I am an 18-year-old sophomore with junior standing in college. I am passionate about the sciences both social and hard sciences. I love working in the lab and spend extra time working on skills whenever I can. I am pediatric and adult CPR/AED/First Aid certified and I have been looking into becoming an EMT-Basic. I love working with people and I have worked in the food and customer service industry. My various positions have been a waitress/cashier/food prep in a bakery and an outreach caller in a telephone bank. I especially enjoy working with children and have volunteered as a tutor and as a museum docent at a nature preserve which allowed me to work with children and teach them about different exhibits. Currently, I am interested in going to graduate school or medical school to become a biological anthropologist. I have previously volunteered tutoring elementary school children in reading and comprehension at Eddison Elementary School in Henderson, NV. I was volunteering there for about a month and would tutor one on one by having the students read books designated by the teacher with the vocabulary that the student needed to work on. I would assist in pronunciation and comprehension of the vocabulary. In addition, I have three younger brothers who I have helped with homework countless times. While it is unofficial, it was a helpful experience to prepare me for working with children and on my teaching skills. I like to make subjects interesting and therefore will try to find real world ways to apply the subject as well as relate it to the students personal interests. I like to use past exams and homeworks to start working from and then delve into the new topics in order to prepare the students for complete mastery of a subject. For me, an important area to emphasis would be critical and logical thought and so I try to promote that skill as best I can. Fun Facts: My biggest hobby is baking. I have previously worked in a French bakery and I continue to bake often in my own kitchen. I knit, sew, and am an avid reader. I spend a lot of time in lectures and in lab because I am extremely passionate about the sciences and my studies. I love pretty much any animal, especially cats.
