Hi, my name is Vicky and I'm a 4th year Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology major at UCLA. Academics-wise, I love biology and writing (cell biology and nonfiction essays are my favorites!). Other things I love include sweet drinks, superheroes, green places, and good stories.
For writing, I've proofread numerous college essays, both transfer and non-transfer. I also used to be a tutor for a 10th grade humanities class where I proofread literary analysis essays. For other subjects, I tutored elementary school students in math for a couple years and a 6th grader in violin for a year.
