I'm a third-year undergraduate student at UC Berkeley, majoring in Chemical Biology. Interests: chemistry and math, The Godfather (both the novel and the films), Jane Austen, singing, fencing, soccer games. I believe teaching is enlightening for both the learner and the teacher.
I volunteered as a science teacher at the National Zoological Museum of China for 6 years, educating the public on biodiversity and evolution. In high school, I started the Project for Village-In-City Children with my friends, through which we taught disadvantaged elementary school students science, English and arts. In college, I excel in every class from science to humanities, and have constantly helped my classmates with lecture content and homework problems. Starting this fall, I will be in charge of the general chemistry tutoring program...
