Hey, my name is Virginia and I am a graduate student at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I am getting my Doctorate in immune system and cancer research. I love math and science. I am also fluent in Spanish. I believe that learning should always be fun and accessible. Teaching and mentoring have been the highlights of my graduate experience. I have taken various teaching courses in graduate school and have served as a tutor for years before starting graduate school and also as a tutor for other PhD students. My philosophy is that if you learn something well you only need to learn it once.
