Aaron Yan

Tutoring Director of Northwood Chapter

My interest in biology began developing starting from when I watched a dissection of a lamb's heart which led me to pursue my interest in how the human body functions. Eventually, as a junior, I whittled my interest down to specifically biochemistry and microbiology and how they affect the human body. As a part of OC Biology, I hope to not only be able to help others learn about biology but also to further increase my own knowledge. Apart from studying biology, my hobbies include traveling and eating yummy food.
