Kristina Valladares

Tutor Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Biology, Biology Honors, AP Biology

Hi! My name is Kristina Valladares and I was born and raised in Lakeland, Florida. Since the age of 8, my passion was driven towards animals and becoming a veterinarian, but that changed once I started college at Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) in 2015. I was a part of the Honors College, a member of Phi Eta Sigma National Honors Society, and a member of TriBeta National Honors Society. I was a teacher’s assistant for an entry level program called Biology Boot Camp, as well as for General Biology 1. I was also a tutor of various subjects for the athletic department at FGCU. As an undergraduate, I did cancer research which led me to my new career choice. I love the research and teaching aspects of science, so I would love to become a professor and do research for a university. I have recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and am continuing my studies at the University of South Florida. My major will be Medical Sciences with a concentration of Molecular Medicine.

Besides studying for classes, I am a huge movie buff, especially if it involves the marvel universe. I love meeting new people and learning new things. If my head isn’t in a text book, it’s out exploring new places with friends.
