Charlene Nguyen — Instructor

Charlene Nguyen is a high school biology teacher at Animo Leadership Charter High School in Los Angeles, CA. She graduated from the University of Southern California with a bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences and had worked in research labs as an undergraduate. Following her graduation from college, she tutored students in biology and chemistry as well as sufficiently prepared students for college entrance exams and standardized tests such as the ACT and SAT.  She has found great joy in witnessing her students go on to four year colleges and universities, many in pursuit of a science or STEM career path.

Charlene Nguyen's passion working with kids in the science stems from interest in the sciences at a young age. She believes that a combination of imagination, creativity, and science content knowledge leads to the discovery of new inventions. Her teaching philosophy is creating a collaborative, safe, and active classroom environment that is primarily driven by inquiry-based learning.


Outside of the classroom, Charlene enjoys hiking the outdoors, traveling, cooking and coming up with new recipes, and weightlifting.
