Ben "... Back in college, I served as a teaching assistant and tutor for a Microbiology honors course for Biology majors, as well as an Introductory Biology/Life Science course for students fulfilling their General Science credits. My time spent as a TA included lecture style teaching and overseeing laboratory sessions for a 20-30 student class, as well as small group and one-on-one tutoring sessions. Next year, I will begin my residency training in Internal Medicine and Neurology, and I am hoping to stay in New York and work at either Cornell, Mount Sinai, or my home institution of NYU. I am experienced and very capable in helping students out with high school or college-level Biology, Chemistry, Physics, various Math courses, as well as standardized tests such as the SAT or the MCAT..."

I truly believe education is a mutual learning and teaching opportunity and enjoy helping my students achieve a thorough understanding (those “Aha!” moments) and appreciation of whatever they choose to study! In the future, I seek to pursue clinical and pedagogical medicine and enjoy biking, skateboarding, dancing, and philosophizing in my spare time.."

In my spare time I like to snowboard at Okemo Mountain in Vermont, seek out awesome Thai food in NYC, run on the Hudson River Park and travel..."
Suleman "...However, without a proper understanding of the simple facets of a subject, the more complicated features can never be truly internalized. I have always enjoyed explaining concepts to other people, and I find it works best when I relate the subject to a personal interest of the student. The most rewarding aspect of teaching is watching a student attack a problem in a step-by-step manner and explain the significance of each step..."
