" We did various service projects including Adopt-A-Block, partnering with United Cerebral Palsy, and most importantly to me, tutoring in Pittsburgh Public Schools. I tutored middle school science in the classroom and had a really great time working with the students, getting to know them, and helping them to grasp new ideas and concepts. It was a joy to watch them learn and share the pride they exhibited in their newfound knowledge. One method I found to be particularly effective was to break complex concepts down into simpler parts and help the student to organize those parts in a way that made more sense to them." ...

While I plan on being a physician in the future, I know that education will play a major role in my career whether it's educating patients, medical students, or residents Having gone through the rigors of the college and medical school application process (including taking the required standardized tests), I'm very familiar with both the content and the test taking process. For the last two years I've served as a teaching assistant to the ...
