"...in political science and a M.S. in journalism, I am best at helping my students take their academics to the next level in reading, writing, and essay composition.

"... 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..."

"...My main goal as a teacher is to inspire students at all levels with passion, since I am guided by the belief that the topics we study in the classroom are highly pertinent to their daily experience and also to our own personal lives. I constantly work on creating a classroom environment that can foster as much discussion, debate, and interaction as possible. I am guided by the belief that the work we do in a class is inherently valuable, and it also serves as preparation for students to experience what we study outside a strictly academic context. In practice, this means that I seek to foster the students’ capacity to apply themselves rigorously to the material, to create a dynamic exchange of ideas in the classroom through small and large group discussions, and finally, to sharpen their awareness of the fact that the issues we explore and the tools of analysis and communication we use in this exploration are highly pertinent to their daily experience..."

"...As a result, I became well-educated in both classic literature as well as contemporary literary theory focusing on a variety of topics such as gender, media, class and social structure, and an assortment of other theories and topics (all of which I'd love to chat about if given the opportunity). In my downtime, I love exploring and trying new things (mainly food) and I'm an avid animal lover. Here's some additional trivia about me: I was originally born in Texas (Air Force family) Trying new restaurants is one of my favorite activities Favorite movie: The Right Stuff (that Air Force family clearly had an impact on me...) Favorite book(s): Nothing compares to the Harry Potter series, in my humble opinion Favorite animal: My two golden retrievers, Logan and Skylar (though my cats make a decent bid for this vote) Favorite TV show: Mad Men (nope, my company doesn't make it - but I'm genuinely hooked on this series) I warmly encourage you to contact me! I look forward to meeting you..."

"...I was able to hone in on and developed my own pedagogical content knowledge and curricular knowledge as I formulated my own unique teaching philosophy. During this time, I was also selected by my school's department to write and publish curriculum for the Taft Institute, with the objective in teaching students how to become active and informed citizens. For example, as a means to achieve these objectives, I was selected to teach a lesson about the electoral process during an intensive seminar..."

"...As an undergraduate, I was a teaching assistant for introductory Russian, and worked with students both in group and in individual sessions. My academic background is varied, and thus I am able to tutor students in a range of topics, including Environmental Science, Biology, Psychology, Statistics, French, Russian, English Language and Literature, and exam preparation (SAT, ACT, AP and GRE). My favorite topics to tutor in are Biology and Environmental Science, since I love sharing my interest in the science and using it to help students better understand and enjoy these exciting fields. My teaching philosophy is best summarized as "show not tell" -- I find that guiding students such that they can arrive at the answers themselves, rather than just explaining the problem, helps them fully realize their potential for success..."
