I am a graduate of Providence College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. Upon graduation, I worked in hospital administration until beginning my pursuit of a Master of Science in Medical Science through the Drexel University College of Medicine. I have been tutoring middle school, high school and college students in Chicago through Varsity Tutors since November 2014. My own passion for math and science and my academic history of them has resulted in a focus in tutoring within these subjects. Of these, my favorite topics to tutor are Algebra and Chemistry, as they both have discernible patterns within the material which leads to a better understanding as one builds new topics on previous ones. I have found that students have the most success in first reviewing basic concepts to assess and address where they are having difficulty, followed by continuous problem-solving to reinforce the concepts and strategies until they become second nature. Like the subjects that I teach, I believe that education is an ongoing and ever-growing component that is necessary for a happy and fulfilling life, and that there is always something new to learn each and every day. In my spare time, I like to exercise, volunteer, play basketball, go snowboarding, watch sports (mainly football and soccer) or play video games.
