Struggling with a science course at the high school or college level? Having a hard time structuring your arguments or ideas in academic papers? I am here to help!
I absolutely love science. I take pleasure in learning about it (both in the classroom and laboratory) as well as going on to teach these principles. I use my passion to help convey the nuances of scientific concepts and will help my students develop their own appreciation for the material. It is my hope that my students will not only do well on their exams and homework but will be able to approach fresh material with confidence and even go on to help their classmates through difficult concepts or problems. I can work with students to help them master the material for a particular topic or to construct a comprehensive program for enrichment throughout the course.
While earning my Bachelor's degree at The University of Chicago, I studied both the biological sciences and the historical context of large-scale research projects in Biology (as an example, the Human Genome Project). I then completed my Master's thesis in Transplant Immunology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine where I studied the methods the host immune system employs to reject donated tissues. I currently work as a researcher in immunology at the NYU Skirball Center for Biomolecular Medicine.
Apart from my laboratory background, I also have substantial writing experience. As an undergraduate, I was a writer and editor for The Triple Helix Journal. This publication covers legal, ethical, and political implications of newly minted discoveries in science and medicine. Also, throughout my laboratory research career I have written and edited manuscripts for publications in research journals. I am available to help students find their voice in college admissions essays or to simply work on the formatting and clarity of individual pieces for class.
I look forward to helping you to succeed in your science coursework and conveying your ideas and arguments on paper!
