I am a fourth year medical student at the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Phoenix. I have been tutoring middle and high school students in Math, English Literature, Writing, and Science for over eight years. Most recently I worked as a paid tutor for my peers in medical school. I graduated from ASU Barrett Honors College in 2012 with a B.S. in Biology-Cell, Genetics, and Developmental Biology. During undergrad I took several courses in English Literature, Law, and Sociology, so I love a variety of subjects. My favorite subjects to tutor are Biology, Chemistry, and Writing, but I also enjoy tutoring Math! I have experience tutoring students for standardized exams such as the ACT, SAT, MCAT, and USMLE Step 1 as well.
I always develop trusting relationships with students and work one-on-one as both a tutor and a mentor. I like to help students find ways to problem solve and learn how to teach themselves. I find it important to maintain continual communication with students (and parents if pertinent). I capitalize on tutoring sessions by always preparing beforehand and establishing short-term and long-term goals. Additionally, I am available to my students via phone and email should questions arise between sessions.
I enjoy working with students from all backgrounds and academic levels. In the past, I have tutored students from gifted middle and high schools and inner city schools in Philadelphia and South Phoenix. I also worked as a student athlete tutor at ASU for our up-and-coming athletes.
My hobbies include trail running and hiking, reading/writing poetry, classical Indian dance, volunteering at the hospital, mentoring youth in my community, going to art shows/galleries/museums, and spending time with my friends and family. Academically my goal is to become an Ophthalmologist and continue to take part in research.
