I recently graduated from Medical School in June 2013, and I am taking a year off before I start residency in general surgery. During this year, I will be working on several research projects at hospitals across NYC.

I have a very unique, extensive, and wide-ranging academic background:

1) M.D. - St. George's University School of Medicine, Keith B. Taylor Global Scholars program (graduated 2013)

2) M.P.H. - Columbia University, Mailman School of Public Health - concentration: Environmental & Molecular Epidemiology (graduated 2009)

3) M.S. - Mount Sinai School of Medicine of New York University - concentration: Biomedical Sciences (graduated 2009)

4) B.A. - Cornell University, College of Arts & Sciences - double-major: 1) Molecular & Cell Biology; 2) Classics (Classical Civilization)

I possess several years of teaching experience. As a graduate student at Columbia, I was chosen to be the teaching assistant for the "Risk Assessment, Management, and Communication" course; during medical school, I was chosen to be a teaching assistant for the "Medical Biochemistry" course and the "Anatomy Laboratory" course. I held weekly review sessions and question and answer sessions, and I always made myself available via email/phone. I always enjoyed taking the time to help my colleagues understand the difficult concepts being presented to us during our coursework.

I absolutely love teaching and making difficult concepts digestible and easier to understand. I always sought to make learning something that is fun and not drone and boring. When something is fun and enjoyable, it makes learning much easier. I plan to go into academic surgery later in my career and be very active in teaching, mentoring, and assisting medical students.

I have confidence in my abilities to teach general and advanced math as well as all levels of the sciences. Since I was also a Classics major at Cornell, I have great experience in essay editing.
