I am a recent graduate of Yale University and incoming first year medical student at Columbia University. Originally from the DC area, I have always had a passion for science and medicine and pursued a degree in Biology while at Yale. During the 2008-2009 academic year, I tutored science, math, English, history, and Mandarin Chinese part-time with a DC-based tutoring company. At Yale, I worked as a freshman counselor to provide academic and career advice to incoming freshmen. I have taken both SAT and MCAT test prep classes and am familiar with both tests as well as the preparation necessary to score well. My personal career goals include attending medical school to pursue either immunology/infectious diseases or psych/neurology, teaching biology at the university level, and working in public/global health with either the CDC or the WHO.

In terms of tutoring style, I like use examples and explanations, practice problems, short-term and long-term scheduling, and positive feedback to achieve results with my students. I find real-world examples are often useful in explaining difficult concepts and restoring interest in a subject. At times I too struggled with science and know how important it is to stay motivated in order to succeed.

In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering, listening to and performing music (jazz and classical/choral), swimming, and hip-hop dance.
