I have a BA in Anthropology from Barnard College and a MS in Epidemiology from the University of Massachusetts, and I am currently doing cancer research at the Mount Sinai Medical Center. As a student I was never been able to decide on a favorite subject because I felt anything I studied in school could be fun and much easier if approached with the right attitude. Instead of boring memorization, I like to look for patterns and think of creative approaches to study subjects that can otherwise be very frustrating. My goal as a tutor is to help students gain confidence and to think of creative approaches to subjects (or standardized tests) that they struggled with in the past.
