I am excited to be a tutor for Varsity Tutors. I have a Biology/Spanish degree from Fordham University and have since worked as a New York City high school Biology teacher as well as in biological research. In addition to running and exploring the city in my spare time, I am a mentor for a New York City program that boasts 100% college acceptance rate for participating students. In high school, I received scores on my PSAT/SAT that helped me get into a great college and earn a full-tuition National Merit Scholarship. Through that process, I learned many tricks to raise standardized test scores and to really use the results to my best advantage. I also like to help students with all subjects and in particular, Science, Math, Writing, Regents exams, high school entrance exams, and PSAT/SAT. As a teacher, I understood first hand that everyone learns in different ways and at different ability levels, but every student can achieve at their best when they receive personalized instruction tailored to their needs and interests. As a tutor, I hope to help students throughout the city understand how they can best perform in school and on tests to achieve their academic and personal goals.
