I graduated with from Bowdoin College with a B.A., cum laude, in Biochemistry and East European and Eurasian Studies, earning departmental honors for my biochemical research and the Russian department prize. Since graduation I have continued research in the biomedical sector. In high school, at Boston University Academy, I served as a peer tutor in the sciences, and I was a peer mentor in college. I have additional teaching experience in sailing, which I also competed in at the varsity level in college. In addition to my passion for sailing, I am an avid skier and outdoorswoman, and a passionate fan of Boston sports. As a tutor, I offer a broad range of scientific subjects, including Physics, Chemistry and Biology, and I am particularly passionate about Biochemistry and Microbiology. I also offer and enjoy test prep, including the SAT and independent school entrance exams such as the ISEE and SSAT. As an educator, I am passionate about helping every student, because I believe that everyone has the potential to succeed in Science and excel on standardized tests. I love the subjects I tutor and I strive to help my students appreciate the value of knowledge so they understand not only the material, but why it is relevant and important in their lives.
