I am a graduate of Cornell University and The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. I received my Bachelor of Science in Human Development with an emphasis on Social and Personality Development and, later, my Master of Science in Public Health with a concentration in Women's and Reproductive Health. Throughout my training, I conducted extensive research in adolescent reproductive health and teen childbearing, earning publications in a number of clinical research journals. I began tutoring Math and Reading for elementary-aged students when I was in high school myself and continued my passion for education as a teaching assistant at both Cornell and Johns Hopkins. I am currently working for the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program at Goucher College, where I teach Chemistry and MCAT courses and lead small group and individual tutoring sessions in Biology, Organic Chemistry, and Physics. Although I enjoy tutoring a range of topics, I am particularly enthusiastic about Chemistry, as I enjoy helping students realize the applications of this science to every day life, and MCAT preparation, as I love watching my students actualize their goals. It is my hope that in working with students I can provide them with the tools necessary to approach any subject matter critically, improving their ability to solve problems and increasing their intellectual curiosity and overall love of learning. In my spare time, I enjoy Pilates, running, improv comedy, and cheering on my Baltimore Ravens and Orioles!
