I recently graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology. I am currently applying to medical school and will be spending my next year performing clinical research with Dr. Eric Strauss, a Sports Medicine specialist, at the Hospital for Joint Diseases in New York City.
Although I have limited tutoring experience in the classroom, as a former captain of my college football team and captain of my basketball, baseball, and football teams in high school, I have spent a lot of time teaching others how to succeed both on and off the field. To excel as a student-athlete at a rigorous academic institution, I had to learn how to properly manage my time due to my hectic schedule. The time management skills, discipline, and perseverance I gained from football are abilities I tried to impart on my teammates every day to help them improve in all aspects of their lives. Since my college teammates voted me the team's Most Inspirational Player, I have gained confidence in my ability to relate to others and lead them through difficult challenges to achieve their goals.
I find one-on-one interactions to be extremely beneficial for improvement in the classroom. I am very adept at working with others and think my time management and leadership skills will be beneficial to any student I tutor, especially student-athletes aspiring to succeed in both academics and athletics. I hope to move at a pace that is challenging but suitable to each individual based on his or her needs.
Since I have done well in the prerequisites for medical school, including the MCAT, I feel that I will be an effective tutor in Math, Biology, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Physics at all levels. Having attended the Hackley School in Tarrytown, New York, I am not only a skilled writer and editor, but I am also familiar with the intricacies of private school. I think I would be a great fit to help any students who are looking to take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE).
As a former athlete, I spend a lot of my free time focused on living a healthy lifestyle, constantly seeking to expand my knowledge about exercise and proper nutrition. I play pickup basketball and read regularly. I am an avid New York sports fan and love watching the Yankees, Giants, and Knicks.
