I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2011 majoring in Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering and minoring in Chemistry. I worked for several years as a product engineer in industry and now am applying to go to medical school. While a college student, I was a campus tour guide, undergraduate researcher, violinist in orchestra, and I tutored both high school and college students for the Pitt Engineering Career Access Program. The tutoring program was designed to support students focused on graduating with a degree in science, technology, engineering, or math. My favorite subjects to tutor are anything in the math and science fields. I firmly believe that with the right approach and a bit of practice, anyone can grasp these topics. I treat solving math problems more like solving a puzzle, one piece at a time. Since I am passionate about the importance of math and science, I enjoy making them more relatable to a student by explaining their real world applications whenever possible.
One of my favorite activities is distance running. I am a volunteer coach for the Girls on the Run Philadelphia organization and I ran the 2013 Chicago Marathon.
Overall, I am an enthusiastic person and am excited about any opportunity to have a positive impact. I try to combine my technical background and creative personality to make learning a difficult topic easier for a student. I enjoy tutoring and find a great sense of gratification in helping students achieve their academic endeavors.
