I am a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, where I completed my Bachelor of the Arts in Psychology and excelled in extensive pre-health coursework. My tutoring experience began in high school when I tutored my peers in Calculus as a member of Mu Alpha Theta Math Honor Society. Later as an undergraduate, I was employed as a tutor for the Tutoring Center where I tutored undergraduate and graduate students in General Chemistry I, General Chemistry II and Introductory Physics. Additionally, I was an active volunteer of the West Philly Tutoring Project and travelled to a nearby middle school to tutor adolescents struggling with Geometry and Statistics.
I am certified to tutor Elementary Math, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-calculus, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physics and all subjects of the MCAT. Although I enjoy tutoring all my subjects, Chemistry is my favorite to teach. Since I have completed countless lecture courses and lab courses, and was employed at an organic chemistry lab; chemistry material has become second-nature to me and truly a joy to teach!
As an experienced tutor and aspiring physician, my passion for tutoring stems from the similarities between the tutoring process and the healthcare process. Similar to a doctor and patient, a student presents with a problem, the tutor encourages improvement and explains an effective solution to the student, and like a patient, the student soon triumphs over their academic impediment! I tune in to the specific needs of each of my students. I am easily relatable, friendly, patient, motivating and communicate solutions efficiently. In my spare time I enjoy bike-riding, singing, choreographing dance moves, arranging music and watching comedies with friends.
