I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor's degree in Biology in May of 2013. My coursework at Penn emphasized Chemistry, English, and Writing in addition to Biology. During my college years, I worked for the Penn Tutoring Center as a General Chemistry tutor. Although I enjoy teaching this subject most of all, I am experienced in a broad range of subjects. I am enthusiastic about helping students to learn course material ranging from Biology and Chemistry to English and Writing.

I took the MCAT exam in August of 2012 and completed all of my medical school prerequisites at Penn prior to graduating. I wanted to expand my research and teaching background after college, so I am taking two gap years before starting medical school. During the day, I work at Penn's Abramson Cancer Center as a clinical research coordinator; however, I am very passionate about teaching others how to learn more efficiently. My schedule is very flexible during weeknights and weekends, and I want to use this time to help other students to succeed. Besides tutoring, in my free time I find personal satisfaction in music, fitness, and nature. My hobbies include singing, playing the guitar, biking, and cooking.

I am available to tutor high school and college students in their regular coursework as well as in standardized test preparation. I learned a lot of effective test-taking strategies while completing my undergraduate degree and taking the SAT and MCAT standardized tests. I enjoy sharing my strategies with students and helping them to fine-tune their own skills to meet their academic goals. In my teaching, along with reviewing important course material, I introduce students to new study tactics and problem-solving tips. I believe that tutoring should not only focus on a student's current coursework, but it should also help them to develop their natural abilities in ways that they can carry throughout the rest of their academic career.
