I am a recent Medical School Grad who is preparing to commence residency. I live in the Fairfield county area with my husband, a physicist.
I have eight years of tutoring experience both in undergraduate, graduate, and medical school. I went to college in Texas where I triple majored in Mathematics, Chemistry, and Biology with a 3.7 cumulative GPA. I graduated medical school with awards for outstanding performance in Orthopedic Surgery.
As an undergraduate, I tutored Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus. I also worked as a teaching assistant in the College of Math and Science, teaching and grading Algebra, Pre-calculus, Geometry, Calculus, Biochemistry, General Biology, and Molecular Biology. I tutored students for the MCAT (Medical College Admission Test). As a medical student, I also tutored Anatomy and Calculus.
Since moving to the Northeast, I have tutored SAT Math/Writing/Critical Reading, SAT 2 Math level 2 in addition to Algebra I and II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Biology, and Chemistry, and enjoy doing so. I believe in the difference tutoring makes early in life, as I have benefited from a private tutor myself from 1st through 8th grades and believe this is what significantly altered my trajectory.
I enjoy long bike rides through northern Westchester, New Canaan, Darien, and swimming on the weekends. In the winter, I enjoy alpine skiing in the Connecticut area. I am an avid reader with an extensive library. I also enjoy freelance medical writing and I am pursuing residency in Pathology for July, 2014.
