I am a graduate of Harvard University (2010). There, I received my Bachelor of Arts in Neurobiology with a secondary in Mind/Brain/Behavior. After graduation, I started medical school at Stanford University, with expected graduation in 2015. Currently, I am at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia pursuing a Masters in Biostatistics to help with data interpretation of the studies I have worked on during medical school, and to inform research questions for my future career as a physician.

I tutored many of my peers in math and science courses while at Harvard, taking part in the Awards Peer Tutor program in which a group of tutors met once a week to discuss better strategies to help teach students who were struggling with course material. Additionally, while at Stanford, I was a teaching assistant for an upper-level Developmental Neurobiology course for undergraduate and graduate students, leading discussion sections to go over course materials and readings.

I tutor a broad range of subjects and tests, including the SAT and MCAT. My favorite subjects to tutor are the math and sciences (particularly biology), both of which I have a strong background in through both undergraduate and graduate training.

When it comes to tutoring, I like to see what a student knows first before offering guidance. In medicine, we often use the Socratic method of teaching, asking first general questions that test a student's ability to know the motivations for learning a particular subject, and finishing with more focused questions to find gaps of knowledge that a student can fill into his or her personal heuristic. This method of tutoring is particularly well-suited for test prep, math, and science sessions.

While I have enjoyed my medical and statistical studies in graduate school, I am also a lover of travel, film, fitness, dance, and the amusement park industry; I have ridden over 200 roller coasters in the United States, and hope to top 300 within the next two years!
