I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Physics with a second major in classical guitar performance, taking a year off after my sophomore year to study flamenco guitar at the University of Seville in Spain. I started working in biomedical research during my sophomore year and continued throughout college. After graduating, I worked in ophthalmology research at Washington University Medical before moving to New York City, where I am currently conducting breast cancer research as the lab manager in an immunology lab at Columbia University Medical Center. I am extremely comfortable with physics and mathematics (from my studies) as well as biology, chemistry, and biochemistry (through my research experience) and sincerely enjoy tutoring students in those areas. I also enjoy tutoring for standardized tests. While I was studying for the SAT, ACT, and MCAT, all of my preparation was through self-study; as a result, I have a unique approach to preparing for tests that emphasizes knowing the test itself more than the actual material. In addition to tutoring natural sciences and standardized test prep, I tutor Spanish, which I studied for 7 years and spoke for a year while living in Spain. In my spare time, I play guitar, cook for my friends, read, and play with my cat Suki.
