I graduated Cum Laude from Pomona College in 2012 with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Neuroscience. During my time at Pomona, I completed pre-med coursework, pursued part-time research in a developmental neurobiology lab, and was active in the biology department’s mentorship program. I worked as a TA for introductory genetics classes and tutored students individually in genetics, cell biology, and biochemistry. I also competed on my college’s varsity swim team. Since graduating, I have worked as a full-time research specialist in a cancer biology lab at the University of Pennsylvania and part-time as a lifeguard and swim instructor at the UPenn pool. I am starting medical school this fall. Clearly I am passionate about science, and I think a huge part of that comes from a general love of learning about the world. I have always enjoyed teaching others, and helping students find things that they are passionate about. I think enjoying the process of learning is really important, which is why I try to incorporate as much fun and humor into tutoring as possible. In addition to teaching subject material and study skills, I consider it a huge part of my job as a tutor to empower struggling students and build their confidence, so that they may be better prepared to face academic challenges in the future.
