Tests are just one way to take a student’s measure. I believe in going beyond the test and teaching the subjects. With an infectious enthusiasm for science, I help students synthesize topics across different disciplines until it all makes sense. Building from a strong foundation, each of my students can then develop effective academic strategies and succeed.
I am a recent Bachelor of Science from Cornell University, where my studies revolved around applying life science research to health and social studies. I have served as an undergraduate teaching assistant for several courses, and specializes in 1-on-1 tutoring for introductory biochemistry. Biochemistry is my favorite because of how many other disciplines it synthesizes. After achieving a 38 on the MCAT (99.1%), I began mentoring students on test preparation strategies.
While planning to apply to medical school, I spend my time as a clinical research aide and a lead organizer for New York's Be The Match 5K Fundraiser. I also love dancing, weight lifting, and cooking.
