For my undergraduate education, I attended the University of Pittsburgh where I received my B.S. in Neuroscience and minors in Chemistry and Spanish. Initially wanting to pursue a career in medicine, I enrolled in Columbia University’s Institute of Human Nutrition where I received my M.S. in Human Nutrition. Through this program, I realized that I wanted to focus my career on improving health at the population level and thus am currently enrolled in Drexel University’s School of Public Health where I will receive my M.P.H. in 2016. My tutoring experience began in high school where I tutored other high school students in math and the basic sciences. As an undergraduate, I also spent two and a half years as a teaching assistant for the Introduction to Chemistry courses during which I acquired extensive teaching techniques and skills. I tutor math, a broad range of science courses, and Spanish and love to tutor all of these subjects equally. Specifically, I enjoy tutoring students in Algebra because I believe that having strong skills in Algebra is essential to academic success in numerous other courses outside of mathematics. Furthermore, my extensive experience tutoring Chemistry students has provided me with excellent tools to guide students through this course. Finally, I have spent significant time in Costa Rica and Honduras, where I worked in medical clinics and often served as a translator for physicians. I also lived in Madrid, Spain for a month where I attended a Language Immersion Study Abroad program. Through these experiences, I have become extremely proficient and conversational in Spanish and love helping students learn this invaluable language. I am a firm believer that all students learn differently and identifying how each student best learns is essential to his/her academic success. Therefore, as a tutor, I aim to specifically tailor my teaching style to each student in order to help them maximize their potential. Outside of academics, I enjoy exercising, playing basketball, cooking, and attending concerts and other live performances in the Philadelphia area.
