I graduated from Brown University in 2017 with a degree in Molecular Biology and Immunology. Over the past several years, Ive worked in a variety of capacities, including several biomedical research positions, as a medical scribe, and a tutor at Varsity Tutors! I intend to apply to medical school during the summer of 2018.
These experiences have allowed me to develop an even greater appreciation for the sciences than what Ive learned through textbook learning alone. Through tutoring, I hope to instill the same level of excitement and subject appreciation in my students, not just in the sciences; but in a variety of subjects, such as English, Writing, and Math. More generally, I want my students to learn to value education and use it as a means for better understanding the world around them.
