I am a recent PhD graduate of Cornell University where I conducted cancer and cell biology research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Before studying at Cornell in NYC, I obtained my Master's Degree in Biomedical Engineering at Tufts University where I worked in a Tissue Engineering lab. As an undergraduate at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, I studied biological engineering while spending summers doing research for the Department of Defense. Ever since I was an undergrad, I've been a Teaching Assistant for courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. As an engineer and a scientist, I am most passionate about tutoring all levels of biology and math, and I enjoy helping students preparing for the SATs or GREs. I know that these tests can be a little scary and intimidating, but it's my job to help you master the material and boost your confidence. Aside from tutoring, I love to read and cook; I am also an endurance athlete -- I hung up my basketball shoes once I realized there was no hope for me in the WNBA, and instead focused my energy on training and competing in marathons and yes, even the occasional ultramarathon! I love the mental and physical challenge, and know firsthand that this focus and drive definitely helps in the classroom.
