I am a current student at New York University studying Neuroscience and am pursuing medicine. In my free time, I enjoy seeing live music, getting food with friends, exploring art galleries, dancing, and writing. As much as I love science, I am a huge fan of the arts and try my best to stay involved throughout the school year. I am from California but have loved living in the city so far, and I plan on staying here after graduation.
I started tutoring in high school when some of my friends asked me to help them in their math class. Meanwhile, I was also working with ESL students in their English class. I realized how much I enjoyed teaching and I especially loved knowing I was helping someone. I continued tutoring once I got to New York mainly working with elementary school students. I offer preparation for the ACT and ISEE, and I am especially equipped to help with the math, writing, and science sections.
My philosophy is that every student is different and has unique learning methods and my goal is to understand them and work with it. I want students to feel comfortable telling me their struggles and confusion, so I take my relationship with them very seriously. I, myself, was not a hard worker for many years. I understand how difficult and discouraging academics can be, and my goal is to alleviate the stress of it all and give my students confidence.
