I graduated summa cum laude from Duke University with a BSE in Biomedical Engineering, and I will be continuing my education this fall at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. My interests in math and science led me to pursue an engineering major in college, but ultimately my passion for helping others steered me towards a career in the field of medicine. In my free time, you can most often find me hanging out with friends, playing basketball, working out, or eating pizza.

One of my favorite methods of helping others is teaching. As an older brother, I have been teaching in some forms throughout most of my life. In high school, most of my teaching experience came from annual basketball camps that the varsity team would hold for elementary-age players. In college, I gained plenty of experience on the academic side of teaching, as I was a TA for an introductory computer programming class, a paid peer tutor for physics, and, for three years, the treasurer of a Duke-based high school tutoring organization. I am very invested in my students' success, and nothing makes me happier than helping them to finally grasp a difficult concept. I know that every student learns differently, so I always start my tutoring sessions by first trying to learn what the student's strengths and weaknesses are. After allowing them to work through and explain a few problems in front of me, I try to tailor an individualized teaching method to best suit each student's specific needs. While my methods may not be the perfect match for every student out there, I can promise that I will always be a patient, diligent, and understanding tutor, and I will be genuinely dedicated to helping each of my students achieve their goals.
