I am a recent graduate of medical school. Prior to medical school, I taught high school math and science for seven years in San Francisco, CA. In addition to teaching, I tutored students of all ages. I enjoy helping student meet their academic potential, as well as showing students the beauty and fun of mathematics, a subject that intimidates a lot of people. I have a bachelors degree in Mathematics from Johns Hopkins University and a Biology degree from San Francisco State University. I am passionate about encouraging students to consider science and engineering as career choices and the importance of pursuing higher education. My favorite subjects to tutor are high school math (Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus and Calculus), biology and chemistry. I also tutor elementary and middle school math and science, and can assist with test prep (SAT, ACT).
I enjoy movies and music (I am trained in classical violin). I also enjoy meeting new people and traveling. I was raised in South Carolina and lived in California before moving to the Midwest to pursue a career in medicine. I am enthusiastic, patient and get along with many personality types.
