I studied International Relations, Arabic, and Economics at Tufts University before deciding to pursue a career in medicine. While completing my post-bacc at Harvard, I worked as a research assistant in the lab of the Chief of Nephrology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and volunteered extensively. One of my favorite volunteer experiences was tutoring high school students from Dorchester and Roxbury. I taught my students English, Physics, Chemistry, Algebra, Trigonometry, Biology, and helped them with standardized test preparation. My personal tutoring style is to use a combination of relatable metaphors and real life examples to help my students genuinely understand whatever material we are covering. I scored in the 98th percentile on the SAT and the MCAT2015, so I feel confident with a variety of test preparation. I am currently applying to medical school and enjoy powerlifting, grand strategy games, historical fiction, and chocolate.
