Currently, I am a 4th-year dental student. I have an M.S. in Biomedical Sciences from Midwestern University
and a B.S. in Microbial Biotechnology, B.A. in English, and a minor in Biochemistry from Rutgers University-New Brunswick. In my professional background, I have worked as a research scientist at Rutgers University continuing studies from my undergraduate Honors Thesis on Hyperthremophilic bacteria's ability to use alternate carbon sources as an alternative to their primary energy source. As a medical researcher at Mt. Sinai Medical School and Hospital, I worked in the Nephrology department on elucidating the mechanism of DNA/RNA pores in kidney cells.

When I was an undergraduate at Rutgers University, I became involved in the Rutgers Learning Center, where I tutored fellow students in biological sciences. I enjoyed working with the students in helping them to understand challenging concepts, problem-solving skills, and find academic success. Also, I was a Teaching Assistant for a summer chemistry program at the university, which allowed me the opportunity to work closely with both the students and the faculty. Upon graduation, I have been a private tutor while also taking continuing education classes in various biological sciences to keep up with new concepts and technologies.

I am very well qualified and would be an asset to your student because of my industry work experience and my past experience as a private tutor and teaching assistant for the Rutgers University Learning Center. I enjoy tutoring students from all cultures by helping them build confidence in their ability to achieve academically. I have familiarity with various science resources that can be employed in tutoring sessions to aid in the student's different learning styles. I have always maintained a good rapport with my colleagues, students, and parents. In addition, I feel my diverse background and skillset enable me to draw upon a variety of resources to help aid in the learning process.

Q & A

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

In my first session, I try to understand the best way the student learns, and employ various teaching techniques to help them learn the concepts they are having trouble with.

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is to make the concepts relatable to the students everyday life. I try to break down technical terms and use everyday language equivalents.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

There are many ways to help a student become an independent learner, but I feel the best way is to allow the student to try to work out problems on their own with guidance. Also, asking the students to explain concepts in their own words is helpful to solidify concepts they are learning.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

To keep a student motivated, I would keep a positive attitude, and find a new way to approach the material (such as incorporating student's hobbies and how they relate to the subject).
