I recently graduated from Wesleyan University with a degree in Neuroscience, and I'm hoping to eventually become a doctor. As a self-described science nerd, I’m fascinated by the intricacies of how the world around us works, and I think that is infectious to my students. One of my favorite subjects to tutor is Biology because it explains how we ourselves function. My enthusiasm has helped me make science and math engaging and accessible to the students I work with. My experience includes teaching middle school, high school, and college students in both subject specific review and test preparation. I have an approach that is centered around finding the root cause of a students struggles, be it misunderstanding of content, time management, or any other reason, and offering multiple specifically-tailored methods for the student to employ before settling on what works best for them. I aim for my clients to improve as overall students as well, so that they can be successful in the face of any future academic challenges.
Aside from my teaching and academic pursuits, my favorite hobbies are playing music and cooking. I play the bass and sitar in any style from Indian classical music to Top 40 Taylor Swift hits. In the kitchen, I love to take a scientific approach to cooking, understanding the chemical reactions underlying why one dinner tasted delicious while another fell flat.
