I'm a biology student at Stony Brook University and a past researcher in neuroscience and x-ray protein crystallography. My background has been heavy handed with Biology and Chemistry courses and has drawn on a thorough and frequent use of algebra as a basis for most of my work. I grew up in Queens, NY and attended a small private school for most of my education prior to university. Having been a student in a small high school and a student in a huge university, I most definitely have an appreciation for personalized attention when endeavoring to learn any subject.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe in helping students understand the fundamentals of the subject in question before proceeding trying problems. However, once the basics are covered and well understood, I also believe in doing many practice problems to reinforce that understanding. A very important tool in studying is also understanding why an incorrect answer is wrong and not just memorizing the correct answers.

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

Usually, my first sessions begin by gauging the student's level of understanding the content. I also try to understand the student's preferred method of understanding. Some students prefer visuals while others prefer repetition.
