Hi there! I'm a fourth year medical student pursuing a career in Psychiatry and hospital administration. I have excelled throughout my years in schooling and hope to share my educational expertise with you! I have extensive experience working with learners in different academic settings, and genuinely enjoy the art of teaching. I have tutored students of all ages, ranging from elementary school to medical school I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Miami in 2012 with a major in psychology and minors in Biology & Chemistry. I went on to attend medical school at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ.

I have successfully taken and performed well on the SAT, MCAT, and United States Medical Licensing Exams (USMLE). My teaching style and learning approach are very similar. In order to fully understand a topic, one should feel comfortable explaining the information to a complete stranger. I hope to create a fun and educational environment to help students succeed! I look forward to working with you.
