I graduated as valedictorian of El Toro High School with as an AP Scholar with Distinction, with a 5.0 GPA after having take 10 AP classes and an IB diploma. I was subsequently offered a full medical scholarship to attend King Edward Medical University to attain my medical degree abroad. After graduating medical school, I spent some time at the University of Alabama and UCLA to complete research work in neurological surgery. I am currently at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College as the Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Brain and Skull Base Fellow in the Department of Neurosurgery with Dr. Mark Souweidane and Dr. Theodore Schwartz. I have been accepted for a residency training position in Neurology set to begin in July.

I have worked as a tutor for numerous subjects since I graduated high school in 2007. I began as a tutor through El Toro High School in general math and English classes. I spent half a year at the Kumon Math & Reading Center in Mission Viejo before beginning medical school. During my research endeavors, I worked for Elite Home Tutoring and TutorNerds in California, tutoring students in all sections of the ACT and SAT exams, AP Biology, Honors Anatomy and Physiology, Geometry, Algebra, Algebra II, Chemistry, Physics, AP U.S. History, AP Computer Science, and a host of numerous other related subjects.

My favorite subject to tutor is history because I love national and international politics and I love to help students realize trends in history and politics - to see the bigger picture rather than just memorize facts and figures.

I believe that the purpose of tutoring should be to encourage, inspire, and empower a student. If I can make a student feel confident in his or her ability, even after he or she no longer needs me, he or she will feel confident and capable of achieving his or her academic goals. That should be the ultimate goal of a good tutor, not just to help a student simply pass a class or get a particular grade.

I enjoy running, watching TV shows and movies, reading up on neuroscience, spending time with my friends and family, cooking, and photography when I'm not working.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Motivation and emotional ease are at the heart of learning. I believe that if I can make a student feel confident about a subject and let them feel that it's okay to make mistakes and learn from them, they can stop doubting themselves and start enjoying the learning process. Above all, that is my goal.
