I am a medical student at the University of Miami, where I also pursued my undergraduate studies. Originally from San Diego, I have lived in Miami for eight years. I have always loved learning a variety of subjects, which explains why I studied biology, political science, and Spanish in college. My goal is to help you learn as much as you can and reach your true potential. I will work hard to make sure that that happens, as long as you put in the work, too! I also enjoy tutoring test prep, including the SAT (including subject tests), ISEE, SSAT, and even GRE.

I tutored in high school for our chapter of the National Honor Society and tutored mainly for fun. I was even voted the best tutor upon graduation. Since then, I have enjoyed spending a lot of my time tutoring fellow students. I have also helped my fellow students and friends with their college applications, interviews, and personal statements when applying for graduate programs or jobs. I have a sharp desire to tailor the knowledge and experience I have to different individuals and situations. I can simplify complex concepts in ways that others can understand. As someone who has had to study harder than many others in some respects, I understand that everyone learns differently and appreciate how patient I need to be in helping in others.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I am here to help students learn what to do to succeed, not to guide their hands for them.

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

We will go over what the student knows are his or her strengths and weaknesses, what their goals are, how we will achieve those goals, and what our timeline will be.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I will encourage them to study on their own and prepare at least a few questions for me for each session so that they can take charge of their own success.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Positive encouragement always helps keep students motivated.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I would reframe the concept in a different way and adapt the material to the student's specific needs.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

I would encourage practice and would also sit down to go over individual questions.
