I am a future medical student interested in bestowing upon others the same passion for learning and problem solving that I have been taught by my own teachers. I am driven by the rewarding feeling of helping others overcome academic obstacles.
I graduated from Emory University (ranked 21st in US News best colleges) in 2015 and just recently completed a post-baccalaureate premedicine program. I have a strong science background and I enjoy working with students on ACT test prep as well as various other areas.
I was a 3 sport athlete in cross country, indoor track, and outdoor track at Emory University, and I enjoy watching and participating in sports.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

The best way to tackle a student's weaknesses is by playing to their strengths. This makes the process towards learning new material more efficient and enjoyable.

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

A first session will typically involve inquiring which areas a student would like to focus on. I would then execute a short term plan towards achieving the student's goals. At the end, I would formulate a long term plan tailored to assisting the student achieve their goals.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

The most beneficial thing a student can gain is an understanding of how to teach themselves any new topic. As a tutor, I like to focus on teaching how to approach thinking about complex topics in addition to providing direct assistance in a student's learning.
