I'm a senior pre-med student from Brazil pursuing a BS in Biology, BA in Economics double-major with minors in Chemistry and Health Care Management and Policy at the University of Miami. I have put a lot of time and effort in my preparation for medical school, and I want to use the skills I've learned along the away to help others pursuing the same path. I hope to help other students to understand challenging content, and to navigate through college or medical school applications.MCAT & SAT 90th percentile. 3.88 GPA.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I understand each person learns differently. I try to understand what works best for each student. I try to use my successful experiences to help students develop their own skills, and ultimately, be confident enough to tackle content and exercises on their own.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Talk about their academic background, what studying styles have worked best for them in the past, and what academic goals are they hoping to achieve in the short and long term.
