I fell in love with teaching during my undergraduate years at Brandeis University. I was a teaching assistant during both my junior and senior years. I not only got to TA at the college level at Brandeis for biology laboratory courses, but I also was a TA for several summers for the Johns Hopkins summer program CTY for both a Neuroscience and Fast Paced Biology course. My passion for teaching lead me to a Wilcox Fellowship at Concord Academy after graduation. Concord Academy is an elite preparatory school located in Concord, MA, and here I spent two years teaching students and developing my skills as an educator. I taught two sections of a freshman biology course and during my second year at the school, I was also in the Academic Support Center. Here I worked one-on-one with students who needed extra help in their courses. After my two years at Concord, I began medical school at New York Medical College. Between my first and second year of medical school I developed my own three-week Neuroscience course for the Johns Hopkins summer program CTY. I was responsible for the overall running of this course from the creation of all the lesson plans to all of the grading. Overall during my time as a medical student, my knowledge of the sciences has expanded exponentially. Additionally, all my interactions with patients have taught me how to break down information into understandable and meaningful pieces and then check for overall understanding. This is the same method with which I engage all students. Making sure that all students progress and do well is always my ultimate goal.
