I always loved learning and excelled in school but only when I became a teaching assistant in college did I realize how much teaching is something I am great at and passionate about.

I love to see my students excel and will work with them until they feel confident with their mastery of the material whether for a class or standardized test. I know that each student needs something different depending on their grade level, learning style, background, and academic goals and I tailor my teaching style to my students. My main goal when I tutor is to have my student leave the session knowing that they learned a ton and that their grades will show it!

At the same time, my passion for the subjects I teach is contagious and I love to see my students get excited about a subject they previously thought was too challenging, dry, or boring. I like to make the material come alive. For example, when I teach biology, I love to interweave real life examples of how a scientific principle can be seen in nature or in our bodies.

I graduated from Barnard College, Columbia University majoring in Linguistics but then did a post-bac for Pre-Med at Harvard and next year I will be going to medical school. My dual background in the humanities and sciences has given me knowledge in a wide range of subjects. I have experience tutoring anything from elementary school Math to High School English Literature to college level biology. I work with my students on what they are learning using the materials and the style your professor/ teacher prefers because I want my students to ace their tests and assignments!

I took the MCAT exam for medical school, scoring in the 96th percentile and the 100th percentile (perfect score) in the psychology and sociology section of the exam. Since taking the exam, I have tutored for the exam and am eager to share everything I have learned in how I brought my score up. I know which subjects are 'high yield' and which can be brushed over. I have a very good sense of how to help my students structure their studying and I will work with them as much as they need to devise a plan as well as tutor them in subject-specific materials. I fought with the beast that is the MCAT and I want my students to crush it too!
