I graduated with summa cum laude honors from the University at Buffalo in May 2016 with a Bachelors in Science degree in Biomedical Sciences. I'm currently working as a medical scribe in an emergency room. I also tutor Buffalo Public School students with a nonprofit organization and volunteer with refugee families at Buffalo Peace House. In my free time, I enjoy reading and baking. I plan on going to medical school in the future.

Q & A
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Find out what the students expectations and goals are, and assess where they stand in the subject and what areas they need help in.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
By teaching them study skills - such as how to take notes, how to think about the material and how to remember concepts.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
By setting small, realistic goals and encouraging students to reach them.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
Practice, practice, practice. The more they read, the more their comprehension will increase. Teach students how to use context clues to understand what they are reading.
