I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago in May 2016 with a Bachelors of Science degree and majored in Biology. I will attend the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry in the fall.
During my undergraduate years, I have tutored students in math (up to Trigonometry), writing, biology and chemistry and I absolutely enjoyed it! I feel great to be able to teach someone shortcuts to solve difficult problems and understand difficult concepts.

I tutor the DAT (Dental Admissions Test) and especially enjoy the perceptual ability section of the exam. I teach crucial test taking strategies I have learned from attending an 8-week Kaplan DAT-prep course. I scored in the 80th percentile on the DAT in the Biology and Chemistry sections; and scored in the 75th percentile overall.

I am eager to work with students who are falling behind, as well as students who want to get get ahead or explore outside of the normal curriculum. I enjoy working with students and find great pleasure in seeing my students succeed. I'm patient and am skilled at explaining ideas and concepts in multiple ways to accommodate the needs of the students. I have a laid back demeanor, and I try to make studying as stress-free and enjoyable. I will always answer your calls and texts and I'm great at responding to emergency "My problem set is due tomorrow?!?!" or "I have a test when?!" situations.

I have a thorough knowledge of the Cornell style of taking notes in order to perfect note-taking and study skills. At my job at a high school, I assisted students in learning classroom material, encouraged students to challenge themselves, helped students self-analyze, reflect upon, and improve study methods, and also provided tips for remembering difficult material. In addition to providing general tips for all students, I tailor study practices to fit a student's individual needs.

I am looking forward to helping you achieve academic success!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

In a typical first session with a student, I like to ask, "How do you feel about this material?", with the usual response being generally negative. Then I reassure the student that he/she will feel more confident about the material after our lesson. From there, I ask what they are having problems with.
