My name is Fairooz, and I am currently a third-year medical student at Upstate Medical University. Ive always wanted to be a doctor for as far back I can remember. I recall the visits made to my pediatrician during my early days. The little girl in me could not help but be mesmerized by the doctors qualities: his patience for his long hours, his kindness, his empathy, his eagerness to listen, and his intelligence. His image remained in my mind as the kind of person Id want to be, and I try to apply many of these qualities to all my interactions, whether with patients or with students that I tutor.
It is part of my personal philosophy that we should take the knowledge that we acquire over time and spread it to others in an easy-to-grasp manner. For as long as I can remember, I have always been enthusiastic about teaching others what I know, for I feel that knowledge is to be shared. I am a good listener, easy to get along with, and my main goal is to make everyone I interact with feel comfortable in my presence. This means that I am very receptive to the needs of my students and I personalize the way I approach my students based on what l feel is best for them to learn and excel. I understand that everyone does not learn best the same way. There are some students that are more visual learners, others who are more auditory learners, and yet others who learn by a combination of both. Some students learn better by reading textbooks while other require help in extracting the main concepts. I find this difference to be the most exciting aspect of teaching, as it challenges me to mold my approach each time I encounter a new student.
