I graduated from Northwestern University with a Bachelors degree in the Biological Sciences (Molecular Biology and Genetics) and a minor in Chemistry. Currently, I am a PhD Candidate at MIT in Molecular Biology. I have been tutoring math and science since high school for a wide variety of ages and levels (high school freshmen through graduate students). I particularly enjoy working individually with a student to identify what they are struggling with and adapting my teaching style to meet their needs. There is nothing more gratifying than seeing the "lightbulb" moment happen for a student. I am interested in tutoring all levels of math and science. My top priority is tutoring the science sections of the MCAT and the quantitative section of the GRE, but I am happy to tutor high school courses as well. If you are interested, please let me know and we'll talk to see if working together would be a good fit!
