My goal is to promote an interactive and engaging tutoring experience to my students. My attempts to accomplish this are through visualization, analogies, and consistent questioning of course topics. Everyone learns material differently and every course that we engage in is different from the other. Thus it will be our goal to determine what works best for you individually and what weak spots need to be targetted for an eventual better understanding of the topics
My educational background stems from Stony Brook University, where I obtained a bachelor's of science in biochemistry. My highest qualification for this position comes from the fact that I have spent a year as an undergraduate peer tutor for courses such as biochemistry I, molecular & cellular biology, and organ & cell physiology. I have also obtained level 1 certification by the college of reading & learning association. In addition, I have also had 3 years of experience as an undergraduate teaching assistant for biochemistry I, cellular & molecular biology, and introductory biology. Finally, I have also had 1.5 years of undergraduate research experience in structural biology, thus I am able to have a deeper understanding of the material that was taught to me in classes.
Currently I am also working as a technical support agent for a biotech company, where solving scientific problems on research applications is something I do every day. I am also interested in one day becoming a physician and hope that this experience also helps reinforce the material that I have learned over the years. I am also very open to new perspectives, so please feel free to let me know your thoughts and opinions when we have sessions together!
