I am a senior at Washington University in St. Louis majoring in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. After graduation, I plan to work as a research assistant and to engage in clinical aid before applying to M.D./Ph.D. programs and have been tutoring since I was a senior in high school. As a tutor, I hope to create a warm, open and inclusive space that empowers my students to engage in their coursework and to feel confident in their abilities to problem solve and to succeed.

Though I am still an undergrad, I feel that I can provide a level of instruction akin to that of undergraduate teaching assistants and in a manner that is more relatable to a student close in age. With a busy college schedule myself (but always flexible for my students, thank goodness for senior year), I know what it is like to feel drained and overwhelmed with school. I want my students to feel validated in this space and to know that there's nothing wrong with feeling stuck, or in a funk. Motivation can wax and wane with everything going on in a student's life, and I hope to provide that push and to sit and listen to guide the student back to a place where they feel authentically propelled to do their best.

As a college application essay consultant, I hope to provide a unique perspective as a student admitted to a rigorous university from an academically weak high school. This motivated me to seek resources and guidance on my own, and I feel that these qualities will help me to guide students to craft a narrative that feels genuine and exceptional :)
