I am a professional life science researcher and graduate of Brandeis University, where I earned both my masters and bachelors in biochemistry. I'm passionate about science, discovery, and teaching, which is why I am pursuing both research and tutoring. I am also an avid reader, writer, and learner.

I have over 5 years of experience working with students from the junior high to collegiate level and would love to use my experience and expertise to help students master new concepts and skills. I would characterize my tutoring style as positive and persistent, but above all, I like to tailor my approach to best suit the needs and learning style of each individual student.

My specialties are test prep (AP/SAT/ACT/SSAT) and science subjects, including biology, chemistry, and physics. I am also experienced with tutoring US and world history, literature and composition, and general essay writing.

Looking forward to meeting new students!
