I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a BS in Neuroscience and minors in Chemistry and History. I am currently applying to medical school and hope to matriculate during the summer of 2019. During my medical career, I hope to teach, in addition to practicing in a clinical setting, as I served as a TA and tutor for 3 years in college and get a lot of satisfaction out of helping students understand complex concepts. Although I have been successful in hard science classes throughout my education, I have struggled with the complex material and leaned on professors and peers to help me understand. Thus, I believe that in order to truly understand something it's natural to struggle, otherwise you are simply memorizing which isn't helpful in the long run. Because of this, I like to meet students where they are at and work with them to increase their understanding rather than lecturing at them. I do this by relating abstract concepts to real life application. Biology lends itself to this type of application, which is why it's my favorite subject to tutor. However, I also enjoy tutoring students in Biochemistry, Chemistry, and all sections of the MCAT, as I personally know how challenging and frustrating the exam can be. Outside of these life sciences, I also greatly enjoy helping students solve math problems. Outside of academia, I enjoy running, kayaking, biking, cooking, and spending time with my friends.
