I graduated in May, 2020 with a Bachelors in Biomedical Engineering from the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Currently, I am pursuing my Masters in biomedical engineering and, come Fall 2021, will be starting my PhD in tissue engineering.
Although my degrees have heavily focused on math and science, I have always made sure to diversify my education and interests. I minored in history while getting my bachelors, and have extensive experience with art, writing, and history via projects, clubs, and personal pursuits. I have also spent an extensive period of time sharing my experiences with others.
Through a variety of clubs on campus, such as the engineering honors society and Healthy Heroes, I have tutored and taught college students, high school students, middle school students, and elementary age students in a variety of subjects. I also mentored a High Schooler for two summers in the biological laboratory that I previously worked in, and am currently mentoring five undergraduates in the lab that I am pursuing my masters in. I am comfortable tutoring in a variety of subjects and have experience in biology, math, history, and English.
I believe that to help a student succeed it is first essential to ensure that the student believes they can succeed. When tutoring my goal is to not only make sure that the student is comfortable with the material but to also ensure that the student believes that they are capable of learning said material and any material that may follow. Oftentimes, students assume that they are struggling simply because they are, "stupid" and are incapable of learning the material. I don't believe that is ever the case. I personally wrestled with this anxiety when I was in high school, and understand how essential it is for students to be aware of the fact that they can grow and improve even in subjects that they find, "Impossible". It is my goal to not only teach students, but to help them build confidence in their ability to learn.
