I am a sophomore at Vanderbilt University, working towards a Bachelor's degree in Neuroscience with intended minors in Chemistry, South Asian Language and Culture, and Medicine, Health, and Society. Since high school, I have been heavily invested in STEM tutoring at local Boys and Girls clubs. Throughout my first year at Vanderbilt, I remained involved in the tutoring scene via a reading enrichment program (Page by Page) for local elementary students and a neuroscience education program (InterAxon) for middle school students for which I was the curriculum coordinator. Since the quarantine in response to COVID-19 was issued across the US, I have strived to continue my volunteering efforts through EduMate NYC, a non-profit tutoring organization which focuses on providing academic support to K-12 students in the NYC area who are from low-income and/or minority backgrounds. I currently volunteer for the organization as a tutor and Equity and Accessibility Coordinator. I strongly believe that every student deserves equal and fair access to educational support systems, and I constantly strive to make this possible. Education is critical in the making of successful leaders in this world, and I have been wholeheartedly committed to making this education both enriched and accessible. While I tutor a very broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about math and science. Furthermore, guiding struggling students through the daunting examination that is standardized testing is something I find fulfilling. In my tutoring experience, I have found that we make significant tangible improvements while gaining skills that can be applied in other courses and the real world.
