I am currently an undergraduate student at the University of Pittsburgh. I am majoring in Neuroscience and minoring in Political Science, and I am working down the pre-med track. I have experience teaching, as I am currently a teaching assistant for General Chemistry at Pitt and I have also tutored with Kumon Learning in the past. The areas that I am most passionate about tutoring are SAT prep and college-level courses. This is because I know how stressful these two can be to students. My goal is to try and alleviate some of that stress and make you feel prepared and confident for taking the SAT and passing college courses with flying colors. My belief is that for a person to live a rich life, they should be constantly learning about something new. It helps keeps your mind sharp throughout life, and helps you appreciate the world around you. This is a belief that I try to stress to everyone around me, including my students. In terms of my tutoring style, I try to build a rigid lesson plan for my students that will prepare them, but at the same time, not overwhelm them. I have found that organization and having a plan are keys to success in education.

I am interested in medicine, which is what I hope to base my career on. For example, I am an EMT and am currently doing research on multiple sclerosis, a neurodegenerative disease.
