I received my B.A. at Hartwick College, with a focus on biology, chemistry, and psychology. I have always loved and excelled in science, thus, after my freshman year, I was invited to tutor biology and chemistry. At first, I was tutoring introductory courses, but as I gained more experience I started teaching advanced courses such as organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, etc. As I continued my college career, I became interested in physics and psychology. I kept taking physics and psychology courses to satisfy my curiosity and even ended up writing a thesis in psychology. The school at the time lacked science tutors, thus I decided to add physics and psychology to my tutoring list. Senior year I was tutoring the majority of chemistry and biology courses offered by the school and 100 and 200 level physics and psychology courses. Currently, I am a regenerative and cancer cell biology master's student at Albany Medical College. I choose this program because it focuses on applying biochemistry, biology and chemistry principles to living systems.

I went to college with a dream of becoming a doctor and am still on the pre-med path. This summer I tackled the biggest enemy of a pre-med: the MCAT. Like every other pre-med, I was terrified of that exam and thought that I was not good enough to get a decent score. I was continuously discouraged as I felt that I was not improving my score. However, I employed various strategies and approaches to face the MCAT from new angles. As time passed I realized that 60% of the MCAT is test-taking strategies rather than background knowledge. With a new and correct mindset, I studied hard and finally mastered the science sections. I am excited to share my knowledge and teach others how to tackle the MCAT and move one step closer to their dream of becoming a doctor.
