I am a senior at The University of Chicago studying Biological Sciences and am currently in the medical school application process. I began tutoring elementary and high school students while I was in high school as a part of my school's National Honor Society chapter and I have pursued teaching opportunities ever since. At the University of Chicago I have been a Physiology teaching assistant for three years. I tutor all elementary subjects, high school subjects including advanced placement level courses and college level chemistry, biology, computer science, and English coursework. More specifically, I am highly qualified to tutor students in Algebra, Geometry, Statistics, Computer Science, Genetics, Molecular and Cell Biology, Developmental Biology, Physiology, Ecology and Evolution, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physics- mechanics, and literature and language courses including AP English Language, AP English literature, and college level literature courses.
I am the Editor and Chief of the University of Chicago's newspaper The Chicago Maroon and have extensive writing and editing experience; I am able to help students become better writers and communicators, including preparation for timed standardized testing (ACT and GRE). I hope to continue my education in medicine to serve urban underserved communities, like the Southside of Chicago where I currently live. As someone who started their journey in STEM feeling like they were not smart enough to become a doctor, educators have had an incredible role in my life, showing me that hard work beats talent every day. I hope to pass this on to my students, showing them that academic success starts with a winning mindset. I will prepare students by giving them both academic and mental preparation to feel confident and calm on test day.
Outside of my coursework, I am a varsity cross country and track athlete at the University of Chicago and absolutely love running on the lakefront every dayeven when the windchill is below 0 degrees. I am also an undergraduate researcher at University of Chicago Medicine, where I work on computational image pathology algorithms using deep learning and machine learning.
