I am a graduate of Northeastern University located in Boston, Massachusetts. I received my Bachelor of Science Biochemistry with a focus on pre-medical studies. I had the chance to work as a Teacher's Assistant (TA) for my entire senior year. I had the opportunity to run five lab sections of General Biology 1 at Northeastern University. I was given a lot of responsibility as I was the only instructor in the room during the labs and in charge of teaching the experiments to 30 students at a time, providing a brief lesson related to the experiment, demonstrating, and guiding the students through the experiments, grading all lab reports, creating and grading all pre- and post-lab quizzes, and holding office hours to tutor students who were struggling. This role single-handedly sparked my passion for teaching and tutoring!
After graduating, I worked as a clinical research assistant in the Integrative Rheumatology and Orthopedic Center at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. After working in this role for two years after graduation, I entered medical school at Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, an MD program in Camden, New Jersey.
Since beginning medical school, I have become extensively involved in teaching and mentorship programs for the local youth of the underserved Camden area. I also currently work as a self-employed tutor, and I currently work with additional private clients of all ages. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about Human Biology, Genetics, Anatomy, and Physiology.
I believe in making every experience a learning experience, and my passion is to give my students the confidence and skills to tackle difficult material. I have a holistic approach, using multiple methods of teaching, including visual aids, mnemonics, memory hooks, videos, practice questions, and even having the student repeat back to me the material he or she has just learned. As a future physician, I try to focus on the real-life relevance of all the material we learn, and always bring the textbook material to situations outside the classroom. As someone who is a non-traditional learner, I exercise patience, understanding, flexibility to accommodate each student's individual learning style. As a wellness and mental-health advocate, try to understand the student's headspace, as I understand how stressful and high-pressure school can be. During my sessions, I will always make time for teaching mindfulness exercises and test-taking anxiety mitigation tips to help my students succeed in all realms of education!
In my spare time, I enjoy, pilates, running, field hockey, and traveling the world!
