I am a biochemistry major at Columbia University in New York City. My love for the sciences began from a fascination with pharmacology and physiology, and ever since, I've developed a strong passion for all the processes that accompany these topics. As such, my expertise is not limited to solely biology and chemistry, but the other subjects that contribute to a holistic understanding of biochemical processes, such as calculus and physics.
I love helping others not only comprehend science and math subjects, but to develop an appreciation and deeply intuitive understanding for these subjects we unknowingly encounter on a daily basis. Despite popular opinion, I don't believe rote memorization is the only way to learn STEM subjects; in fact, I believe it's a rather ineffective approach. My approach to teaching biology, math, chemistry, and organic chemistry has always involved helping individuals discover their own intuitive methodology with learning these often intimidating subjects. Additionally, I love giving advice to maximize efficiency with learning.
A little bit about me: I'm originally from Pakistan, but I was born and raised in the US. Before COVID, I was working as a fashion model and got to live in Australia for 3 years, and then in between London and Berlin for a year after. Besides tutoring, I work as an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician).
Currently, I'm primarily looking for college and high-school students wanting to learn/strengthen their skills in organic chemistry and calculus.

In my free time, I do all sorts of things to keep myself busy. I play the violin, cello, and piano, and I enjoy painting. I love running (I'm a long distance runner, and this past summer, I trained for and ran a marathon), and of course, I watch Netflix on days I don't feel like doing anything. I also love learning new languages— currently, my efforts are focused on learning German!
