Hello, I'm Greeshma! I am a medical student at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, with a summa cum laude degree in Neuroscience and Chemistry from UMiami.
I have been teaching/tutoring for over 4 years now in subjects such as mathematics (from Pre-algebra to Calculus 2), science (biology, chemistry, psychology, etc. from a middle school to senior undergraduate/MCAT level), English, and test prep (for PSAT/SAT/ACT/FSA and more). Apart from tutoring, I am also a science educator at Booker T. Washington High School, where I lead the general science curriculum for 9th-10th graders. I genuinely love teaching and I am passionate about helping others exceed their own academic goals!
Personally, I have graduated from UMiami undergraduate with a perfect 4.0 GPA, I graduated valedictorian of my IB high school with a 4.0 GPA, I have taken (and tutored) IBs/APs ranging from Chemistry to Calc BC to English, and I have scored 1560 on the SAT (with a perfect 800 on math). As a medical student with a Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience, I have experience with math/science/English/pre-med courses from a middle school to university level! I love teaching, and I would love to help you or your children succeed in school! 🙂
Since I started teaching, I have become very passionate about helping other students like me reach and exceed their goals. My favorite part of teaching is seeing the self-esteem and confidence boost throughout the journey!
