Sophie Math And Science Tutoring
I am excited to help people understand topics that were challenging for them initially. I graduated from Convent of the Sacred Heart in NYC, and am currently enrolled at Vassar College, where I am intending to major in Neuroscience and Behavior. I am billingual and speak Enlgish and Russian. I have a 1570 on the SAT, receiving a 790 in math and a 780 in english. I have taken AP BC Calculus, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, Honors Physics, AP French, and have also worked for two summers as a research intern at Weill Cornell Medicine at the Mason Lab. In addition, I have already taken college level chemistry, Russian and biology classes at Vassar. Moreover, I am published in the Microbe Directory, and was also a member of my high school's math team.
I am fond of helping students comprehend material they are having trouble with. I have had some of the best education in the country, and I will use my past experiences with teachers and tutoring to help students learn. In addition, I often help my friends with their homework and answer their questions, fueling my passion for tutoring and helping me be a better teacher.
