Current Occupation: Medical Student
Undergraduate: B.S. Biology, B.A. Chemistry, Brooklyn College '19
Graduate: Master of Public Health, University of Pennsylvania '21
Years experience: 10
Subjects tutored: elementary math, algebra 1/2, trigonometry, calculus, biology, chemistry, physics, molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, SAT/ACT prep, MCAT prep, reading/writing, essay editing, etc.
I hope, during my tutoring session, not only to help the student with their areas of concern but also to instill confidence and help them develop a passion for learning and understanding, no matter what the subject may be.
I think that some of the most talents students develop their passions through struggling, and then finding the beauty of that struggle when they finally change their way of thinking in order to see new aspects of the same things. See that realization, that light-bulb go off -- that is why I love to teach.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
For new students, I like to set-up a phone call just to get to know the needs and personal interests of the student. After learning a bit about each other and making sure we are a good fit, we can move onto planning a session together!
