As a Master's student earning a degree in Physiology and Biophysics, I have an advanced understanding of multiple forms of Biology through the college level. As a pre-medicine graduate, I can teach Math up to a Pre-Calculus mastery, statistics to an AP Statistics level, and English up to an AP Language level. I am also experienced in college counseling and essay writing, and have advised many applications successfully. I bring a diversity of experience to the table, and am extremely patient with my students. I have multiple years of tutoring experience and know how to explain concepts in an easy to understand manner. I teach for mastery, not surface level understanding. I ensure all my students walk away with a full understanding of the content.

Teaching is the most beautiful form of knowledge exchange. It is a way for the teacher to reinforce their mastery of what they know, and to pass on priceless knowledge to the future leaders of tomorrow. I see no better way of making the world a better place than by passing down knowledge this way.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I will usually ask students to show me how much they know with the topic they need help on. I observe a student's analytical process as they solve problems/answer questions. After observing a few iterations of this, I will ask pointed questions about the material to the student. Based on this, I can gauge where a student needs to start working. Not all students are created equal. Different students require different teaching styles, and so I cater my teaching to the individual. For more visual-based learners, I'm happy to draw diagrams and use visual aids to guide them to understanding. For more reasoning based students, I like to use analogies and metaphors to explain concepts. Practice and study time makes perfect, so I ensure that a student is assigned work to do before our next session, so they retain and master what we discussed. I also believe in active engagement, and am happy to text or call with a student even in off hours to clarify small concepts and answer questions.
