I'm a recent graduate of Rutgers University-New Brunswick on the pre-med track. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Biological Sciences with a Minor in International and Global Studies.
I understand the difficulties facing science/pre-health students. High school and college are hard enough, but having to excel in rigorous AP and upper-level college sciences can be stressful. I just graduated with highest distinction in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, so I understand how to best manage difficult coursework and stress. I also scored in the 91st percentile on the new MCAT, with my highest score in the MCAT Biology/Biochemistry section. I especially like teaching Biology and Biochemistry, with subareas like Genetics and Molecular Biology. With my knowledge and strategies in tackling this material, I feel I can help students no matter where their trouble lies. I've worked with young and special needs students learning Math and English at Kumon Math and Reading, as well as my local ESY program. I've also mentored high school students in my local health science magnet school on college readiness and study strategies.
I like to relate difficult concepts to analogies relevant to the real world, rather than focus on dry text in a book. This way, students can not only memorize but truly understand and learn. To teach is also to learn, so I'll definitely be learning a few things alongside the student!
