I started out as a tutor for ESL (English as a Second Language) students. As a non-native speaker of the English language I was able to appreciate how difficult it was for my students to learn and grasp information that was coming to them at a fast pace in the classroom setting. Later, I worked as a volunteer tutor for students with Learning Disabilities (LD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The two main points that have always stood out with my students every time we have done a one on one progress evaluation is that I am patient and able to break down information to their level of understanding. After graduating with an advanced Organic Chemistry degree I worked in the Pharmaceutical industry as a synthetic chemist and later decided to go back to school and obtain a medical degree. I am currently in the Atlanta area in the final stages of my medical education.
