I began my undergraduate education as an electrical engineering student where I founded a robotics organization known as the Engineering Design Team. I then transferred to physics to learn the fundamentals of engineering and did a brief internship with a subcontractor for The Department of Defense. It was at this point I decided to apply my love for science to promoting health and wellness, so I switched to the biological sciences, completed a major in Movement Science, and did additional study in Neuroscience. I received a graduate degree in Bio-Medical Sciences and co-authored two papers on muscle physiology prior to beginning medical school. I left medical school early but continue to develop an educational initiative which focuses on bringing obesity prevention counseling into medical practice.
Although I have been in multiple majors, the one thing that remained constant was my desire to teach. I was a tutor both on a volunteer and paid basis all throughout my college career in an assorted variety of science and math based subjects. During my graduate study I taught a course in aerobics and conditioning and also privately tutored MCAT preparation. I also gave a lecture to incoming medical and podiatry students on efficient study techniques at my former medical school.
The one thing I learned in all of my experience is that no job, no career, no dream, is outside of the reach of persistence and dedication. My approach to tutoring is to guide the student to develop their own system of learning. I lecture students with the intention of empowering them to become their own tutors and to evolve past the need for my services. I guide students to become more proficient at the process of learning itself. The skills I hope to impart will advance the student's ability to learn in all realms, beyond the subject matter we cover. There is nothing I enjoy more than watching a student become a master of their own learning.
