Hi! My name is Gail. In 2011, I graduated with honors from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature. Toward the end of my college years, through a series of self-realizations, I came to realize that I would be most happy pursuing a career in medicine. So, I began a post-baccalaureate premedical program at Dominican University where I was granted a Bachelor of Medical Science this past May. Now, I'm applying to medical school and looking forward to becoming a physician!
With a background in English literature and writing, along with more recent (and successful) coursework in premedical studies (college-level math, chemistry, biology, physics and organic chemistry), I am well-equipped to tutor students in a multitude of subject areas. This past year, I tutored college students in general chemistry. This year, I will be continuing to do some tutoring at a university in general chemistry and organic chemistry. Additionally, I worked as an Americorps member at an organization called Schools of Hope, where I prepared children for kindergarten by fine-tuning their math and literacy skills. In order to participate in this program, I underwent an intense training curriculum which taught me many fundamentals of teaching. I also have experience working with and teaching children and adolescents with special needs, as well as students where English is their second language.
Most importantly, I have a strong passion for learning. As an aspiring physician, I recognize the value of constant learning and relearning, as well as teaching those concepts which have been mastered. I am incredibly patient and compassionate, and I fully relate to the challenges that can accompany learning experiences. It is my hope that I can work with students as much as possible, go through problems that they may find challenging and find several different ways to convey the material. I believe that with hard work, dedication and patience, anyone can overcome various challenges of academia.
I look forward to getting to know you! Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
