My name is Prianka R., and I am currently enrolled in Northwestern University in the Honors Program in Medical Education. The Honors Program in Medical Education is a BS-MD program which promises matriculation into Northwestern's Feinberg Medical School upon completion of a bachelor's degree in three years of undergrad at Northwestern. During undergrad, I am completing all the usual pre-med requirements, as a well as pursuing a major in Human Communication Sciences and a minor in business.
I was involved in a lot while in high school and so far in undergrad. Some of these include University of Michigan Summer Science Academy Program in the summer of 2010, employment at Pain Management and Rehab Associates Neurological Practice during my senior year of high school, a summer internship at SBS Healthcare in summer of 2009, a volunteer position at Clare Bridge Center for Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care from freshman year to junior year, volunteering and shadowing at the Neighborhood Health Clinic, Women’s Health Advantage Practice, and Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne, IN. I also played the piano and flute, and participated in MSBOA throughout high school.
During high school I served as president of humanitarian club, managing editor of newspaper and yearbook, captain of the North Farmington tennis team, and vice president of National Honor Society.
I was also a national merit finalist, and AP Scholar with Honors, four year recipient of the 4.0 honor roll, recipient of the Raider Pin Award of Excellence, and Induction into the National Society of High School Scholars.
As a tutor I have about two years of experience--I have tutored since the completion of my own standardized tests. Prior to taking my exams, I was enrolled in several different courses which allowed to me to develop several strong techniques and approaches to standardized test taking. I often stress the importance of practice and diligence, but most importantly smart test-taking. When I was studying for my own exams, I found some key strategies to becoming a more efficient and accurate test-taker, particularly in ACT science and reading, both of which I struggled with at first. These techniques have helped many of my students thus far, and hopefully they can help you too.
