I graduated from Marquette University with a Bachelor's degree in economics. After completing my degree, I completed a two year teaching commitment with Teach for America, a competitive and prestigious teaching program that places members in high-need school districts throughout the nation. During my commitment, I taught secondary mathematics at an urban charter school in South Central Los Angeles. The classes I taught included algebra 1 and 2 (both honors and remedial), geometry, and per-calculus.
Upon completion of my commitment, I decided that I wished to pursue medical school. I moved to Boston, MA to complete my post-baccalaureate training at Harvard University. Here, I excelled in my pre-medical coursework and completed classes in physics, chemistry (general and organic), general biology, cell biology, biochemistry, anatomy & physiology, pathophysiology, and calculus I/II. Additionally, I completed this program while working full time in clinical research at Massachusetts General Hospital. In 2013, I took the MCAT and scored in the 92nd percentile.
My teaching experience combined with my extensive background in economics, mathematics, basic sciences, and MCAT test prep have helped me tutor students of various backgrounds. I have been successful in helping students prepare for the MCAT as well as medical school applications. I have experience tutoring students in need of remediation as well as advancement. I work very hard to ensure that my tutoring sessions are beneficial to the student.
