I am a stem cell biologist studying for my undergraduate degree at Harvard University. I love to teach and am particularly fond of helping students prepare for the SATs. The test may seem intimidating, but with the right study habits it can be a great experience.
I am also a long-time percussionist who currently plays for the Harvard Wind Ensemble, and I love to share my passion for percussion with those willing to listen.
I have always believed that the best way to learn is by doing, and thus my teaching method involves allowing the student to take on practice problems that test their conceptual understandings. I look for patterns in how they handle these questions and then suggest ways that they can better or more efficiently take on the type of problem in question. I am especially focused on teaching test-taking techniques, because I know firsthand how even the most understanding students can be lead astray by a tricky question.
I have taken the ACT and received a Reading score of 35. I know what the test is like and can help teach study strategies that can prepare one for the types of questions they like to ask while also developing general reading skills.
I have taken the ACT and received a Science score of 33. I am familiar with the wide wide range of fields they test on the ACT and can help teach scientific thinking skills that will help with this portion of the exam.
I have been a percussionist for approximately 11 years. I am proficient in drums, timpani, piano, guitar, and mallet percussion. I currently perform with the Harvard Wind Ensemble, where I play a combination of the instruments listed above.
I have played tennis for approximately 10 years. I was the captain of my high school tennis team and played the second singles position my senior year. I had played three years of doubles before that, so I know both styles very well. I have received recognition as team MVP and as an All-Conference Player for Nassau County.
