I have been involved with higher education for most of my adult life. I graduated VCU School of Medicine in 2009 with a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree. I previously graduated Georgetown University with a bachelor's degree in biology in 2002. I have had vast exposure to the academic world and am fully aware of what it takes to be successful in the academia. I can provide advisement to high school students seeking careers in medicine thanks to my experience from my role on the Georgetown University Alumni Admissions committee, where I interview high school students and help them make optimal choices for their educational futures. I am also well equipped to teach graduate level courses in most medical school or nursing school level classes, including biochemistry and physiology.
While my scientific skills are highly advanced, I am also documented to be an extremely effective writer. I was the recipient of a number of grant-based scholarships from VCU when I was there. I have also been measured in the top 1% of writing sample scores on the Medical College Admissions Test. I have been affiliated as an article reviewer for Medscape Reference.
Although I do have a proven academic record, I feel what may allow me to be the most effective as a tutor is my experience working directly with people on very difficult and emotionally taxing issues. I believe that effective tutoring also requires this sensitivity. Further, just as every patient is different, so is every client. My aim as a physician and an educator is to provide whatever is needed for a client’s success, whether that be a traditional approach or an innovative one.
My favored subjects include any of the sciences and most of the humanities. I have experience tutoring Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English, and Psychology. I am also versed in most mathematics through college level calculus.
