I have always been described as a wonderful student. Throughout my younger years and into my medical school education, I have always excelled, graduating magna cum laude from my undergraduate school, winning various research awards, and gaining a residency position at a nationally acclaimed and ranked institution. I say this not to brag, but to link my success with my love of learning, which has fueled my success. I understand the level of time, dedication, and attention to detail required to fully master a subject, and I wish to transfer that to whomever I have the pleasure of teaching.
I spent many years of high school and college tutoring students for the SAT examination, as well as many siblings and family friends. I realize that such subjects require repetition and varied approaches, and I am willing to provide these during teaching sessions. I worked with children of all different backgrounds through tutoring programs provided by my high school, and participated in after school sessions to work with high school students in classes I had already taken.
I also have tutored in various biology and psychology college courses. During college, I worked with a tutoring program sponsored through my undergraduate school to mentor and tutor students applying to medical school. In particular, I enjoyed teaching biology and psychology because those subjects comprised my major and minor degrees, respectively. I always received favorable reviews and continued to tutor for the rest of my undergraduate career. During medical school, I did not let my interest in teaching lapse. I am currently enrolled in the Medical Education Curriculum, which instructs me on how to become a better educator, and I bring those skills to my tutoring sessions.
I also have experience coaching students with writing assignments, as I spent a year as a research assistant. During that year, I was placed as the head of a research section, and all research projects and proposals were proofread and approved by me before being submitted to a journal. I excelled in this position was awarded the annual research award from my institution.
I hold my students, as well as myself, to a high standard, because I know that any subject can be conquered with the right approach. I often ask for feedback and modify my tutoring methods based on the student’s progress.
My time is flexible. I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, but will work with you to schedule make up classes. I will travel to a common place that is comfortable for the student, or we can choose a local library.
Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you towards your goals!
