I recently graduated with a B.A in Italian from Stony Brook University. While there, I also studied chemistry and pre-medical studies. I am now getting my MS in Biomedical Sciences at Rutgers University while applying to medical school. I have taken both the GRE and the MCAT and have scored highly on both, specifically in the Verbal Sections and would be happy to tutor anyone who is struggling with the verbal section of any standardized test.
I am fluent in Italian and have been studying the language and culture for eight years now. After receiving a perfect score on the Italian Regents in High School, I decided to pursue a degree in the study of Italian language and culture. I lived in Italy and attended LUMSA University for 5 months in Rome as a foreign exchange student. I was the only American student in the entire Italian speaking school and was fully immersed in the language and culture. I can tutor in speaking, writing, or reading in Italian. I have written plenty of in depth poetry analyses and political term papers in Italian, so I am able to tutor in both linguistic and cultural topics.
At a college level, I have assisted in teaching math, chemistry, technology, and research courses at Stony Brook University.
At a high school level, I have assisted in teaching a course for high school students with interests in pursuing medical and health careers.
At the elementary level, I was a teacher's assistant at Brookhaven's National Lab for elementary science laboratory classes. I have also tutored at a private elementary and middle school in New York in English, Math, and Science.
As someone who studied a wide variety of subjects, and is currently pursuing a medical degree, I have developed various study habits, including organizational skills, to help me reach my goals. I would be happy to share them with anyone else who has similar goals, such as a career in medicine. I have also taken a time management course that has taught me how to devote enough time to studying while living a balanced lifestyle.
