I’m a strong, multidisciplinary student who recently received my master’s degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where I studied Biochemistry and Biophysics. I am currently preparing for medical school for admission in the Fall of 2014. I have an especially strong background in math and the sciences and I perform well on standardized tests, scoring in the top 10% or better on the SAT, SAT II (math, biology, and chemistry), and the MCATs as well as getting a 4 or 5 in English literature, chemistry, and calculus AP classes.
I have a great attitude and a passion for teaching. I have developed excellent teaching skills through many years of teaching as a ski instructor, a Boy Scout leader, and children’s camp outdoor skills program director. As a camp program director, I was responsible for developing lessons and managing staff, as well as measuring skill competency. As a molecular biology lab TA, I prepared presentations to teach complex concepts in new and interesting ways, measured student progress, and assisted them with learning a difficult subject while synthesizing large amounts of information.
I believe the 1 on 1 tutoring environment provides significant benefit for learning and test preparation. My goal is to work with students to develop a learning plan that meets the needs of the individual student. Study skills, time management, and planning are important concepts that I impart on all of my students, regardless of subject matter.
