I am a recent graduate of a master's program in public health concentrating in the biomedical sciences. I have a broad background in biology and chemistry based on coursework and research. I also have training and research experience in statistics, epidemiology, and geography. At a graduate level, I have conducted research both in a laboratory setting and outside of the laboratory, using statistical and geographical methods.
From my own education as well as my teaching experience, I am intimately familiar with the learning process and I know how to help students efficiently work towards their goals.
I have worked extensively with children in this age group. For example, I tutored 5th graders in math and reading for one semester. I classroom-taught 2nd graders reading, geography, and math for one month during an internship abroad. I also worked as a camp counselor/instructor with k-6 children for one summer, teaching everything from arts and crafts, to canoeing, to writing.
I am fluent in Persian, speaking, reading, and writing as a result of my Iranian heritage and frequent travels to Iran. In addition, I have studied Persian Literature. I was a student for one year at the Persian Language and Literature Institute of the University of Tehran.
I took the Regents as a public school student. In addition to continuing my studies to the graduate level in many of the regents subjects, I have tutored a high school sophomore in Regents algebra, geometry, and trigonometry.
I played club and school soccer from 6 years of age through the end of high school, and have regularly played recreationally ever since.
I studied for the MCAT exam twice, once independently and once through Kaplan. I have applied study skills that I learned in that process to my graduate studies and now regularly score highest in the class on exams. In addition, I have developed strong study skills through 5 years of higher education in challenging subjects.
