I'm a freshman at the University of Rochester. I'm currently pursuing a Chemistry Major with a Minor in Biology and Music. I'm a graduate of the Albany Academy and am the Valedictorian of their 200th graduating class. I am a very hard worker and have found that through my years I work best with subjects I love. I excelled in Chemistry, Math, standardized tests and Trumpet. I sometimes found that by teaching others I was better able to understand the material myself. My friends often came to me with questions for tests or just basic material, so I have experience with tutoring. I am patient, thought out, and diligent. I will never give up until you have mastered a concept and think that through gentle encouragement and thorough explanation I can help you excel as I did in school.
In my application to college I studied for and achieved highly on the SATs and ACTs. Overall I scored a 34 out of 36 on my ACTs. I scored a 770 out of 800 on the SAT math, 790 out of 800 on the SAT Math 1 subject test, and 800 out of 800 on the SAT Chemistry subject test. I understand how these tests will ask you questions and believe that I can help to improve your scores with practice, tricks, and a strong thought process. In the end I committed to the University of Rochester for the class of 2017 and received a large scholarship for my academic achievement.
Besides being a good student, I am a good communicator and love to work with children and teenagers. I find helping people rewarding and hope that I can make a difference in their lives as others have done for me.
