During my years in college i served as a mentor for a number of students. I spoke to incoming students and their families about the realities of being a student in college.
From this experience, I learned to present information clearly and succinctly, while leaving the ultimate decision in the hands of students themselves. I also mentored freshmen to help them study for classes, meet with professors, and become accustomed to college life in general. I developed strong relationships with these students and have continued to be a mentor for them as they have moved beyond their first year.
I worked as an after school program instructor at P.S. 11 for two years. During this time, I developed essential skills in how to communicate with students in K-6th grade. Moreover, my familiarity with helping students understand basic reading conventions and math concepts helped many students in my section improve in class according to their teachers.
Exam that covers four subjects in the sciences and verbal reasoning. Required for entrance into medical school. I have scored a 95th percentile score on the exam and thus, I am very well prepared to teach for it.
I graduated with honors in my chemistry major. In college, I also served as organic chemistry teaching assistant. In class recitation, I helped students understand concepts and assisted them with practice problems. My own learning experience in organic chemistry guided my approach to advising students. I stressed the importance of understanding basic principles. I encourage students to apply their knowledge in dynamic ways and I focus on making course content interesting and relevant. As a TA, I held review sessions and weekly independent office hours to answer questions and go over practice problems. Successfully working through material one-on-one or in small groups with students helped me become more patient, understanding, and supportive. I learned to place myself in the shoes of students to make sure I could help them.
I believe my proven experience in college regarding my science related academics make me an ideal candidate for tutoring the regents in all science subjects. I excelled in physics, chemistry, and biology in college. Completing research in a chemistry and biology laboratory has only further augmented my knowledge in these areas.
I graduated as the valedictorian of my class at Hunter College, which included almost 2000 students. In this process, I learned to discern between the best ways to use my time to learn material efficiently. This is a skill I am confident that I can also further develop in others.
