I'm a recent graduate of Columbia University and hold a MA in Statistics (2014) and a BA in Biochemistry (2012). I am currently a first year medical student in the UC Berkeley-UCSF Joint Medical Program. I've spent the last two years helping students part-time in NYC in subjects ranging from chemistry to SAT prep. As an undergraduate I TA'ed introductory physics for undergraduate engineering students.
My philosophy to tutoring and teaching is to emphasize problem-solving skills over rote memorization. I believe that teaching and reasoning through problems enables students to develop critical thinking skills that extend beyond the classroom. By learning multiple approaches to problems, one gains the knowledge base to master a particular subject, alongside creative and abstract reasoning skills that are essential to personal and intellectual growth.
I am available to help high school and undergraduate students in math (algebra, geometry, trig, pre-calc, SAT), statistics and probability, and general chemistry and physics.
