Hello! I recently graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Maryland and would like to use what I learned to help you succeed. I have a B.S. in Neurobiology & Physiology and plan to attend the Mount Sinai Medical School in the fall of 2013. While in college, I tutored high school and college students in various science courses. Last spring, I scored in the 98th percentile (37) on the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) with a 15/15 on the biological sciences section. In addition, I served as a teaching assistant for UMD's Academic Writing course for one year, in which I revised the curriculum, converted much of the class to an online setting, taught complete lesson plans, and worked one-on-one with students on all stages of the writing process (from outlining to proofreading). Now, I am excited to have the opportunity to share the knowledge and experience I have gained with eager students who seek it.
I believe tutoring consists of more than answering homework problems or fixing grammar mistakes. My true goal as a tutor is to give students the tools they need so that they could continue to succeed while on their own. In this approach, a tutoring session becomes much more collaborative and personalized. There is not one formula that makes up a successful session, so I work with my students to determine the most reasonable plan of action. After all, helping a student with homework problems is moot unless the student also understands how to apply the concepts discussed during an exam. Everyone has the potential to achieve greatness; my aim is to show you the path that leads there.
