I am a Columbia University graduate with BA in neuroscience as well as a concentration in Premed. I have extensive knowledge of biology, psychology, and anatomy and physiology as well as some math. Additionally, I have excellent written and oral skills and could be of great assistance for anyone that needs tutoring in all aspects of English and writing. I am currently a stem cell researcher with a passion for education and science. I have several years of experience tutoring students of all ages levels, from elementary to college. My tutoring method includes closely examining a students strengths and weaknesses, then developing an organized target plan that will help the student make progress after each session, as well as practice problems/worksheets to do on one's own. I am patient and skilled at explaining things in a simplified manner and like to track a students progress as we go to ensure that my methods are indeed working and the student is retaining information or improving their skills. Please inquire if my tutoring skills and qualifications meet your needs.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

College Counseling

I work in the science field and have helped many students write and edit college and graduate school admissions essays for various fields including both science/medicine. My approach is to first work with a student to create an outline of the proposed essay topic/question, then expand upon the bullet points of the outline to develop the paragraphs of the essay. Lastly, I like to thoroughly work with the student to proofread and edit the essay and ensure that it flows and their main points come across effectively.
