I graduated from Stanford University in California in 2011. While at Stanford, I was a varsity swimmer for all 4 years. I competed on the national and international level. I am currently in grad school at Columbia, pursuing a MS in bioethics and applying to medical school.

I have experience coaching and teaching swim lessons with kids and adults of all ages. Additionally, while living in New York, I tutored students who attended some of the top prep schools in NYC, including Trinity and Collegiate. I also provided math enrichment for gifted elementary school students.

I enjoy working with students and helping them reach their academic potential.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I took Organic Chemistry at Columbia University while enrolled in a Post Baccalaureate Premedical Program. This past summer, I did research in Organic Chemistry at Columbia modeling atypical reactions.

Sociology

While getting my BA at Stanford in psychology, I decided to minor in sociology. I passed all of the classes in my sociology minor with a B+ or better. My sociology classes ranged from Sociology of Terrorism and Global Ethnic Conflict to Interpersonal Relations and the Urban Underclass.

Swimming

I was a competitive swimmer for 22 years. I competed on both the national and international level. I was a varsity swimmer for Stanford University for 4 years. I was an NCAA qualifier and competed at the 2008 Olympic Trials in the 1500 meter freestyle.
