As a current PhD candidate in biomedical sciences at Columbia University, I have a profound appreciation for the critical role of quality, one-on-one teaching in promoting academic success and motivating a passion for learning. Through years of both formal and informal tutoring at the elementary, high school, and collegiate levels, I've had the opportunity to help a diverse group of students to achieve their academic goals and develop an interest in subjects such as math, science, and English.
I specialize in chemistry, biology, and nutrition, as well as in preparation for reading and writing portions of the SAT and GRE. When working with students, my teaching style is aimed at clarifying key ideas while promoting student confidence and interest. I keep students continuously engaged by using frequent questions and conceptual analogies to ensure understanding, but ultimately I allow students to arrive at solutions as independently as possible in order to build their confidence with the material.
I'm happy to travel anywhere in Manhattan and certain parts of Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx. I am also available for phone sessions or by email for additional questions. I'm fairly flexible with scheduling, although I do request at least 20 hours' notice for cancellation.
I welcome feedback both during and after each tutoring session, and I do not charge for a session unless both students and parents are satisfied.
I'm looking forward to working with you as you gain the skills and knowledge to achieve your goals, and I hope to hear from you soon!
