Since graduating from Tufts University magna cum laude with a double major in music and biomedical engineering systems, I've been working at Massachusetts General Hospital as a research assistant in the Hand and Upper Extremity Service in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. I will be starting medical school this August.

I have an extensive background in science, math and music, and I have experience providing one-on-one help in multiple subjects of all these areas. I absolutely love teaching and have always striven to make teaching interactive, even in larger group settings. That means I will not only teach you, but also push you to teach me in order to ensure your comprehension of a subject. Together, we can identify problem areas, experiment with new study techniques, discuss larger concepts and brainstorm their applications, and work through assignments to improve your grades and test scores.

The best feeling is when something just "clicks" after struggling with the frustration of not grasping a concept or problem. Sometimes it takes a different perspective to get to that point, and that's what I'm here for. I'm determined to get you more "clicks" more often!

I have a flexible schedule and would love to work with you. Please contact me if you have any questions.

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.

Biology

I have a strong background in biology and have aced many courses from AP Biology in high school to upper level classes in college (such as physiology). In addition, I was a laboratory teaching assistant for a pre-medical biology class at Tufts. I also received a 12 on the biology section of the MCAT.

Composition (Music)

I have been composing all my life, but I have also had much formal training in composition, starting with AP music theory in high school. I then majored in music at Tufts University, and composition was a requirement for music theory, jazz theory, and jazz piano lessons.

MCAT

I took a Kaplan course in preparation for the MCAT and scored in the 90th percentile. Kaplan courses can be very helpful especially in terms of the sheer amount of practice materials they provide, but they are not tailored to an individual student's needs. We can improve your score by experimenting with various test-taking techniques to find what works best for you. I graduated from Tufts University in 2011 with a double major in music and biomedical engineering systems. I've been working at Massachusetts General Hospital as a research assistant in the Hand and Upper Extremity Service in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.

Organic Chemistry

I received an A in organic chemistry 1, organic chemistry 2, organic lab 1 and organic lab 2 at the University of Rochester in the summer of 2009. Of all the pre-med requirements, organic chemistry was my favorite!

Piano

I have been playing piano since I was seven-years-old. I was classically trained through high school, but I also enjoyed taking jazz piano lessons in college. I received an A for both semesters of jazz piano in college, which required performing for a panel of judges at the semester's culmination. I have composed my own songs as well. With an extensive background in music theory, I can also help you tackle this often confusing, but important component of learning how to play piano.

Sight Singing

I began sight singing in AP music theory in high school, and I used sight singing skills ever since to learn parts for the various music ensembles I've been in. Sight singing was a necessity to be a member of the Tufts University Chamber Singers select choir. In addition, I received an A- in an advanced music theory class that included an ear training lab, which also emphasized sight singing mastery.
