Hello! I recently graduated with my PhD from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY in Biomedical Engineering. I also earned my B.S. from Rensselaer, graduating cum laude. I will starting as a postdoctoral fellow at UPenn in the fall, and am seeking summer tutoring opportunities. As a graduate student, I was a teaching assistant for two years for advanced engineering and biology courses, so I am proficient in breaking down difficult concepts for students to understand. I also tutored with Literacy Volunteers for Rensselaer County for over a year, helping adult students improve their basic mathematics and literacy skills.
Because of my background in Engineering, my favorite subject to tutor is mathematics - where in addition to helping students understand fundamental concepts, I will take students through practice problems to help them gain a practical mastery of the topic. I also have excellent writing skills, and am available for writing and reading comprehension tutoring. As a researcher, I am constantly writing publications and abstracts to disseminate my research findings to the scientific community. I also competed for and won the prestigious National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship in my second year of graduate school, where applications are primarily evaluated by three essays. In addition to mathematics and writing, I am also available for SAT and ACT math and verbal tutoring, as well as GRE tutoring.
