Hi there! I studied molecular biology at Princeton University and graduated in 2012. I spent the year after graduation living in Denver and working as a full-time math tutor at a high school in Denver's far northeast region, where I tutored two 9th graders at a time for 6 periods a day. My job was to work on getting those kids caught up to where they should be! Outside of my job at the school, I also did outside tutoring for algebra, MCAT, and most of all SAT and ACT. My proudest feat was helping a student improve his SAT score by 120 points after only 11 days of tutoring! He also ended up getting a 32 on the ACT! I also have tutoring experience from a summer internship in 2009, which had me living in India for 2 months and tutoring middle school math to a handful of girls every morning.

Standardized testing is my "thing" - what I truly excel at. In high school, I got a 2400 (800M/800V/800W) on the SAT, 800 on the SAT Subject Test for Chemistry, 800 on the SAT Subject Test for Math, 780 on the SAT Subject Test for Biology, and a 238 on the PSAT. More recently, I earned a 39 (14PS/11VR/14BS) on the MCAT in 2012.

What I've learned from my tutoring experiences (and also from being tutored) is that flexibility is paramount. Our minds work in different ways, and just because a strategy works for one person doesn't mean it will work for another. When I have received tutoring from professional organizations like Kaplan and Princeton Review in the past, I disliked the attempts to give everyone one blanket strategy. Tutoring an individual allows more flexibility because strategies can be tailored to that person's strengths and weaknesses. I really hope I can help!
