My name is Hemad F. and I have lived in Virginia my whole life. Early in my childhood I showed an interest and aptitude toward the sciences, particularly biology, and decided to pursue a career which would allow me to gain both theoretical knowledge and application in biology. This lead me to attain dual degree from Virginia Tech in Biology and Human Nutrition Foods and Exercise in 2011 with a minor in Chemistry. After completing a graduate certificate in the Advanced Biomedical Sciences Program offered jointly by Georgetown University and George Mason University, I continued on to Georgetown where I am finishing up a Masters in Physiology and Biophysics. In the future I hope to become a dentist and provide relevant oral care to people in under-represented areas.
During my undergraduate studies I spent ample time tutoring the sciences to peers who found the material to be difficult and have learned that tutoring is more than just answering questions and repeating material which might have been provided in class. While I can effectively instruct and supplement areas that the tutee find difficult, I also emphasize critical thinking when approaching difficult subject matter. By illustrating to the tutee how to logically approach a problem or subject matter, the tutee will learn how to ask good questions and "connect the dots" of a particular science. I feel my ultimate goal is to have the tutee reach a point where he or she no longer needs a tutor. Above all else, I feel that this should be done in a patient, amicable, and interesting manner so that the tutee is always in a positive environment.
