About Kaye

I am a medical school student at Tufts University School of Medicine. I received my BA in Public Health from UC Berkeley. My passion for public health has led me to volunteer in places such as Kenya, China, and Belize. During my undergraduate career, I founded the Pre-Medical APAMSA's Berkeley Chapter. Here, I created a mentoring program for hopeful pre-medical students and served as a mentor myself. Having recently undergone the medical school application and admissions process, I hope to share my insights and wisdom with students, helping them gain admission into medical school.

In addition to my work with pre-medical students, I have also tutored a variety of students. I have worked with high school students, helping them in their courses as well as counseling them on their college applications. I have extensive experience tutoring students from elementary school to college, in all types of courses. I believe that when you feel lost or overwhelmed in the classroom, the best way to get back on track is through 1-on-1 instruction. Sitting down with someone who knows the material, and comes to understand your own strengths and weaknesses is the most effective way to learn. When you receive customized feedback to each of your questions, the concepts will more easily come together. The students I have worked with not only found themselves able to stay afloat, but they came to grasp a deeper understanding and mastery of the subject.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

As a current medical school student, I have taken numerous biology classes. I scored a 5 on the AP Biology exam in high school , A's in my college biology courses, and continuing to do so in medical school. I have tutored peers and other students, helping them master the biological concepts by offering one-on-one individualized lesson plans.

MCAT

Having taken this strenuous exam myself, I know the difficulties that one encounters and am able to share advice and tips on how to best master this exam. I have tutored peers in the MCAT exam, helping them transform their lowest scoring section, whether it be the physical, biological, or verbal portion, into their highest scoring section. I offer one-on-one individualized lesson plans so that we can concentrate on the areas of the student's needs.

Writing

As a current medical school student, I have had to write many essays and papers - college admission essays, course papers, and medical school admission essays. These experiences have led me to realize what makes a good and coherent essay, and I have taken these lessons with me as I worked with peers and others students on their essay and writing skills. I help my students by editing their papers as necessary, crafting their paper into a persuasive and appealing essay.
