I received a 36 on the ACT and a 1540 on the SAT, both scores being in the 99th percentile.
In AP Biology, AP Psychology, AP Microeconomics and Macroeconomics, AP Language & Composition and Literature & Composition, and AP Research I received a score of 5 on the AP...

I received a 36 on the ACT and a 1540 on the SAT, both scores being in the 99th percentile.
In AP Biology, AP Psychology, AP Microeconomics and Macroeconomics, AP Language & Composition and Literature & Composition, and AP Research I received a score of 5 on the AP Exams.
In AP Seminar and AP Environmental Science I received a score of 4 on the AP Exams.

I am currently a Learning Assistant for an introductory chemistry course at Penn State and am enrolled in a collegiate course about how to help teach and encourage teaching within STEM subjects.

I am an avid reader and knitter! I would absolutely be willing to teach any students how to knit, if they are interested. I'm very passionate about teaching and am willing to work patiently and consistently through any and all topics of difficulty a student may be struggling with.

Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions about my experiences, my teaching style, my schedule, or anything else that may come to mind. I look forward to working with you or your student in the near future.

College Counseling

College Counseling

I applied to over 10 colleges and received individual counseling from high school counselors on each of my essays and resumes that I chose to submit. I was accepted into, and decided to enroll in, a bs/md program in which I was granted not only admission to an undergraduate university but also conditional admittance to medical school so long as I maintain a certain GPA and receive a certain MCAT score. I will attend Penn State for three years to receive my undergraduate degree in pre-medicine and then attend Thomas Jefferson University to get my medical degree. I know the qualifications needed to get into not only undergraduate but also medical school programs as a result of this.
