I am a fourth year DO/PhD Candidate at Rowan University. I played varsity soccer as a goalkeeper for TCNJ and obtained my degree in biology there. I was accepted into a seven-year dual degree program, whereby I separate my first two and last two years of medical school with a three year work towards a PhD. After second year of medical school and successfully passing the medical licensing exam, I entered into the graduate school to pursue a PhD in Cellular and Molecular Biology. My PhD thesis is focused on neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia, and the relationship that the blood-brain barrier plays in their mechanism and utility for diagnostic purposes. I have tutored over 500 hours of coursework to more than 200 medical students, graduate students, masters students, and undergraduates over the past few years.
My passion for tutoring comes from a compassion for learning. I understand the hard work that goes into the process of memorizing, understanding, and consolidating information needed to be successful in school. However, I have struggled many times to grasp class material myself, and those experiences have given me a good perspective on what it's like to be a frustrated student. More importantly, I was able to overcome my struggles by changing how I studied to be more efficient, and was able to excel. From my many hours and students as a tutor, I can account for and cater to different learning styles, which provides me with the tools to be a successful teacher.
I have excelled in undergraduate/medical/graduate courses such as mammalian physiology, biology (cellular and molecular), biochemistry, genetics, oncology, and neuroscience. I am very comfortable teaching each of these subjects, and have achieved many hours and successful students over the years.
I am very trustworthy and reliable as a student, teacher, and friend. I value my own time as well as that of others' with utmost importance. I understand the value of spending time to learn, but the key really becomes about efficiency. As a tutor, I intend to not just be able to successfully explicate the material, but to maximize and optimize the time that is devoted to studying by the student on their own, so that their own studying becomes more efficient and independent.

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.
