About Sunke

I graduated from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ in 2011, and majored in Biological Sciences and double minored in religion and psychology. I then attended the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey Graduate School of biomedical sciences (UMDNJ-GSBS) - which is now called RowanGSBS. As a graduate student, I took medical school level classes and did research under Dr. Venkat Venkataraman. My research revolved under calcium-sensor proteins called Hippocalcin and Neurocalcin delta. These proteins have a vital role in Alzheimer's disease, cell-signalling, circadian rhythm and cell death. I graduated from RowanGSBS with a M.S in Biological Sciences in 2015, and am now a full-time Medical Student at Rowan School of Osteopathic Medicine in Stratford, NJ. I hope to see myself as an Orthopedic Surgeon for the Indianapolis Colts (my dream job) one day!

As a student, learning is a skill-set that we need to master. Understanding the material rather than rote memorization has been the key for me. Understanding concepts takes a lot of patience, time and repetition,and often it is this that I hope to help my tutees in. By understanding something - especially the basics, we could implement what we learnt in more advanced classes - in turn making them easier. I will strive to help my tutees understand vital concepts, and for material that requires rote memorization, I will give them mnemonics and easy ways to remember material that I have either found really helpful or have made up myself.

While in GSBS, I reviewed my material by teaching my fellow classmates, and to really drive home the point, made up pathologies, questions and other scenarios to see what these changes do. This is part of the applying and understanding process that I believe in. Sometimes material presented one way could be confusing and difficult. As a student, I found that presenting the same exact material in another way could "click" and found that to be true multiple times. This is also happens to be what I strive to achieve for my tutees.

Graduated from the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at UMDNJ (Taking medical school classes) with a 3.79/4.00 GPA

Scored in the 90th percentile on the MCAT and have been accepted into medical school in the United States.

I love it when my fellow classmates have that "OH!" moment, and find great satisfaction when something that they find difficult, suddenly appears possible. I have had many mentors towards my journey to medical school, and I would also be more than happy to be that mentor to you, and will be willing to provide any suggestions, advice or help in the medical school application process for all my pre-med tutees!

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.
