Bio

As a graduate with a B.S. in biology and an M.D., I know firsthand that hard work and dedication are the two main tenets of success and learning. Having also been a tutor for underprivileged kids in a quest to improve their severely inadequate literacy skills (through no fault of their own), I've seen these two tenets at work.

As a graduate with a B.S. in biology and an M.D., I know firsthand that hard work and dedication are the two main tenets of success and learning. Having also been a tutor for underprivileged kids in a quest to improve their severely inadequate literacy skills (through no fault of their own), I've seen these two tenets at work. I worked hard to devise personalized methods of teaching that kept students willing and eager to learn, and encouraged them to see their own potential. I saw continued and marked improvements, week after week, which was incredibly rewarding.

I specialize in teaching biology and English (literature, grammar, vocabulary, writing) for success in school or for standardized tests such as the SAT. One of my goals is to keep students engaged and challenged, but not overwhelmed. I try to assign "homework" that will help deepen the student's understanding of the subject and will both supplement and complement their schoolwork or other test prep activities.

I am generally flexible with cancellations, though I'd prefer 24 hours notice. If that is not possible and you absolutely must cancel at the last minute, we can schedule a makeup session for no extra charge.

I am also flexible with lesson locations. I am willing to travel anywhere that is convenient for the student: coffee shops, student's house, the library - whatever will ensure maximum productivity and effectiveness, as well as comfort.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to contact me any time, and I hope I can help you succeed in your endeavors!

English

Though I have a degree in Biology, I minored in English in college. English has always been a strong suit for me, as can be evidenced by my high scores in the Reading and Writing sections of the SAT, as well as the Critical Reading section of the MCAT. I tutored inner-city children in Philadelphia for two years to improve their reading and writing skills, and was able to see much improvement with each of my students. I tried to personalize my methods for each student, to enable them to channel their creative or analytical impulses into their learning.

I graduated with a B.S. in Biology from Villanova University, and also did graduate bio-medical coursework at UC Berkeley. I'm in the process of applying to medical school, so my educational background must speak for itself. When teaching biology, I try to break down concepts and processes as much as possible, utilizing animations and preparing PowerPoints that the student can use to supplement the studying they do in their own time. I try to relate concepts to real-world examples, and will have problem sets to exercise and gauge the student's knowledge of what they have learned.
