About Weyni

Greetings!

My name is Weyni, and I am originally from Ethiopia, but moved to the U.S. five years ago to complete my Bachelor's degree. While I was still in Ethiopia, I attended schools that used English as their medium of instruction and were considered rigorous. I graduated from high school with a "Very Great Distinguish" honor, and scored in the top 5% on Ethiopia's college entrance exam. While I was in Ethiopia, I provided free tutoring lessons in Math, Chemistry, English, Physics and Biology to orphans who were between the ages of 10 and 19 years. This was one of the most enriching experiences I have had. After I moved to the U.S. to pursue my undergraduate degree at The College of Wooster, I took several advanced Life and Social Science classes such as Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Calculus, International Political Economy, Comparative Foreign Policy, etc. Upon The College of Wooster's Dean of Curriculum and Extracurricular Activities' recommendation, I served as a Writing Consultant at The College of Wooster for over three years, where I assisted students with prewriting, editing, proofreading, and citation. In addition, several of the college's professors invited me to their classes to lead writing-based discussions. While working as a Tutor, I had the opportunity to effectively assist over 700 domestic and international college students. As several of my students' had different level of English proficiency, including speaking, writing, and reading, I modified my tutoring techniques accordingly. I strongly believe that it is important to modify your tutoring techniques according to the needs of each student.

Thus far, I have completed three large research publications that investigate traditional medicinal practices, division of labor, and community eye-care outreach programs in India. Furthermore, I have worked as a Research Assistant at Pfizer Pharmaceutical where I collaborated with Pfizer's senior scientists on ongoing lab researches. These research experiences have allowed me to hone my critical thinking, qualitative & quantitative analysis, research and writing skills. I currently work as an Advisor at one of the UN Systems in NYC.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need further information. I am committed to ensuring that my students reach/realize their full potential. I look forward to working with more students in the near future.
