About Philie

I have two years of experience doing an afterschool science program called Science Pathfinders within the Mentoring in Medicine initiative. The Goal of Mentoring in Medicine is to provide a platform for competitiveness and readiness for undergraduate students in pursuit of a Medical Career. The Science Pathfinder division aims at providing a learning environment and exposure for students from Elementary, Middle school and High school so that they have the knowledge of scientific understanding in an engaging way and have the ability for further engagement with the student if he/she is interested in a career in the medical field.

Having been working with kids for a majority of the time in my 20’s I have been told one thing consistently that I talk to and treat every child and teen with equal respect as I do with any other person. I treat everyone with the respect that we all deserve, I take it a step further and care about the kids I work with.

I have a passion in working with kids with almost all of my activities, I am currently doing the Science Pathfinder program and volunteering my time on Sunday instructing kids in Queens marching percussions and we’re building a band. I have always been excited about science, math is the foundation of all the sciences and I have grown to appreciate the skills it can provide and how universal it can be applied. With my passion in building things with the youth I am in pursuit of a medical career as an emergency Pediatrician, so I want to continue the great experience I have with the youngest in our communities.

I have a year experience tutoring middle school and early high school students in mathematics. The main objective was on pre-algebra, solidifying the foundation to get into algebra and in algebra. I have worked with groups ranging from anywhere from five to a maximum of ten for any given session. The changing group sizes were a challenge to maintain on topic for the duration of the session however I have realized that rewarding engaged students with starbursts have proven to be quite effective.

I have consistently receive high marks for my chemistry course in Lehman College. I fell in love with the subject in my first time taking the course in college. I have experience with general chemistry and organic chemistry, what makes me great at helping my friends in class or when I assisted underclassmen would be my ability to describe what is happening visually.

I thoroughly enjoy helping anyone with a little push to understanding the material. As well as teaching from scratch a new subject or skill that they will utilize in school or the real world. You can contact me with any question you may have so we can setup a session!
