About Coby

I recently graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania with majors in Chemistry and in Classical Studies. Currently, I am working in translational research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) for my gap year before starting medical school in Fall 2017. After finishing medical school, I intend to pursue a career as a pediatric oncologist.

In my free time, some of my favorite things to do include watching films, learning word etymologies, following the Supreme Court, lifting weights, visiting museums that have ancient historical galleries, listening to folk songs, and reading classical literature.

In the past, I have tutored elementary school, middle school, and high school students in subjects ranging from reading and writing to math, chemistry, and physics. I have helped students prepare for many different NY State Regents Exams including Chemistry, Physics, Geometry, and Algebra 2/Trigonometry. I have also helped prepare students for different AP Exams and various SAT Subject Tests. Additionally, I regularly help high school students prepare for their SATs.

My teaching approach varies depending on the subject and the student. However, based on past experience, I have found it effective to spend as little time as possible on lecturing and as much time as possible doing actual practical exercises. For example, if I were tutoring a math or science subject, we would spend the majority of the session doing problems, and I would try to teach new concepts from each unique problem we do instead of teaching the concept first and then doing the problem. If I were tutoring writing, after spending time on some writing exercises, we would review any relevant grammatical, stylistic, or rhetorical concepts that may be relevant.

Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions at all. I look forward to hearing from you!
