Columbia University (Hispanic Studies)
I'm a senior pre-medical student at Columbia University majoring in Hispanic Studies. I graduated high school at the Ramaz Upper School, where I took all honors courses and held leadership roles in extracurriculars such as the Pre-Med Club, the school science publication, and college bowI. I took 3 AP courses: Spanish language, Calculus BC, and Biology, earning 4’s and 5’s on all AP exams. I scored 2240/2400 on the SAT with a score breakdown of 760/800 Math, 690/800 Critical Reading, and 790/800 Writing. I also took SAT II’s in Spanish and Biology, scoring 730/800 and 740/800 respectively. At Columbia, I have a 3.6 overall GPA and I scored a 516/528 (95th percentile) on the new 2015 MCAT exam. I have 5 years of private tutoring experience, having started tutoring underclassmen during my senior year of high school. I also have 2 years of tutoring experience as a 6-week SAT course instructor. My strongest subjects to tutor are high school maths including geometry, algebra (I and II), pre-calculus, high school and college sciences including biology, chemistry, organic chemistry and physics as well as languages such as Spanish and Hebrew.
Professionally, I am passionate about clinical medicine, hoping to attend medical school after college and earn my M.D. I am also a polyglot, speaking multiple languages including Spanish, Hebrew, and Russian, which I hope will allow me to better serve the diverse NYC patient population as a physician. In addition to tutoring, I have volunteered at the Addicts Rehabilitation Center in Harlem, been an active member of Columbia AEPi’s Iota Chapter as well as Charles Drew Pre-medical Society, and performed with Sabor, Columbia’s Latino dance troupe. My hobbies include basketball, martial arts, and salsa dancing. I'm a senior pre-medical student at Columbia University majoring in Hispanic Studies.

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.
I am qualified to tutor organic chemistry, as I took Organic Chemistry I and II at Columbia and received grades of A- and A. I have assisted my peers in organic chemistry and improved their test scores. In addition, I scored in the 93rd percentile on the Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems (includes organic chemistry) section on the MCAT.
I have studied Spanish for seven years and have been tutoring it for five years. I scored a 5 on AP Spanish Language in high school and I major in Hispanic Studies at Columbia University. I can read, write, and speak fluently in Spanish, making me a good candidate for a Spanish tutor.
