Hi, I'm Alice! The two services I provide are tutoring and medical school admissions counseling, which consists of application advice, essay writing + personal statement feedback, and conducting mock interviews + feedback.

A little bit about me: I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology, and a minor in Philosophy. I am currently a 4th year MD/PhD student at the Icahn School of Medicine. I have completed the first two years of medical school and am currently in my second year of my PhD.

I have always loved helping students learn and figure out difficult concepts. My goal as a tutor is to help students find and develop confidence in their own ability to problem solve and understand difficult concepts.

I have tutored students for 4 years in General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Cell Biology. Additionally, I have 2 years of experience as a TA in Cell Biology and Biomedical Sciences for MD/PhDs (a first-year PhD course). I was responsible for creating and grading homework problem sets and for holding review sessions for the class (~12 students) to review the homework and clarify questions on difficult concepts before their exam.

The second service I provide is medical school admissions counseling and mock medical school interviews. I am a student interviewer at my program. I have been interviewing applicants for 2 years and have also participated in admissions committee meetings for 2 years. If you're interested in admissions/application advice, please feel free to reach out!

Alice took time to explain things clearly and she let me guide the lesson to benefit my needs. We went over questions and some pathways and she gave me tips on what to focus. I already set up another lesson with her!

Helped me to learn/realize the things I need to know even when they were difficult to hear, which was exactly the kind of help I needed! Would recommend and will likely come back for future questions in this area.
