While pursuing my undergraduate degree, my interest for the biological and health sciences flourished and after graduating I decided to conduct a pilot project on potential bio-activation methods to reduce implant failure and peri-implantitis on different biomaterials.

Hello, I'm Felisha! I graduated from the University of Toronto with an honours Bachelor of Science, majoring in Biology and World Religions. While pursuing my undergraduate degree, my interest for the biological and health sciences flourished and after graduating I decided to conduct a pilot project on potential bio-activation methods to reduce implant failure and peri-implantitis on different biomaterials. I conducted my research at the University at Buffalo where I graduated with a Master's degree in Biological Sciences. After, I decided to work towards becoming a Doctor of Dental Surgery at NYU College of Dentistry. With that being said, it is apparent that I love learning, but I also love teaching!

I have 10 years of experience tutoring many subjects from grades 1-12, such as AP English, history, French, math, calculus, general sciences, AP biology and AP chemistry. I also have 4 years of experience tutoring DAT preparation and graduate level biological sciences, especially biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, bacteriology, signal transduction and research methods. Finally, I have experience tutoring in dentistry such as histology, craniofacial biology, anatomy, physiology, pathology, infectious disease, dental anatomy and occlusion and more! I have held both group and one-on-one tutoring sessions. I try to introduce topics in a fun and integrative way. I work through relevant examples with my students and always provide some time at the end of each session for students to practice and any additional questions. After the lesson, I ensure that my students have practiced the material we covered in the previous lesson. I also provide students the opportunity to compile a list of questions or concepts they would like to cover and share that with me prior to the lesson. However, I always tailor each session to the individual needs of the student.

I am dedicated to helping the students I work with reach a higher academic potential, expand their skillset, study strategically and gain useful knowledge. I try t

Career Development

As a professional development mentor, I am your consultant, counsellor and cheerleader! I have 4+ years of professional experience in a team-lead role where I would manage goal setting, continuing education, time management and more for a large department in a healthcare facility. After completing my Master's thesis, I began to mentor others on how to develop a thesis plan, thesis proposals, professional writing, literature research, experimental techniques, editing and time management. I am currently a career/academic mentor and admissions liaison at NYU College of Dentistry. Here, I guide potential and incoming students on how to excel both academically and professionally.

Dentistry

I am a second-year dental student at NYU. I have been in high academic standing and tutor both D1 and D2 students on a variety on courses within the dentistry curriculum such as: dental anatomy, occlusion, craniofacial biology, pathology, physiology, single-tooth restoration and more. In addition, my Master's thesis was housed in UB's School of Dental Medicine where I conducted research on strategies to encourage osseointegration and reduce implant failure and peri-implantitis.
Genetics,

Genetics

While working towards obtaining my Honors Bachelor of Science I took many genetics courses such as introduction to genetics, human genetics, population genetics, gene expression and more. I began tutoring genetics during my undergraduate studies and continued to tutor advanced or graduate level genetics (advanced human genetics, advanced gene expression, cancer and gene expression, human genetic disease, etc.) during and after obtaining my Master's degree. Moreover, I have been tutoring courses within the dentistry curriculum - many of which integrate genetics and/or gene expression in the course.

MCAT

MCAT

I have been teaching MCAT preparation in biology and CARS for 3 years. The topics and concepts tested on the MCAT are similar to that of the DAT, on which I have scored within the 98-100th cumulative percentile. To continue, I graduated from my undergraduate studies with an Honors Double Major in Biology and Religious Studies & Writing. I took many courses in English, literature and Greek/Latin to further enhance my critical and analytical reading and writing skills. In addition, my graduate education had great emphasis on the biological sciences, research and literature review. Ultimately, I have a strong background in Biology and Critical Analysis and Reasoning.
