I have lived in Philadelphia for my whole life and am currently a medical student at Jefferson. During my undergraduate years at La Salle University, I gained extensive tutoring experience. I started tutoring because I have always liked school and done well in it, so I wanted to help others to also succeed. I enjoy the challenge of having to approach a topic from different angles until a student understands. My favorite part of tutoring is helping students discover the tools they need to succeed on their own. I enjoy teaching them a skill and then watching them apply that skill to complete an assignment or do well on a test. I also like the moral support aspect of tutoring. I am not just there to explain a concept; I work with students to instill them with confidence. I like to view myself as a coach or a cheerleader. My job is not just to teach; it is to motivate. I have completed a lot of years of schooling (and still have a few to go), so I understand how stressful school can be and my goal as a tutor is to reduce that stress.
My tutoring experience began when I was in high school. I tutored a few elementary school students privately in math and reading and I peer tutored my fellow high school students in math, biology, and chemistry. In college, I was employed by La Salle to tutor students in algebra, calculus, various biology courses, general chemistry, and organic chemistry. I met with students one-on-one, sometimes on a weekly basis for a semester or just for 1-2 sessions to complete a specific assignment or answer specific questions before a test. I also led weekly group tutoring sessions in organic chemistry and biochemistry.
I completed a math minor in college and am comfortable tutoring all levels of math from elementary school to Calculus I.
I completed a biology major in college and am comfortable tutoring biology or chemistry students. As a medical student, I have a unique perspective on the importance of the applications of these subjects. I enjoy tutoring science students because I can very easily understand how they feel, having only been in their shoes a few years ago. I have experience tutoring most biology courses as well as general chemistry and organic chemistry.
Please contact me if you have any questions! I am willing to be very flexible with students and would love to hear from you if you're interested to see if we could be a good fit for each other!

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 have tutored both high school and college level algebra 1 and 2. I have worked privately with students one on one and I spent a summer working with students at La Salle University in an enrichment program.
I earned a score of a 5 on the AP Calculus AB exam in high school and I completed courses in Calculus II and III, Linear Algebra, and Differential Equations in college. I have experience tutoring college level calculus.
I took General Chemistry I and II and Organic Chemistry I and II in college and I have extensive experience tutoring both subjects. I have tutored chemistry students one-on-one as well as in group settings.
I took the MCAT two years ago and earned a score of 34. I am currently a medical student so I have clearly mastered the material tested on the MCAT. The MCAT's format has changed since I first took it, but I did take courses covered by the new required sections (psychology and biochemistry) while I was in college.
I have 3 years of experience tutoring microbiology at the college level. I specifically have worked with nursing students in the past.
I succeeded when I took organic chemistry, earning an A in both semesters of the course. For the two years after I took organic chemistry, I tutored students in the course. I met with 4-5 students one-on-one each week as well as led group tutoring sessions with 5-20 students in organic chemistry twice a week. Because I have so much experience tutoring the subject, I have developed several ways of approaching the difficult course, including various methods of studying. When I tutor organic chemistry students, I focus on them understanding the material, rather than simply memorizing equations.
