I am a recent graduate of Princeton University, where I majored in Molecular Biology and received certificates in Global Health, Engineering Biology, and Quantitative and Computational Biology. Now, I am an MD/PhD candidate at the Perelman School of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania. I first began tutoring in 2010, when I helped my fellow classmates with chemistry, a subject that was considered very difficult in my school. By explaining difficult concepts in different ways, relating topics to real world applications, and helping my classmates solve practice problems, I realized just what a difference I could make in someone’s education. Since then, I have tutored students almost every year in a variety of subjects ranging from SAT preparation to biology, calculus, and organic chemistry. Although many of my clients worked with me as a private tutor, I also worked for the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning at Princeton (a space where students who had previously taken a course can tutor those currently taking that class) and a test preparation company. Through my additional roles as a teaching assistant for an undergraduate biology laboratory class and organic chemistry lab, I have learned teaching techniques that can help students master difficult concepts in the sciences. While my focus is tutoring high school math, biology, and chemistry, I have experience working with students on almost any subject. I believe that education not only opens many opportunities, but also helps students achieve a more meaningful life. Outside of my medical school coursework and research, I enjoy taking care of my pets (I have a tortoise and many fish), growing carnivorous plants and vegetables, learning foreign languages, and playing the piano. I hope that you will find working with me not only easy and rewarding, but also fun.

I understand that math can be difficult for many students. There are seemingly so many equations to memorize, with little or no connection between them. I will show you how to connect all the

I am a recent graduate of Princeton and a current medical student at the University of Pennsylvania. I have been tutoring the SAT for the past seven years, and have helped many students achieve the scores they needed to get into top colleges like Princeton, Columbia, MIT, and Stanford. I will walk you through tricky questions on the SAT and help you understand their grammatical basis.
