Hi there! My name is Sasha. I graduated from Rice University (14th in the nation!) with a Bachelor's degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and a minor in Poverty, Justice, and Human Capabilities. I also obtained my certificate in Spanish Language and Intercultural Communication. I am currently a second year medical student at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School.

During my gap year in between undergraduate and graduate school, I worked full-time as an English teacher at a high school where I worked in small groups of 3-6 students to better their writing and reading skills in preparation for the STAAR exam.

Throughout undergraduate, I took a wide variety of courses from the hard sciences to the humanities and foreign language. Prior to teaching full time at the secondary school level, I also worked with students in a variety of subjects spanning from AP biology to MCAT to English or college admission essays. I have experience in coaching one-on-one for ACT, AP, and MCAT after receiving top scores (ACT: 32, AP Scholar with Distinction with 4s and 5s on 8 exams, MCAT: 518 with a perfect score on the biology and biochemistry section). After taking these standardized exams and doing exceptionally well, I would love to share my tips and study strategies with others.

My teaching methods include setting targeted goals and creating detailed plans to reach them. Throughout the teaching process, I am most excited when students realize what they are capable of achieving and goals become reality. Additionally, I focus on motivating students by finding topics they think are interesting. In other words, I focus on building a learning environment and skill set where students can work towards and reach independency. If one method doesn't work, I'm great at adapting to find other research-based teaching methods for students.

If you are interested in setting up a detailed plan in school subject tutoring, college-admissions coaching, or standardized test preparation, please contact me and I'd be happy to h
