Bio

I graduated from Trinity College in Hartford, CT in 2016 with a major in Biochemistry and a minor in Arabic Language. At Trinity I was Vice President and President of the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) my junior and senior year, an RA for two years, a ruby player for two and a half years, and I did two years of clinical and laboratory research.

I graduated from Trinity College in Hartford, CT in 2016 with a major in Biochemistry and a minor in Arabic Language. At Trinity I was Vice President and President of the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) my junior and senior year, an RA for two years, a ruby player for two and a half years, and I did two years of clinical and laboratory research. I wanted to take a couple gap years before applying to medical school and I decided that teaching would be preferable to research. I have always had great teachers so I wanted to pay it forward and I come from a teaching background. I chose boarding school specifically because I didn't just want to teach; I wanted to teach and coach and advise in the dorm. I know that the more points of of interaction with students, the stronger our relationship will be and the better the students will do, so I enjoy working with adolescents. Finally, I have spent the last year at the University of Pennsylvania in the Graduate School of Education working towards my M.Ed. I understand the theory behind learning and I know how people learn best.

For the past three years I have taught Regular Chemistry and Honors Chemistry during the regular school year and.Literature, Biology, Chemistry, and now math during the summer. I have also tutored for the math section of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).

I spent the greater part of my early years avoiding science because I considered science to be my enemy. I understand that many people struggle with science--particularly physical sciences like Chemistry and Physics. I love helping students who don't necessarily consider themselves to be science-minded and I believe good educators should be able to explain things in a variety of ways. I truly love all things chemistry and I enjoy working with people in one-on-one settings.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule an lesson. I am easy to reach and you can expect a pretty quick response. Please understand that for travel purposes, I require a one hour notice of cancellation.

Very helpful!

Ashira really helped me with my orgo chem lab report. The whole lesson and experiment was a mess so Ashira was good at helping me organize everything and ultimately gave me a guide on how to solve the questions asked for the analysis of the report, including error analysis. Would recommend!
