Private tutor in Boston, MA
Indiana University, with High Distinction BS Biology (departmental honors), minors: chemistry, psychology BA Economics Emory University School of Medicine MD (May 2016)
After growing up in Indiana, I attended college at Indiana University on a research scholarship. While there, I earned a dual degree (BS and BA) in biology and economics, completed minors in chemistry and psychology, and submitted my honors thesis in the field of neuroscience. In order to pursue my many and varied interests, I decided medical school was the right path for continuing my education. Following college, I immediately moved to Atlanta where I began medical school at Emory University. So far, I have completed the first 3.5 years of my medical school training. This year, I am living and working in Boston to complete a research year before completing my medical education. Following medical school, I plan to apply to residency in neurosurgery. I have been fortunate enough to have teaching experiences in both a structured educational environment and through extensive one on one exposure through tutoring. While in college, I was an undergraduate teaching assistant for three genetics courses, a molecular biology course, and an introductory economics course. During these experiences, I led weekly or twice weekly sessions for 20-30 students to delve further into material introduced during lectures. I was also a recommended tutor by both the Department of Biology and Department of Economics at Indiana University. I tutored: biology, chemistry, physiology, economics, and calculus to several individuals over my 4 years in college. I have been tutoring the MCAT 15-20 hrs/week since arriving in Boston in June of 2014. I have developed a rigorous and proven method of raising scores for my students, whether they need help will all subjects or one specific subject. Specifically, I have worked extensively with many students who require assistance in their verbal reasoning section, with promising results. On my own MCAT in 2010, I received a score >90th percentile. While I enjoy tutoring many different subjects, I especially love tutoring in the sciences and economics. My first few years of medical school have allowed me a greater insight to the role anatomy, physiology, and biology play in the human body and emphasize my desire to share this knowledge. Economics has always been something I have enjoyed learning, teaching, and tutoring while allowing a stark contrast to my otherwise science-heavy days. I find that students of all levels may lose confidence when they require a tutor. When I start my sessions, I like to emphasize the knowledge that a student has already worked hard to obtain, and have them describe something new they learned during the last session. By celebrating these milestones, it becomes much easier for a student to realize that a tutor is simply there to help them best achieve what they are capable of.
