EducationMedical Student at Yale School of Medicine
Graduated with a B.A. in Chemistry with Honors from Wellesley College, Summa Cum Laude, and nominated to Phi Beta Kappa and Sigma Xi.
GPA 3.95/4.00 and won five graduation awards, including the Katharine Malone Prize and Eleanor Webster Prize for Best Chemistry Thesis.
At Yale, I won a creative writing award and am involved with literary magazine. I also did well on standardized exams.
ExperienceI am currently a medical student at Yale School of Medicine. I have over 8 years of experience tutoring students on both a one-on-one basis and in a classroom setting. As a student myself who did not magically understand everything taught in school, I know what it's like to struggle to learn. Because of that, I can help students overcome obstacles and achieve academic success. I'm also always bright and cheerful, which has, in the past, helped me connect with my students.
I provide personalized, one-on-one tutoring in most subjects. In college, I happened to provide a lot of writing/composition tutoring and science tutoring.
I especially am helpful with strategy, planning, organization, and brainstorming for admissions, whether to college or medical school. I would love to help someone plan (and help edit) their personal statements, letter of recommendations to optimize the application, and practice for interviews. Being in medical school and applying into a competitive field really honed my skills in that aspect, so I am offering my consulting skills for applications.
My qualifications include:
- 3 years at the selective Wellesley College's Writing Tutor Center, including seminars monthly on tutoring English as Second Language students, grammar workshops, and writing/composition workshops.
- 2 years as the Designated Chemistry Tutor
- over 8 years of private tutoring for students ranging from middle school to college students
Bottom line is, I want to help students as much as I can. I would be happy to meet for a free consultation to see if I would be a good fit as a tutor.
My availability is a little old and depends on the month - I am rotating in the hospital in August and November 2016, so will have more limited times (usually on weekends) to tutor. Please contact me for more information if you are interested.
