EducationNorthwestern University: Bachelors of Science in Biomedical Engineering
Feinberg School of Medicine: MD candidate, Class of 2016
ExperienceI am a second year medical student at Feinberg School of Medicine and recently graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in Biomedical Engineering. As you can surmise, my strengths lay in the math and sciences, and I look forward to sharing my knowledge--on the subjects, and on test taking strategies in general (because I've definitely taken my fair share of exams!)
I have experience tutoring math, science, ACT and SAT throughout my high school and undergraduate years through programs offered at my schools and I have learned many techniques for explaining tough concepts or finding individualized study strategies. In addition, I believe in teaching through prompting students with questions. By doing this, I want to teach my students how to think through problems independently and have confidence in their knowledge. But at the end of the day, my goal in teaching is to equip to students with the tools they need to conquer any question and/or problem so there or no surprises, just successes.
Another strength of mine is that I am personable and great at working with students of all ages. My most recent experience with teaching and mentoring was this past year at Feinberg School of Medicine; I was involved in coordinating a yearlong mentoring program called Camp Wildcat where medical students mentored students in the Chicago Youth Program (CYP) through events such as science fairs and a weekend-long camp filled with team building exercises.
I am located in Streeterville area and have access to quiet study areas in the Northwestern Medical and Law libraries. However, I will do my best to work with you with scheduling and location.
