Education

Aerospace Engineering @ Illinois Institute of Technology. After B.S. in Aerospace Engineering, I plan on getting M.D. & M.B.A.

Experience

I have a lot of experience in tutoring; since middle school, I've been tutoring troubled children (those who are at a risk of failing multiple classes, dyslexic, etc.) as well as advance students who want to move forward at an accelerated pace. I have also tutored some homeschooling students in all their subjects; I especially enjoyed this because I was home-schooled for part of my high school education. Test Scores: AP Biology (5), AP Calculus BC (5), AP Physics B (5), AP Environmental Science (5), AP US Government and Politics (5) SAT - 2390 MCAT (Medical School Admission Test) - 36 Relevant Classes I have taken: Middle & High School: Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Trig, Calculus (AP), Biology (AP), Chemistry, Physics (AP), Environmental Science (AP) College: General Requirement Classes: Calculus (up to Multivariate and Vector Calculus), Differential Equations, General Chemistry (1 & 2), Physics (1 & 2) Pre-Med Classes: Biology (Cell & Human), Organic Chemistry (1 & 2), Psychology Aerospace Classes: Statics, Dynamics, Material Science, Mechanics of Solids, Thermodynamics

Hobbies

I am interested in many things - I enjoy watching TV, reading, writing, and drawing. I am interested in entrepreneurship and in involving young girls in STEM fields. In my classes, I am one of the few girls; this is because initiatives have not been taken in fostering interested in engineering and science for female students. I am also involved in MEDLIFE - Medicine, Education, and Development for Low Income Families Everywhere. Every year, we send talented and deserving students on a medical brigade to a different country (Peru, Ecuador, Tanzania, etc.). As mentioned before, I am pursuing a M.B.A.; this is because I am an entrepreneur. I started my own web development company in high school, and I plan on doing a lot more! I am also an advocate of practical learning; I do not believe in studying to get a good grade - I believe in learning for understanding; once a person understands something, there is nothing stopping them from acing a test. I also believe in conducting experiments to complete the learning process.
