About Me

I'm a 27 year old graduate of Columbia University, where I studied International Relations with a pre-medical concentration. Having taken a variety of courses and standardized tests, I'm intimately aware of what it takes to succeed in academic settings. I'm currently working towards a Master's Degree in Women & Gender Studies. Subsequently, I plan to apply to medical school.

Regarding tutoring, I have four years of experience and have several references. I've tutored all ages (elementary school students - graduate students) and specialize in math/science subjects. I also have achieved success with my students regarding the SAT, ACT, MCAT, GRE, and LSAT exams. My students have gone on to attend Ivy League undergraduate as well as graduate institutions.

As far as expectations, I expect my students to just try their hardest. I assign homework after every session and am big on giving and receiving feedback. It's important to me to that the student and/or parent is completely satisfied with my tutoring.

At the end of the day, my first priority are my students and ensuring that they understand and are comfortable with the material in question. Not only will this help with their overall self-esteem, but they'll be armed with the skills to tackle their academic obstacles.

While I do have a 36-hour cancellation policy, I offer makeup classes and try to be flexible.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you surpass your academic goals.
