MIT student with 2.5 yrs computational biology research experience and 2 yrs tutoring experience offering math, chemistry, biology, and computer science lessons

Methodology

I prefer a very active and self-reflective teaching style. Students shouldn't just be given answers, but led along the logical steps that lead to the correct solution. I accomplish this through an effective combination of leading questions and communication of the basic information necessary to reach a solution. All this is done in a laid-back, conversational style—I'm here to help, not intimidate!

Background

I am a freshman at MIT majoring in Chemistry and Biology and minoring in Computer Science. Two years of (paid) experience tutoring 3rd-12th grade students on mathematics. I have extensive programming experience due to my two years working as a Staff Research Associate at the UCSD Skaggs School of Pharmacy on various computational biology research projects. I received 5s on all my AP exams (including but not limited to Biology, Environmental Science, Chemistry, Physics C Mechanics, Calculus AB & BC) and a 1590 on the SAT.
