I am a seasoned professional science tutor and science teacher at graduate and high school levels

Methodology

I teach high school and graduate level courses by making the content pertinent to my students. All my student know how what I am teaching applies to them and the communities they live in. I make all my tutoring sessions and classroom lectures fun and exciting.

Background

My experience ranges from academic research scientist at a top-ten biomedical research institution to NYU and under-resourced schools in the NY/NJ area. While I have more experience teaching at the post-secondary level, for the last four years I have been teaching biology courses, physics and chemistry to under-served students in NY and NJ public schools and to graduate students at NYU's Tandon School of Engineering.
