"How did you spend the last three summers of high school?" You will be asked this question either in the form of an essay prompt for college, during an admissions interview, or a job application. Is there a right or wrong answer? No. But are some answers better than others? You bet. In this four-part course, I will help students and families re-think how "free time" should be spent, come up with creative and unique ways to stand out amongst their peers, and go over practical steps in looking for and applying to summer internships and programs, among other topics. This seminar-style course is geared towards high-achieving high school students who simply want to climb higher through real-life examples, personal anecdotes, and practical lessons in professional development.
I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at Yale University. Hence, I can only tutor through virtual sessions.
I have experience teaching a range of personalities and grade levels. My specialties lie in the math and sciences since I have experience being a teaching assistant for calculus at the City College of NY and a departmental study group leader for quantum mechanics and thermodynamics in chemistry at the University of Michigan. With regard to my doctoral studies, I consider myself an interdisciplinary scientist who bridges the gaps between technology and basic science. I tend to incorporate this interdisciplinary mentality in the way I teach in order to help my students become well-rounded thinkers!
