"Hi! My name is Melanie, I am a medical student at Tufts University School of Medicine, and recently completed my Master's degree in Medical Science at Boston University School of Medicine. I graduated from UCLA in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in psychobiology and neuroscience.

Between UCLA and graduate school, I worked as a behavioral therapist, employing the principles of applied behavioral analysis to help children with autism gain independence both at school and at home. This helped me develop a number of qualities which translate directly to tutoring, including patience, creativity, endurance and compassion. Furthermore, my research experience at the Diet, Stress and Health (DiSH) Lab at UCLA under Dr. Janet Tomiyama imparted a separate set of skills pertaining to the planning, executing and analysis of clinical research. In my final quarter at this lab, I presented at the UCLA Psychology Undergraduate Research Conference with the support of my graduate student mentor. I have a number of other clinical and research experiences which I would be happy to discuss at length with you.

I have tutored all ages (elementary school through adult) over the last five years in a wide variety of subjects, as well as MCAT prep. Beyond teaching content, I strive to teach the cognitive processes that will help students succeed for years to come. I love using mnemonics, word association and pop culture references to encourage long term retention of the material, and to create a stress-free learning environment. One of the most informative classes I took at UCLA focused on the psychology of learning and the most effective ways to study. By applying this knowledge to my tutoring sessions, I help my students optimize their time and create effective study habits.

In addition to my tutoring experience, I have excelled in a number of undergraduate and graduate level science courses including but not limited to: Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, General and Organic Chemistry, Physics, Physiology, Histology, Statistics, and Evo" less...
