"I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Binghamton University (SUNY) in 2008 with a double degree in Linguistics (B.A.) and Neuroscience (B.S.). After working as a behavioral neuroscience research technician for about two years, I pursued a position in 2010 at Cornell University within their Behavioral and Evolutionary Neuroscience program. In short order, I moved to Tufts University Sackler School of Biomedical Sciences, where I completed a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, with a focus on behavioral pharmacology, inhibitory signaling, and reward mechanisms.

I have been tutoring within the sciences since my undergraduate years at Binghamton University. I have worked with students in a wide variety of classes, ranging from linguistics (anthropological and psycholinguistic) to the hard and soft sciences (including biology, general and organic chemistry, basic neuroscience, and experimental psychology).

My vast tutoring and teaching experience has focused predominantly on organic chemistry, where I have helped upwards of 400 students across a range of undergraduate programs and universities. I have worked within a wide expanse of teaching environments, from small group settings and classroom teaching (including lecture-based learning) to individualized, one-on-one sessions.

With an arsenal of old exams, pre-made practice exams, and enough sample problems to keep you occupied until retirement, I am determined to help each student achieve the best possible suite of study skills, conceptual mastery and critical thinking that will allow him/her to succeed." less...
