MD with 8 years of teaching experience offering group or individual tutoring on anatomy and physiology, cell biology, microbiology and genetics.

Methodology

My teaching method is a student-centered approach, focused on teaching students how to learn themselves and fostering curiosity and passion for the required subject, aiming to engender a problem solving mentality they can carry into the rest of their academic lives.
A typical student's journey starts with a meeting, with either the student or both them and their parents, where we discuss what their goals are for our time together, and assess where they are at and where they want to reach.

Background

I am an International medical graduate, with 8 years of teaching experience in classroom settings, individual tutoring and experiential learning, particularly interested in helping younger students get into STEM and older students succeed in their path to medical school. Fluent in English and Spanish.
