Hello! I am currently in Naturopathic medical school in Tempe, studying to become a Naturopathic Doctor. Before this, I graduated from Syracuse University with a Bachelor's Degree in Biochemistry, and a minor in Psychology. During my time at Syracuse, I enjoyed tutoring Organic Chemistry for 2 years--and most importantly, my students claim that I actually taught them something! After I graduated from Syracuse, I continued to tutor Organic Chemistry, and began to teach Biochemistry. With e... [more]
As a Biochemistry major, it is absolutely crucial to have a 100% grasp of basic biology. I actually tutored biology in high school, incidentally.
I minored in Psychology, and find it to be highly intuitive. While I've never formally taught psychology, I have discussed it enough and taken enough courses to be able to tutor the subject.
I literally do not let my biochemistry textbook out of my sight. I consult it on a weekly basis, and use it as a platform for further investigation of new biochemical discoveries.
Not only is Genetics is a part of our curriculum in medical school, but we use genetic testing at the medical center on patients regularly, if warranted. I?ve taken basic-moderately advanced genetics courses throughout undergrad and in medical school, and feel comfortable explaining anything from simple Mendelian genetics to modern epigenetics.
I have been tutoring organic chemistry for two years at Syracuse University with much success. It is my favorite subject, and my students tell me that my passion about organic molecules resonates within my teaching methods, and rubs off on them from time to time.
Naturopathic medicine is fundamentally based upon proper nutrition and lifestyle, and I personally believe in nutrition being the foundation for health. Not only do we learn nutrition in extraordinary detail, but I personally have done a lot of research into the topic of nutrition and I LOVE talking about it!
