In these courses, I taught a hands-on lab course, led a discussion section, and evaluated student work. I enjoy teaching biology to students, and am confident in my ability to help any student excel in the subject.

Choosing and applying to college can be a long, momentous process with huge implications. There are countless factors and steps to consider, and it can easily become overwhelming for all those involved.

I attended Stuyvesant High School, Cornell University, and several graduate institutions, and have been through admissions processes many times personally, as well as being a first-hand observer to the processes of many of my peers. As such, I feel confident in being able to provide up-to-date, relevant advice in today's ever-more competitive admissions climate.
