Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I worked for two years tutoring in Classics, including mentoring students in Latin translation and related subjects such as Classical mythology and History. I was able to guide my primary student to medals in several regional and national contests. In the sciences, I worked as a Cell Biology teaching assistant for three semesters, leading discussion sessions and responding to student inquiries. I have also served as an independent tutor for other subjects in the natural sciences and pre-professional exams such as the MCAT.
