About Me

I am currently an MD/Ph.D. student in NYC studying the microbiome. I also previously graduated with the highest honors from Emory University where I was in the Scholars Program and earned a B.S in biology.

Now that I am pursuing two doctorate degrees, I reflect on these earlier experiences and realized how learning has been transformational for me. Through mentors and instructors, and my own personal trial and error, I have learned the inspiring transformation that both learning and teaching brings. I am inspired to help others surpass their goals in their own academic journeys.

And it's not just about working hard but studying smart. Through my extensive tutoring and academic career, I've built a repertoire of strategies and resources for you to learn efficiently for building knowledge and increasing memory retention.

Education

2011-2013: Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy
2013-2017: Emory University, Biology BS Highest Honors
2017-Present: Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, MD/Ph.D. Candidate

Experience / Qualifications

At Emory University, I enjoyed my roles as a foundational biology undergraduate teaching assistant and academic coach. As a teaching assistant, I worked with scholars in achieving excellence in their professional pursuits in biology (e.g. classroom work, research internships) by one-on-one tutoring, in-class assistance, and TA review sessions. In addition, I enjoyed working as an academic coach to assist students with a broad range of skills, from study skills to time management. I am available for these services currently.

I've also worked extensively with pre-med students to build their applications for medical schools. Currently, I review applications and interview applicants for my school's MD/Ph.D. program. I was a writing tutor for high school students. I am available for proofreading essays, application preparation, interview practices, and other admission consultant capacities.

Vinicius
Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Guitar Lessons
Hello, my name is Vinicius, I am a Brazilian Biologist and I am a PhD candidate in Neuroscience at VU Amsterdam. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 and I have been teaching the instrument for over a decade now. I believe that motivating the student and helping him to integrate the instrument into his daily routine is the most important role that a teacher can do. My methodology is the flipped-classroom and I use the Google Classroom platform: every week, I will write a study guide with details of what we discussed during class + references (videos/blogs/books). This can be used by the student to study carefully at their own pace. During our next class, we will discuss the points you had the most difficulty and advance your knowledge further. I can also record videos and write essays from scratch specifically for you, whenever the material is not available online. About me I learned to play the guitar on my own - later in life I had classical training at university (singing, piano and classical guitar). I play Fingerstyle guitar, popularized by artists like Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel and Antoine Dufour, which consists of playing melody, harmony and percussion at the same time. I have published an EP named "14th of August" with original fingerstyle compositions in 2020.

Benoit
Private Maths Lessons - Limoges or Online - Qualified and Experienced Mathematics Teacher
I am a young, qualified and experienced mathematics tutor. While each child encounters unique learning difficulties, the ever increasing number of students per class is forcing teachers to standardize their teaching method. Faced with this observation, I decided to specialize in individual tutoring in order to guide each student on the path to success. I give my private lessons in Limoges (at the student's home) or remotely (by internet). My distance learning courses take place on an interactive whiteboard. This educational tool considerably improves the student / teacher interaction. The student only needs a computer, a tablet, or a smartphone to use it. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of his knowledge in mathematics. The goal is to identify its weak points and understand their origin. I then adapt the content of my courses to their specific needs. I make it a tailor-made remediation program aimed at gradually filling each of its shortcomings. At the same time, I support the student in learning new subjects by making sure that he masters the mathematical notions necessary for the validation of his school year. I also do substantive work teaching the most effective learning methods. Finally, thanks to modern means of communication, the pupil benefits from emergency assistance accessible remotely 7 days a week (help with homework, explanation the day before an assessment, etc.).
