I am a recent Boston University graduate (summa cum laude, GPA: 3.96) with a Bachelor’s of Science in Biomedical Engineering. Currently, I am taking a gap year while applying to medical school, and working on a research project at the Bouxsein Lab in the Beth Israel Deaconness Medical Center. Ultimately, I plan on being a physician, but I am unsure about what I plan on specializing in. I have plenty of experience tutoring in the Engineering Resource Center in Boston University, where I have worked both semesters of my junior year and the first semester of my senior year. At the ERC, I tutored all science and engineering courses that I had taken as an undergraduate. Additionally, I have experience tutoring high school math, science, and SAT prep from volunteering at the Children’s Cancer Center of Lebanon and the Dar al-aytam orphanage in Beirut, Lebanon. Through my experiences as a tutor, I have learned about all the different ways students absorb and learn new material, and doing so has allowed me to adjust my tutoring techniques accordingly. After briefly discussing the material with the student, I try and identify which parts of the material need the most clarification, and spending some time going over that portion (either by a mini-lecture or doing sample problems), I like to get some feedback from the student. Rather than directly providing answers, I try to guide students to the solutions so that it may be easier for them to approach new problems and understand the general concepts. Also, I always try to be persistent and encourage the student, through positive feedback, to make the whole learning process more comfortable. Fun Facts: I love to travel. I am half Lebanese, and I always enjoyed visiting places in Europe, Central America, North Africa, and the Middle East. Someday, I would definitely like to visit places like the Far East, Australia, and New Zealand. I also enjoy all kinds of sports, but mostly basketball, and I also enjoy playing video games in my free time.
