I graduated from Yale College in May with a major in molecular biophysics and biochemistry. I'm currently in New Haven working in a basic science laboratory. I will be attending medical school in the fall.

My coursework has given me a solid background in biology and chemistry and I can tutor these subjects at a high school or university level. I'm also comfortable with tutoring high school level mathematics. I scored in the 99+ percentile on the SAT and MCAT, and I received perfect scores on SATII subject tests in Spanish and writing (see below for specifics). I'd be very interested in tutoring students who are preparing for these exams.

While I am not a native speaker, I have studied Spanish for ten years, lived in Mexico for a summer, and am currently working as a volunteer medical Spanish translator. I'd be happy to work with students who are studying Spanish at the elementary or intermediate levels.

I have experience as a paid tutor for organic chemistry, geometry, and high school chemistry. References are available upon request.

Standardized tests scores include:
SAT: 1550/1600 (770 verbal, 780 math)
