I am an aspiring physician with experience is residential life, mentorship, and research. I have had 2 years of experience as a residential supervisor, 4 years of diverse tutoring experience, and 1 year worth of wet lab biochemistry research experience.
As a Chemistry Lab Mentor for the past year, I served Dr. Alison Redden in helping with grading and holding office hours for students to seek help on course material. I held 3-5 office hours weekly where I helped students with post lab reports and explained material they were having trouble with. In addition, I helped hold reviews before major exams where I answered students' questions about course material that would appear on the exams.
After joining Varsity Tutors my freshman year, I became a certified SAT/ACT, biology, chemistry, physics, and math (up to multivariate calculus) national tutor. I had five consistent clients with whom I worked with each weekly to keep them on track academically. Each client reached their desired score for the AP/standardized exam I helped prepare them for. I left the job because the online platform was difficult to teach over and because of the opportunity Dr. Redden offered me as a chemistry lab mentor.
During my freshman and sophomore years at Washington University, I volunteered for Washu HOPE through the Campus Y. As a volunteer, I tutored children at the downtown Doorways AIDS shelter in math and reading. I helped students ages 6-14. Towards the end of my sophomore year, I was given the freedom to design science experiments for the children to facilitate early learning of chemistry and biology. I am currently working with Grace McKee in the Campus Y to establish my own program that focuses on a science experiment based curriculum to inspire learning in underprivileged schools.
I currently serve Dr. Chalker as a Biology 2970 TA. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, attending lectures, holding 2 office hours/help sessions per week, attending weekly TA meetings, and grading homework, quizzes, and exams.
While at SCGSSM, I spent two years as a physics tutor under Dr. Clyde Smith. I held weekly office hours and problem solving sessions before each exam. I also assisted Dr. Smith and Dr. Mark Godwin in coaching students for the Physics Olympiad.
For my senior year, I was a writing center tutor under Dr. Joseph Wensink. I held two office hour sessions each week where I reviewed students' essays and provided constructive feedback.
For my senior year, I also served as a chemistry tutor under Dr. Lance Riddle. I held problem solving sessions each Saturday, helping students with AP Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, and Biochemistry.
I work as a research intern in the Amarasinghe Immunology lab. In the lab, I have become proficient with PCR, DNA purification, transformation, sequencing, setting up crystallization screens, scoring crystal samples, and optimizing crystallization buffers.
I spent the summer after my sophomore year working as a residential program assistant for the High School Summer Institutes Program organized by WUSTL Summer Experiences. As an RPA, I was responsible for the emotional and social well-being of over 100 students that lived on my residential hall over the course of the institute program. In addition to mentoring, we programmed events that aimed to promote self-advocacy, independent-living, develop college readiness, diversity and inclusion, and social well being.
I currently serve as a residential assistant for sophomores in Myers Hall on the South 40 Residential Area. I am responsible for the emotional and social well being of 62 sophomores living in the building. My responsibilities include holding one-on-one meetings with residents, programming events that promote education about social justice, diversity, and inclusivity, and enforcing university policies (alcohol, drugs, etc.). I broadly serve as a mentor and as a liaison between students and administration.
I volunteer at St. Mary's Hospital. My first 40 hours of volunteering have consisted of front desk work, mainly locating patients for visitors and nurses.
WUCT is the largest and most competitive national chemistry tournament for high school students. I serve as a Question Writing Subcommittee Chair. My responsibilities include running a small committee of 5 members to write a comprehensive exam for competitors to take. The committee writes the entire exam, solutions key, and meets weekly with faculty members in the Chemistry Department to review questions. On competition day, I am responsible for organizing grading and scoring for my exam and sorting out appeals that competitors make based on the released answer keys. I also developed practice problem kits for coaches to provide their students with for the months leading up to the competition.
