I am currently an MD/PhD student at Harvard Medical School and MIT and have served as a premedical tutor at Harvard College for four years. At Harvard College, I was the editor-in-chief of the Harvard Science Review, received the Hoopes Prize for my senior thesis in computational immunology, represented Harvard at the World Debate Championships, ran varsity track, and published multiple scientific articles. I was also named the Intel Young Scientist of 2008 and won the International Science and Engineering Fair and the Taiwan International Science Fair in 2008 and 2009. Grateful for the wonderful academic opportunities I have had, I want to help students excel on their paths to medical school.
I have gotten fulfillment from teaching for the past 8 years! As a premedical tutor, I consult for students at Harvard, from freshmen to recent graduates, and provide mock interviews, resume edits, essay edits, strategies for planning out a college career, and tips on maximizing one’s competitive advantage from labwork and medically-related activities. I teach a biochemistry-based physiology class to high schoolers, taught a philosophy class for two years to help debaters excel (resulting in two state championships), and taught volunteers how to educate kids about tobacco smoke in health classes. Teaching and advising is a long-standing passion of mine.
In my free time, I love to train on the track and continue to race at USA Track and Field meets, travel to my family and friends, and make arts and crafts.
