ExperienceHey! I'm Sandra
I'm currently a third year dental student at NYU. I also graduated from there in 2014 with a bachelor's in Biology, and minors in Chemistry and Physics.
I started tutoring in high school and have continued it since. I love teaching and want to pursue it as an academic faculty in the future.
I think that the way concepts are traditionally taught can make learning more difficult. Textbooks and teachers follow curriculums and strict guidelines. I like to simplify things with my students. I have experience teaching in a classroom setting as well - in college I was a peer health educator and taught health classes in public schools all over NYC.
Subjects I specialize in include all science classes - especially those required of pre-med students. I've tutored students in dental school as well. I have an extensive background in research as well - I worked in a DNA Nanotechnology lab for 3 years in college and presented posters at a few conferences.
As someone who's deeply invested in my own education and learning, I also love working with people.
I love getting to know my students and helping them achieve success academically because I know it will more than benefit them in the future.
Please contact me if you have any questions about college or even medicine, not just inquiries about tutoring - would love to help in anyway I can.
HobbiesDuring the day, I'm in dental school, undergoing a very rigorous curriculum.
In my spare time, I'm either exploring the city - trying out different restaurants, going to art exhibits, concerts, any fun events really - I am always doing something - or I do love to spend the occasional night in with my adorable kitten, Milo.

Sandra is warm and friendly, with a great attitude and a will to work. She is very easy to connect to, which for me is a must when being tutored. She has worked with me for over a year and is like my older sister. She is very caring and compassionate and will always take the time out of her day to help you. She is an extremely hard worker and it shows, now that she is able to still have an abundance of time for me while being a dental student at NYU.
Sandra was very nice and approachable. I felt very comfortable working with her. She answered my questions thoroughly and helped me understand it as well.
Sandra was a great teacher. Since tutoring was during the summer, she was very flexible with the time. She knows her subject areas well. I will definitely use her services again. Overall, she was a delightful tutor.
