Elizabeth was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. She attended Hunter College, where she majored in Biology and minored in English Literature. There, she discovered her love for research and medicine while working in a cancer metabolism lab. She went on to cultivate her passions at summer research programs at MIT and Rockefeller University. She decided to pursue a dual MD-PhD degree in the hopes of using the knowledge of medicine, as well as the expert mastery of biology and the scientific method, to formulate novel treatments for chronic human diseases. Currently, Elizabeth is a student at NYU School of Medicine’s Medical Scientist Training Program.
Elizabeth has worked with students of all ages and learning styles. Her areas of expertise as a tutor are biology (including genetics, biochemistry and other upper-level coursework), physics, and chemistry; however, she has extensive experience tutoring middle school and high school students across the range of academic subjects. She also works as a strategy and writing coach in the MD admissions coaching service.
In her free time, Elizabeth enjoys taking dance classes, boxing, traveling, and trying new foods in New York City.
