Helen graduated from MIT with a Bachelor’s degree in biological engineering and a 4.9 out of 5.0 GPA. She was pumped to return to New York City, her hometown, to start medical school at Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai in the fall of 2015. She spent the bulk of her time at MIT working in the lab, volunteering, and being busy around campus as a student representative of the MIT Medical Center, freshman residential associate advisor, and Community Service Chair of her sorority, among other activities. Helen has also worked in the Office of Global Research at the NIH, formulating global health policy between the US and other countries.
Helen’s main areas of focus in teaching are biology, mathematics, statistics, chemistry (especially organic!), and physics. She also teaches SAT, SAT 2, AP, and MCAT in these subjects. Helen is very interested in applying engineering and technology to improve healthcare delivery and is so excited to share her enthusiasm with students. She will make it her priority to know her students’ unique academic goals and help them achieve those goals.
In her free time, Helen enjoys traveling, playing badminton, trying new recipes, taking photos, and watching obscene amounts of Netflix.
