Marine-Ayan

Bio

Marine hails originally from France, but now, after passing through Quebec and Michigan as a child, she calls New Jersey home. She attended Cornell University and graduated in May of 2020 with a BA in Biology and a minor in Spanish. Upon graduation, she was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa with a 4.0 GPA. During her time at Cornell, Marine spent much of her time researching the pathology of Calcific Aortic Valve Disease (CAVD) and consequently fell in love with the cardiovascular system. She has temporarily relocated to Manhattan, where she is spending her gap year before medical school.

Marine has tutored students as young as 7 years old and as old as 72. She has extensive experience tutoring for a range of science courses, though organic chemistry, biochemistry, and biology seem to constantly be battling it out for first place in her heart. Marine particularly enjoys the careful attention and support required to prepare students for large, stressful exams like the MCAT, and understands that every student has different needs and strengths. Her favorite part of tutoring the MCAT is creating a battle plan specific to her respective students, while simultaneously building a close and trusting relationship in the process.

Outside of her professional life, Marine has a deep passion for martial arts - she was her collegiate taekwondo team’s captain, and she’s currently exploring a variety of other martial arts, including boxing and Muay Thai. Marine also loves to paint, and when she is not doing either of the above, you can usually find her with her nose stuck in a book.
