Sneha is a Midwesterner at heart, and grew up outside of Columbus, Ohio. She studied Microbiology at Ohio State, minoring in French in order to combine her passions for both science and the humanities. She graduated in 2018 with a BS in Microbiology, and is currently a medical student at New York University Grossman School of Medicine pursuing the MD/MS dual degree program.
Sneha began tutoring when she was in high school, working with younger learners. In college, she was a Teaching Assistant and then Head TA for a summer course tailored towards central Ohio high school students interested in science and medicine. As TA, she was able to work closely with a small group of students, introducing them to a specific research area within medicine, coaching them on individual projects, and reviewing their assignments and papers. As Head TA, she took on a leadership role in planning the curriculum for the summer program, lecturing, and supporting the other TAs in their own mentorship. During her first two years at NYU, Sneha was also involved with a mentorship program for NYC high school students interested in STEM fields. Her passion in all of her teaching and mentorship roles is getting to know her students individually and to support their unique learning styles.
Outside of school, Sneha loves running, photography, reading, long road trips, and exploring NYC.
