ANNIE Q recently completed teaching the summer of blended ACT/SAT classes at Kweller Prep and will be available again for Kweller Prep’s fall 2020 ACT class. Annie graduated from CUNY Hunter College and the Bronx High School of Science. She has a dual bachelor’s degree in Human Biology and Psychology (2018). She was actively part of competitive varsity swimming (her strokes were Butterfly and Freestyle, sprint events) for both institutions. She constantly balanced schoolwork, athletics, and working part-time with research internships at The American Museum of Natural History (AMNH), SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and CUNY Lehman College prior to earning her High School Diploma. She was awarded the Caroll and Milton Petrie Grant, Matthew Goldstein Scholarship, Raab Presidential Fellowship, Dean’s List (2013, 2014, 2017), and the Jenny Hunter Scholarship for her time at CUNY Hunter. She has also worked in laboratories of multiple disciplines, starting and managing experiments with the intent of furthering understanding science and cultivating her love for working as an Asian woman in research. Prior to ANNIE Q’s acceptance into the Bronx High School of Science, she was offered summer opportunities for creative writing at Oxford/Cambridge University, and for the Center for Talented Youth at Johns Hopkins University (CTY). She was also training for city-wide and state-wide swimming competitions under Dragos Coca, on the LaGuardia Twisters. She took lessons in Chinese Traditional Dance, Contemporary Dance, piano, and violin at her local community center in Flushing. She regularly performed at her local town hall for monthly recitals. During her years in high school (2008-2012), she participated in New York City Science and Engineering Fair (NYSEF), where she placed within the top 3 ranks with her high school research poster, working with vertebrate paleontologist, Dr. William Harcourt-Smith. Additionally, she worked with clients from 4 months old, up until 90 years old, including those with special needs, for a personalized comprehensive aquatics and water safety instruction at Aquabeba (a swimming institution that focuses on learning through the human stages of development, in private group settings). ANNIE Q currently works for Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) as a Clinical Research Coordinator, managing the statistical and data aspects of clinical trials. She has represented her team internationally for cutting-edge cancer treatment for non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL) patients. Annie has authored two research articles within the first two years of her role at MSKCC and is working on her next manuscript. She also works for CUNY Hunter College as an adjunct in the Psychology Department. She frequently leads and/or assists classes with 20-100 undergraduate or graduate students, provides 1:1 troubleshooting and email support. She frequently grades examinations, holds office hours, creates review material, and gives ample feedback for accelerated growth in the classroom setting. She has also privately tutored doctoral students, focusing on research paper writing and statistical interpretation. Aside from academics, she has worked with world-renowned artist George H. Lewis in many pieces examining the human condition and its evolution, as well as Ridwan Adhami (FRDM Company) to create art with a purpose and patience. She is also certified in lifeguarding/CPR/AED, phlebotomy, EKG, and End-of-Life Nursing Consortium. ANNIE Q hopes to be accepted for her graduate studies for Biostatistics and Data Science. She is interested in machine learning, statistical analyses, and helping the rising generation learn more about being a positive contribution to the world of STEM. Annie is excited to work as a tutor at Kweller Prep. She’s taught a variety of psychology classes at CUNY and worked as a math and science tutor for 8 years before joining Kweller. Annie took the ACT and scored a 35/36. She has taught Kweller Prep’s spring and summer semester ACT class in-person and online. She tutors because she loves to. We are very fortunate to have Annie yet again as our fall 2020 ACT class instructor.

Students in Grades 6,7, or 8 can take the ACT for Talent Search Competitions Grades 6,7, or 8
Students in grades 6, 7, or 8, can participate in an academic talent search program which requires taking the ACT at an early age. Many of these programs offer a one-step registration option that combines registering for the academic talent search program with registering for the ACT. For the ACT Talent search, participants may be required to register directly with the talent search program (see below) rather than using ACT online registration or an ACT registration packet.
