About this tutor

I have a BA in Psychology with a minor in biology and public health from Columbia University. I've shadowed doctors, and worked at a biotech startup doing Product Development, and Research and Development. I am passionate about making science accessable and understandable to everyone at any level. I feel that I've succeeded in my job if the student feels empowered by their ability to learn and understand concepts by the end of the session.

I enjoy making things that seem complicated at first, understandable to students which helps empower them to feel more capable with their learning abilities.
