Hi! I am a rising senior at Boston University majoring in Neuroscience and Biology. As someone with diverse interests, I can certainly help a lot in math and science related fields, but have always pursued more creative things in my past-time as well!

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I have tutored people from K-12 in various different subjects, and provided SAT/ACT help. Beyond that though, I have worked in several different laboratories that have always operated on a collaborative basis, so teaching and working with others is something I do often.
