Looking for help preparing for an upcoming biology exam? Struggling with a psychology writing assignment? I love psychology and biology and would be excited to help you master the material and strengthen your writing.

A little bit about me… I graduated with a B.S. in Brain and Cognitive Sciences in 2012 from MIT and am working to complete a post-baccalaureate program in premedical sciences at Columbia University. In high school, I competed as one of 20 finalists in the USA Biology Olympiad. In my free time I read The Economist and play soccer.

Having studied cognitive science as an undergraduate, I can teach you techniques to aid in memorization and test taking. I am adept with computers, citations, and formatting styles. I am happy to furnish a writing sample upon request. Please don’t hesitate to contact me.
