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.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biology

I completed a B.S. in brain and cognitive sciences at MIT in 2012. Courses I took included Cellular Neurobiology and the Biochemistry and Pharmacology of Synaptic Transmission.

At Columbia, I am enrolled in the premedical post-baccalaureate program, where I have taken biology and chemistry coursework.

In high school, I competed as one of 20 finalists in the USA Biology Olympiad.

Chemistry

I completed a B.S. in brain and cognitive sciences at MIT in 2012. At Columbia University, I am enrolled in the premedical post-baccalaureate program. At Columbia, I have taken three semesters of general and organic chemistry and completed general chemistry and organic chemistry lab courses.

Psychology

I completed a B.S. in brain and cognitive sciences at MIT in 2012. Courses I took included Cognitive Processes, Statistics for Brain and Cognitive Science, Laboratory in Visual Cognition, the Evolution of Human Nature, Introduction to Linguistics, and Philosophy of Mind.

My research experience in psychology includes working as a research assistant in an MIT psycholinguistics laboratory and in a cognitive evolution laboratory at Harvard. As part of my coursework at MIT, I wrote a literature review on the effects of emotional valence on explicit memory, designed an experiment examining how emotionally valenced mental imagery enhances explicit memory for words, ran statistical analysis on the data, and analyzed the results.
