About Olivia


Bio

Hi, I'm Olivia! I recently graduated from Harvard College with a bachelor's degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology, as well as a minor in History of Art and Architecture. I am also an EMT, and while I was in college, I helped teach the school's EMTs. I organized and tutored a semester-long EMT certification course for a class of 20, all of whom passed. I also designed and led monthly review sessions for other EMTs to keep their knowledge and skills sharp.

I am devoted to helping all...

Hi, I'm Olivia! I recently graduated from Harvard College with a bachelor's degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology, as well as a minor in History of Art and Architecture. I am also an EMT, and while I was in college, I helped teach the school's EMTs. I organized and tutored a semester-long EMT certification course for a class of 20, all of whom passed. I also designed and led monthly review sessions for other EMTs to keep their knowledge and skills sharp.

I am devoted to helping all students to the best of my abilities, and I strongly believe that everyone should have the opportunity to succeed in their education. If we're being honest, navigating school at any level or the college application process can be overwhelming. My goal is to reduce that stress and encourage students to find clarity (and hopefully joy!) in learning. My approach to tutoring is to create lesson plans that are clear, engaging, and useful to the student's level, and to split time between teaching and practice. To account for individual learning styles, I'll begin all tutoring relationships by discussing goals, trouble areas, and how you prefer to learn. I'll continue to check in throughout our sessions to get your feedback on what does or doesn't work. Whether you like lectures, worksheets, discussions, games, or quizzes, we can target the method that best suits your needs!

My experience with the sciences spans multiple fields, including chemistry, biology, and physics. Additionally, I am comfortable with the relevant standardized tests (ACT, AP, and SAT subject tests). In addition to my passion and expertise, I can share a perspective on practical applications and experimental design gained through several years of lab experience.

For those seeking help with English, I can help with reading comprehension, literary analysis, and writing skills. My background in English includes coursework in literature, poetry, and various forms of writing (expository, persuasive, creative, and scientific), as well as a strong command of English gramma

Patient and knowledgeable tutor!

Olivia helped explain concepts for my Microcellular Biology summer course. Her explanations were very thorough, yet she helped make it easy to understand. I reviewed a practice exam with her for an upcoming exam I have.
