Hi there! I’m Zoë, a current undergraduate at Harvard University majoring in biomedical engineering. When I shot my sights for a private school, I did so because of the small classes they prided themselves on, which allows students to have close relationships with their professors and ample tutoring opportunities.

Hi there! I’m Zoë, a current undergraduate at Harvard University majoring in biomedical engineering. When I shot my sights for a private school, I did so because of the small classes they prided themselves on, which allows students to have close relationships with their professors and ample tutoring opportunities. During my first year in undergrad, I spent much of my time in office hours in order to get one-on-one clarification of subjects. I found that the best way I learned was through visualization, and tutors that explained things using the board tended to get the point across to me the best.
As a result, the first thing I do as a tutor is understand my student’s learning style so that my lessons are best suited to them. I also place emphasis on communication about what issues they may be having with a specific topic so we can understand where they may be best helped. I love teaching my students both what they don’t know, and how they can learn more efficiently for the future. Finally, I always aim for my lessons to feel more like a conversation than a lecture, I love hearing feedback and getting to know my students!

I have 2 years of experience tutoring in maths, including geometry, algebra 1 and 2, pre-cal, and calculus 1, 2, and 3. I competed in academic competitions throughout my high school career that consisted of difficult timed tests, and it allowed me to become a strong test taker. Furthermore, I competed in calculator applications, which allowed me to learn calculator strategies for the math portion of the SAT that are not common knowledge. I learned through continuous coaching the best way to approach problems in a timed setting, and managed to achieve a 1580 on the first official SAT I took. I then spent one year tutoring other student on the SAT and PSAT.

I respond quickly- send me a message so that we can see if I’m a good fit!

College Counseling

College Counseling

I have recently gone through the college process. I conducted extensive research on what the top schools want, and well as gone through the process of deciding what I want in a college. I know the college writing process, and annotated many of my peers essays. In addition, I’ve completed the difficult required writing course every Harvard freshman must take with an A. I can give personalized and relevant advice for college prep, and know what a student must do both during their high school career and in their application to get to their dream college!

Science

Genetics,

Genetics

I recently completed two Life Sciences courses at Harvard, both of which I finished with A’s. One course focused intensively on cell biology and protein synthesis and function, while the other discussed genetics in depth, including pedigree reading, genetic variation, genetic mutation, gene editing and more. The course material is fresh in my mind and I would be able to help any high school students or early stage STEM majors in college.
