I graduated from Harvard in 2012 with a major in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, a minor in English, and a language citation in Spanish. I love biology and in particular animal behavior, which is what I research: I will begin my PhD in the fall. I love fieldwork and I have studied in the rainforests of Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, and the Peruvian Amazon. While I was at Harvard I worked as a peer tutor for biology, chemistry, physics, and Spanish courses; I also taught health education workshop to Boston area high school students. When I am tutoring I feel it is important to both demonstrate problem-solving techniques and then guide students to the point where they can work out the solution and enjoy that moment of insight. I feel like these strategies empower students to approach subject and test material on their own terms. In my spare time I am an avid reader and an aspiring fiction writer.
