I am a senior at Smith College majoring in Biology with a minor in African Studies. I’ve been tutoring students since I was in high school in biology, math, chemistry, study skills and organization. I was the Student Academic Adviser for my dorm my sophomore year, and I was a lab teaching assistant for an introductory Biology course. My strongest background is in biology, French, and building study skills. I’ve studied French for 7 years, including work as an Au Pair in France and Studying abroad in Madagascar. Because of my biology major, I also have a strong understanding of chemistry and math and a solid grasp on essay writing. Strong writing skills are essential, no matter what you study. My African studies minor as well as a love for history in high school has given me a firm grasp of both US history and European history. Of all these subjects, biology is my favorite to teach. I’m passionate about all the weird and wonderful things in Biology, especially microbiology, and I love to share this interest with others. I know math and science can be hard for people to grasp and I’ve come up with many tools to conceptualize the subject matter and piece it together. Biology is like a storybook of the world; you just need to learn its language.

As a tutor I am creative, organized, and energetic. I recognize that every person studies differently and I always look for the best solution for each student. I personally am a visual learner, and I have many tools for conceptualizing a subject in different ways. I'm always open to new forms of teaching, and aspire to make the subject fun and engaging. In my free time I enjoy getting out in Nature, baking, photography, ballet/dance, and traveling whenever possible.
