My academic experiences have spanned many different subjects. I have always loved history and the sciences, particularly chemistry. Despite my love for these subjects, they have not come easily to me always. I know that Chemistry can have a particularly sharp learning curve for students and I worked through that myself, developing study and problem solving techniques that eventually led me to score a 5 on the AP Chemistry exam. History also requires a lot of time and effort, especially with memorization, synthesis, and learning how to craft an argument for historical writing. Given my own experiences with academics and tutoring, I can offer support across a range of subjects including middle and high school math, high school biology and chemistry, and writing and study support in English and History.

A little more about me! I am currently living and working in Boston, where I grew up. I received my BA in History of Science from Harvard University, completing coursework in history, government, social sciences, biology, chemistry, and physics. I recently graduated with First Honors from National University of Ireland, Galway with my Masters in Gender, Globalization, and Human Rights. I was just accepted to medical school at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and will begin there in the fall of 2018.
