I graduated from Vassar College this spring with a bachelor's degree in biochemistry. I will be pursuing a master's degree in Clinical Nutrition at Columbia University starting this fall and I plan to pursue a Ph.D. afterward. I have worked in many labs and wrote a thesis this spring that focussed on genetics and biochemistry. I am passionate about science, particularly biology, as well as English and French, which I grew up speaking. I have experience tutoring high school and college students as well as tutoring younger students since I have three little sisters who are 6, 11 and 18 years old. I enjoy helping students study for standardized tests like the SAT and GRE, particularly in the critical reading and writing sections. I ran cross country and track competitively in high school and college and strongly believe that any student can master a subject if they approach it with practice, consistency, and an open mind as they would approach a sport or hobby they feel passionate about. I hope I can provide the help along the way to help students achieve their goals.
