I recently graduated from Indiana University (IU) with a Bachelor of Science in Molecular Life Sciences with a concentration in Molecular and Cellular Biology and a Bachelor of Arts in Gender Studies. While I was at IU, I was a teacher's assistant (TA) for Molecular Biology. While this can be a difficult subject, I loved being able to explain the intricacies of it to students during office hours. I was also a member of Alpha Chi Sigma, a professional chemistry fraternity, for three years; we provided free Chemistry tutoring once a week and helped students with test prep. My favorite job I've ever had was as at an IU summer program for freshmen, where I was a TA for a class about feminist and psychoanalytic film analysis of horror movies. I absolutely loved working with my students and introducing them to the new, weird world of horror movie analysis. Currently, I tutor for Biology, History, English, and Social Studies. I'm very excited about this opportunity to be a tutor because I know what it's like to struggle in a class, and I wish I would have reached out to a tutor myself. It's so important for students to have the resources they need to succeed in and even enjoy their education. My hope is that through tutoring, I can show students another way of looking at the subject. In my spare time, I've been devouring audiobooks and podcasts about history, race, gender, and colonialism while I play Pokemon on my Switch.
Education & Certification
Undergraduate Degree: Indiana University-Bloomington - Bachelor of Science, Cellular and Molecular Biology
I'm fascinated by history, especially history that isn't normally taught in schools. I'm currently learning about Ancient Rome and having a great time with it. My passion is Gender Studies, and I hope to go to graduate school for it next year. Along with the humanities, I also enjoy biology, especially molecular biology. I like being able to break down biological processes into their most basic components and analyzing how they work. The molecular world is truly amazing. Besides academic interests, I love crocheting, taking my cat on walks in her stroller, and watching anything Star Wars.
