I am a rising senior at the University of Rochester majoring in Neuroscience with interests in chemistry, psychology, and music. Over the last five years, I have cultivated my passion in tutoring students and have accumulated experience across a variety of subjects. Beyond the classroom, I am an avid climber and musician (cello, piano, and vocals!). During my time in quarantine, however, I have been dedicating my time to various puzzles like crosswords and KenKens while catching up on The West Wing, Money Heist, and Criminal Minds.
