Why did you become a tutor?
I believe that the ability to teach and retell information holds value in any type of career and it is something that I genuinely enjoy. Tutoring these courses also helps me remember important material from introductory courses.

What is your favorite thing about the subject in which you tutor?
Biology and neuroscience provide a logical map in making sense of the human body. Psychology and neuroscience both uncover why humans are they way they are but through different methods.

What is the best study tip you have for a student taking one of the courses you tutor?
Relate details to the bigger picture; though memorization is inevitable in courses like biology and neuroscience, approaching these courses like a history course can make the memorization easier and possibly more enjoyable.

Why should students come to Study Lab?
Study Lab provides a unique experience where students who have gone through the actual course, successfully, can share what worked and what didn't work for them.
