Why did you become a tutor?
I became a tutor because I knew that it would be fulfilling to help others masterclasses that I've enjoyed, and that it would strengthen my own understanding of them! 

What is your favorite thing about the subject in which you tutor? 
I like economics because it's completely contingent on individuals making decisions in ways they're expected to. Everything that you learn is impacted by the small choices you make every day. 

What is the best study tip you have for a student taking one of the courses you tutor? 
Try to figure the patterns and rules out on your own. And take snack breaks so you don't go crazy!

Why should students come to Study Lab?
It never hurts to talk material out with someone else! And the whiteboards are SUPER helpful for econ and not easy to find in the library.
