Hi! My name is Anisha and I am a recent graduate of UC Berkeley with a B.A. in Molecular and Cell Biology and a double minor in Journalism and Science and Math Education. I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in Media, Medicine, and Health at Harvard Medical School. I am passionate about crafting novel public health interventions through storytelling and using creative educational strategies to reach diverse audiences. I’ve tutoring a wide variety of subjects, ranging from AP biology to kindergarten reading comprehension and beyond. In my free time, I enjoy spending time outdoors, watching new movies and spending time with my friends.
