Hi! My name is Nora, and I am an undergraduate at Harvard College on the premedical track. Previously, I have served as an NHS tutor and Science Olympiad mentor for students at my high school in a variety of science subjects.

Outside of science, I am also passionate about creative writing. I have mentored high school students in building writing portfolios, drafting essays, and finding joy in literature. I enjoy fostering personal connections with my mentees both inside of and beyond the classroom.

When I’m not tutoring, you can find me writing poetry and essays, designing book and magazines covers, and dancing!
