Hello! My name is Orion, and I recently graduated pre-med from Harvard University. Although I have a strong interest in science with a degree in Integrative Biology, I also love the arts including theater and music. In college, you could find me working on problem sets in the morning and singing my heart out in rehearsal at night. These days, you can find me studying for the MCAT, editing case reports for a neurology publication, and harmonizing around the house with my friends. I hope to practice medicine someday, perhaps in Emergency Medicine (where I have worked as a medical scribe in the past) or Neurology, but also hope to maintain a strong connection to academia and creativity through research and writing. My favorite part of tutoring is getting to know how my students’ brains work and helping them discover the tools and techniques that will help things click. The subjects I tutor include test prep (ACT), Writing (especially College Essay), Precalculus, Biology, Chemistry, Neuroscience, Anatomy, and Psychology. I look forward to meeting you!
