Hi everyone!
My name is Alice and I’m a third year medical student at Carver College of Medicine at the University of Iowa. I got my bachelor’s from Emory University in chemistry and my master’s from Columbia University in bioethics. I’ve been tutoring on and off since high in test prep, English and science. I love thinking about the human body, human mind, and human experiences and sharing those thoughts with others.
