Hey everyone, My name is Gilbert Giri and I am a senior majoring in computational biology from Nepal. I mostly tutor biology classes with some mathematics and computer science classes as well. In addition, I am a study group leader for BIOL 198 and CSC 161. I am an avid drinker of coffee and spend most of my time (and declining) in Starbucks. Apart from that, I am involved in computational neuroscience research and spend some time with the Badminton club. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Hi! My name is Elizabeth, and I am a math and theater double major. I love swing dance (and am a part of the U of R swing dance club) and spend most of my time outside of class (and sometimes in class also) either singing or acting. I’m fluent in French, which is my minor, and though I love performing arts, I also thoroughly enjoy talking and learning about weird and cool math concepts. I have about three years of tutoring experience working with middle schoolers up to graduate students, and I try my very best to always take a flexible approach so that I fit into whatever works for you. I look forward to hearing from and potentially meeting you; please email me if you have any questions!
