Resident Tutor
I-41
Tutor In: Music, Wellness, Writing

Hi, Kirkland! My wife Dina Wang and I are excited to return to Kirkland for a fourth year as I-entryway tutors. I'm currently a PhD student in Tibetan and South Asian religions, and I'm the Senior Tutor, the religious studies tutor, a music tutor, and a writing tutor. I'm also on the wellness team and the international experience team. Before coming to Kirkland, I was a proctor at the Center for the Study of World Religions at Harvard Divinity School, and I also spent a year living in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal. Throughout my undergrad (religious studies, philosophy) and master's (Tibetan and South Asian religions) at the University of Toronto, I played in indie rock bands and produced a few records along the way. I look forward to seeing you all this year! Read more about Rory Lindsay

Tutor in: CARE, Wellness, Community Kitchen, Boat Club

Hi Kirkland! Eric and I are very excited to be returning to Kirkland as L-entryway tutors. I grew up in Chicago, but am originally from Russia, so I love chatting with any fellow Russian speakers or anyone interested in learning words beyond "da","nyet", and "vodka". I completed my undergraduate years at UIUC where I studied speech and hearing science with a minor in Spanish. After that, I received my MS in speech-language pathology from Boston University and now I provide therapy to students facing communication challenges and disorders in the Watertown Public Schools. When I'm not on the hunt for new therapy materials or writing IEP's, I enjoy watching trashy TV shows, drawing, wandering around Boston, and baking delicious treats that may or may not contain kale. I look forward to getting to know you and am always ready to talk about education, health sciences, languages, art, or the relative merits of Chicago vs New York pizza. Ask me why Kirkland's Boat Club features fresh-baked cookies and is not actually about boats. Read more about Kori Zorina
