Medha Gargeya

Resident Tutor
G-12
Law, Public Service, IMs

Hiya Adams! I am delighted to return after graduating in Government from the house in 2014. Hailing from the proud state of North Carolina, I traded my overalls (just kidding, I still own a pair) for a down jacket and fell in love with the cobblestone streets, abundance of museums and ice cream establishments, and face-numbing chill (I'm serious!) of Cambridge. After spending a year at Google in San Francisco, I returned to Boston to work for a research firm and study opera at the New England Conservatory. Now I'm back at Harvard as a second-year at the law school, where I am broadly interested in civil litigation, constitutional law, and law and the arts.... Read more about Medha Gargeya

Sheila Gholkar

Resident Tutor
J-204
Law (Lead), Wellness (Lead)

Hello! I’m Sheila Gholkar, a displaced west coaster and a pre-law and wellness tutor at Adams. I’m originally from Arizona, where I went to both college and law school. Interested in public service and economic development work, I majored in economics and Spanish in college. I worked with a nonprofit and traveled the year after graduation, and soon after, I decided on law school. After finishing law school, I moved to Boston to join my husband Vinayak. Since then, I've been working as a public interest law attorney. I spent two years at a legal aid organization representing low-income Bostonians on issues like foreclosure, evictions, and public benefits issues. I now work at the U.S. Department of Labor on employment and immigration matters. Interested in law, nonprofits, travel, advocacy work, or anything similar? Come chat with me in J-204!...

Tim Smith

Senior Resident Tutor
F-11
Law, Librarian, Sophomore Orientation

Tim  is an “aught-eight” graduate of the House. After leaving the nest on Plympton, he made a short detour to study law south of the Mason-Dixon, but soon picked up the scent and found his way back home to Boston to finish his degree. A former House Committee Chair, Tim has a strong affinity toward all things Adams. Having the fortuity to both succeed and precede his two siblings through the College (Roy '03 and Jill '14), he has also become a connoisseur of dining hall food across campus and a seasoned parallel-parker in the Square. A hopelessly optimistic son of the South Shore, Tim is a lifelong Red Sox fan. He is always happy to talk about the LSAT, applications, life in law school, Adams House, or just about anything else...
