Resident Tutor

Business, STEM

I grew up in Sudbury Massachusetts before moving to Cambridge in 2009 and Adams House in 2010. I graduated in 2013 and since then, I've been a management consultant, a software engineer, and finally a tutor. You can find me running the streets of Cambridge or studying in the basement of the engineering school.

Hello! I hail from Pittsburgh (greatest city in America!) and am delighted this year to be joining Adams House (greatest house at Harvard!) as a new resident tutor. I am a second year PhD student in Biology, having recently completed a masters in Environmental Policy at Oxford.

Now at Harvard, I run not-hurdles, experiment with bookbinding, and sing a cappella. Much has changed.... Read more about Dakota "Cody" McCoy
