The Autumn 2021 Tutoring Staff Includes:

 

Ben Jackson

Ben Jackson

Hi, my name is Ben Jackson! I'm a fourth-year senior majoring in Economics and Public Policy Analysis. What I like most about economics is how it can help us explain human decision making throughout history and predict decisions and behavior in the future. Whenever life gets difficult, I try to remind myself that one day I will have made it past those times and be better for having lived through them.


Brandon Frye

Brandon Frye

Hi, my name is Brandon Frye and I am a fourth year studying economics and public policy analysis. While I came into OSU studying health sciences, I found that my passion lied within economic policy. With that said, I find the most interesting fields to be macroeconomics and political economics. After I graduate, I plan on obtaining a doctorate in economics and work within the public sector to develop economic policy.


Greta Warmbier

Greta Warmbier

My name is Greta Warmbier. I am a third year Eminence Fellow and I am majoring in Economics, minoring in Spanish, and I have a concentration in Computer and Information Science through the Capital Program. I like Economics because it challenges me. In high school, AP Microeconomics was the one class that really gave me a hard time. I think it is important to do hard things because by doing them, they begin to feel easier. But they don't actually get easier, you just get better. 


Henry Halverson

Henry Halverson

Hi, my name is Henry and I am a third year majoring in Economics and Public Policy Analysis.  My favorite aspect about the field of economics is how applicable it is to so many aspects of life. I am super excited to be a tutor at the ELC this year! I hope I can help everyone have a good semester in whatever Econ class they are in.


Jake Roberts

Jake Roberts

Hi everyone! My name is Jake Roberts and I am currently a senior studying economics and statistics.  I enjoy economics because it is timelessly applicable to any field of study for critical analysis.  One quote I try to live by comes from Walt Disney when he said "The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing".


Kimball Chen

Kimball Chen

My name is Kimball Chen. I am a fourth-year majoring in political science and economics. I like economics because it simplifies the complex human interactions and helps us get closer to unveil the essence of our society. The basic knowledge of economics also provides a level of certainty to understand today’s world politics that is constantly filled with ideological conflicts. There are two principles I live by — love yourself and be kind to others.


Luke Ciminillo Delamotte

Luke Ciminillo Delamotte

My name is Luke Ciminillo Delamotte. I am in my third year  double majoring in Economics and City & Regional Planning. What I like most about the field of Economics is its applicability; I haven't found a topic that can't be approached using a economic lense. A quote that really speaks to me comes from one of history's greatest philosophers, Calvin, as in the Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes. He says “There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want.” and I cannot think of a truer statement.


Maddie Miller

Maddie Miller

My name is Madeline Miller and I am currently a junior double-majoring in economics and finance with a data analytics minor. I was initially drawn to the field of economics for its ability to develop strategic thinking and focus on optimization of outcomes, but I have most enjoyed further exploring experimental/ behavioral economics along the way. Another area of interest for me has always been the history of economic development, especially on the global scale. One of my favorite quotes that I try to live by both in school and life is from the late American educator Marva Collins, who put it best when she said “success doesn’t come to you, you go to it”.


Shivani Levine

Shivani Levine

Hi! My name is Shivani Levine and I am going to be a 3rd year here. I am majoring in Economics and minoring in Public Affairs. I like that the study of economics can explain so many parts of our lives from sports to politics to business, and that it shows the importance of making choices. I like to say that our choices create actions which creates confidence. 


Sonam Rustagi

Sonam Rustagi

Hello! I'm Sonam Rustagi! I am a third year student studying Economics and Environmental Studies, with a minor in Public Policy. I find economics interesting because the applications of the field are unimaginably wide. I am especially interested in the intersection of economics and environmental sciences and its applications to climate change policy. I like to remind myself of the quote "the purpose of life is a life of purpose" by the author Robert Byrne. 


 

Will Gilbert

Will Gilbert

My name is Will Gilbert and I am currently a junior majoring in economics with minors in philosophy and mathematics. I first became interested in economics after playing games like Civilization as a kid and becoming fascinated with the game's simulation of global economies. Now, I love economics because its theories illuminate the ways people make decisions, and the impacts of those micro-decisions on the world and economy. A favorite quote of mine comes from Plato, "Good actions give strength to ourse​lves and inspire good actions in others."
