My tutoring experience started during my Freshman year at Stanford University, when I traveled to Papua New Guinea to teach a variety of subjects to a class of seventh graders. After battling malaria, I returned to the States having lived without electricity and running water for two and a half months. The following summer, I decided to take a break from my studies in Biology at Stanford to attend Columbia University, where I studied the Bible and Abnormal Psychology. After finishing my semester as a visiting student with a 4.0 GPA, I flew abroad to study English Literature at Oxford University, where I achieved a 3.8 GPA. Upon returning to Stanford, I switched my major from Biology to English Literature, in addition to adding a minor in Cognitive Neuroscience. I spent my senior year writing a 70-page Honors thesis and tutoring students at East Palo Alto Tennis and Tutoring. I graduated from Stanford University with Honors and a 3.8 GPA and was immediately accepted into the Master's program for Cognitive Neuroscience. After the gut-wrenching decision of forgoing the Master's program in favor of my career as a musician, I started tutoring again because of the flexibility and fulfillment it affords me. I have been tutoring for the past year now, and I hope that I can continue doing so for as long as I can.
