Hello and welcome to my profile! I am a graduate of St. John's High School and a rising sophomore at Harvard College. I graduated valedictorian of my high school class, and I was chosen as a 2013 Telegram & Gazette Student Achiever, representing St. John's. I like math and science, and am happy to tutor in math, chemistry, physics, economics, and SAT prep. I plan to concentrate in Applied Mathematics at Harvard. I am a member of the Harvard rowing team and Harvard's Veritas Financial Group. I will be in Shrewsbury until August.
I received the following scores, which are evidence of my qualifications:
Math: 800 SAT Math, 5 AP BC Calculus, A in Multivariable Calculus (Harvard), A in Linear Algebra and Differential Equations (Harvard)
Physics: 800 SAT II Physics, 5 AP Physics B, 5 AP Physics C (Both mechanics and E&M), A in Introductory Mechanics (Harvard)
Chemistry: 800 SAT II Chemistry, and 5 AP Chemistry.
Economics: A in Introductory Microeconomics (Harvard), A in Introductory Macroeconomics (Harvard)
I scored a 5 on the AP BC Calculus exam. I scored an 800 on the SAT portion of the math exam. At Harvard, I received an A in multivariable calculus and an A in linear algebra and differential equations. I am concentrating in applied math.
I was recruited to Harvard for rowing: I can coach erging technique and supervise workouts, assign workouts, look at results, and suggest how to move forward. I can help improve erg times for college recruiting. The best time to lower erg times for recruiting is between the spring of sophomore year and the summer going into senior year. I am experienced with the expectations of coaches, both athletically and academically. A fast erg score can make you an (even more) outstanding college applicant!
I scored a 5/5 on the AP Statistics exam in 2013.
