Bio

I am a graduate of Princeton University and am incredibly passionate about the ways in which people learn, inspiring me to pursue a degree in neuropsychology with a minor in cognitive science. I have experience working with students who are in grades K-College and also have experience with in-home tutoring. Through great experiences teaching English in Chiangmai, Thailand, tutoring Calculus I and II through Princeton University's McGraw Tutoring program, and tutoring dozens of students...

I am a graduate of Princeton University and am incredibly passionate about the ways in which people learn, inspiring me to pursue a degree in neuropsychology with a minor in cognitive science. I have experience working with students who are in grades K-College and also have experience with in-home tutoring. Through great experiences teaching English in Chiangmai, Thailand, tutoring Calculus I and II through Princeton University's McGraw Tutoring program, and tutoring dozens of students through tutoring companies, I have encountered a variety of learning styles and developed a love for teaching in creative ways. My strengths include standardized testing, Spanish, English/Reading, Mathematics (Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus) and GRE/ACT/SAT/CLEP/TOEFL prep.

I believe relating academic subjects to real world scenarios makes learning more fun and tangible, so I try to implement this strategy in each tutoring session. I prepare notes and example problems before each session to better strategize which academic areas to address. Please contact me with any suggestions or to schedule a tutoring session!
