My name is Ardaschir, and I am an undergraduate at Columbia University, studying Classics and East Asian studies. Growing up, I moved frequently — I lived in South Korea, Lebanon, California, Singapore, the UAE, and Minnesota — and this has given me an interest in world civilizations and interactions between cultures. I was homeschooled through most of middle and high school, so I have a passion for self-discipline and study habits, and my goal in tutoring is to equip others with the tools they need for self-directed study. As a creative writer, I particularly enjoy helping others with writing and foreign languages, but I also tutor mathematics. Outside of tutoring, at Columbia I am involved in a number of activities, including debate, club rugby, and Christian Union.
