I think one of the best feelings is when a difficult concept finally "clicks." As a student of history and other humanities at Princeton, I spend lots of time working for that feeling, and Iâ€™m more than excited to help students achieve it!
Iâ€™m originally from Cleveland, Ohio, where I tutored in standardized testing, English, and math, but Iâ€™m happy to help with other subjects as well. After graduation, I hope to attend law school and eventually work in international human rights law or as a public defender. I studied Spanish in Argentina last summer, and the summer before participated in a student exchange program to China. In my free time, I like to run (slowly), read novels, and hang out with friends.
