I have experience working with students of all ages, in a variety of settings. In the past, I have coached beginner's tennis, and volunteered at the Princeton Arts Council and at Westminster Choir College to assist with children's art and music classes. I have also tutored the SAT, English, Biology, and other subjects.
I enjoy tutoring because I truly believe, as the adage goes, that knowledge is power and that there is something to appreciate in every subject, even if it's not necessarily a favorite. Moreover, I remember how difficult the transition to the Princeton School System was for me when I moved to Princeton in middle school, and I want to help students facing similar struggles and show them that, although a subject may be challenging, hard work does pay off and success in a difficult class is not impossible.
At Haverford, my major is still undecided, but I plan on majoring in either Comparative Literature or English. In addition, I am taking pre-med courses because I would like to become a surgeon and potentially work with Doctors Without Borders (or, in French, Medecins Sans Frontieres). Some of my hobbies include music (I play the piano), writing poetry, reading, and art. I also enjoy playing sports and being outdoors.
