Hi, my name is Chris, and I am currently an undergrad at Princeton University. I plan to concentrate in Economics and hopefully also get a certificate in Finance. I’m super excited to be a part of Princeton Tutoring because I would love to get more involved with the community outside of the Orange Bubble and help students feel more at ease with subjects/tests that tend to give them a hard time. I have previously tutored middle and high schoolers in essay writing and am generally most confident in the realm of reading comprehension/writing. However, I am also comfortable with tutoring students in Pre-Algebra and Algebra I.
Apart from academics, I’m a big lover of the arts (both visual and performing)! My past role as the editor of my high school’s arts and literature magazine piqued my recent interest in digital drawing, and I usually spend the rest of whatever free time I have dancing. I did a lot of ballet in high school which granted me incredible opportunities to dance at venues like Lincoln Center and on Chinese National TV. Now, on campus, I dance with both Princeton University Ballet and Bodyhype!
