My name is Christian Potter and I am a student at Princeton University from Washington, D.C. I joined Princeton Tutoring because I have had excellent tutoring experiences in the past, tutoring high school students in Precalculus, Latin, Spanish, and other subjects. I find that I learn just as much while tutoring as the student does. My favorite subjects are history, economics, politics, and philosophy. I hope to pursue a career in public policy. Apart from academics, I love to read, play tennis, run, sing, and travel. I also enjoy participating in institutional work on student government, and I have a passion for architecture. Some formative experiences of mine include a student exchange program in Johannesburg, South Africa and two internships on Capitol Hill.
