I come from a tight-knit family in Chatham, NJ, who has lovingly released me to Princeton University's undergraduate program. At the University, I love trying new things and having more fun with the old. My interests include playing the piano and organ, as well as spending time on the squash courts. My love for music and racquet sports began at my high school, Delbarton, in Morristown, NJ. A Benedictine all-boys school, Delbarton provided me with the experiences that shaped who I am today– from my involvement with Catholic youth ministry to my love of travel. There, I began to tutor fellow classmates and underclassmen, with whom I already shared a scholarly connection. My experience as a tutor has led me to value patience as one of the greatest asset in learning, both for the teacher and the student. As a tutor, above all, I try to foster a love of learning because I believe that passion for knowledge is responsible for success.
