My name is Dane, and I am an undergraduate at Princeton! When I’m not studying or hanging out in Forbes College, I play violin in the University Orchestra and act in theater productions across campus.
I first started tutoring as a junior in high school, when some friends and I started organizing study sessions in which one student would teach everyone else in their strongest topic. This slowly blossomed into regular group tutoring sessions. I love tutoring because of the satisfaction of seeing someone’s eyes light up when they finally understand something, and their gratitude when our work shows in their tests.
I most enjoy tutoring in Biology, Chemistry, Calculus (and anything leading up to Calculus), and I am also a very strong essay writer.
