My name is Elena, and I am currently an undergrad student at Princeton University. I grew up in Montclair, New Jersey, and one of my favorite extracurricular activities has always been tutoring. During my final year of high school, I spent a great deal of time tutoring other high schooler and middle schooler students. Not only did I find tutoring to be helpful for the students, but it was also a learning experience for me. I learned so much about the variety of ways that people learn and understand various concepts. My passions are chemistry and math– particularly algebra and calculus. I've been a camp counselor for five years, and I really enjoy working with children and young adults.
