Hello! I’m Hayden, and I am a graduate student at Princeton University in the Mechanical Engineering department. I also completed my undergraduate degree at Princeton and graduated summa cum laude with a degree in mechanical engineering and a certificate in linguistics.
I love to teach – there is nothing better than seeing a concept really click for a student! Outside of tutoring, I have held several other teaching/mentoring roles including working as a peer academic adviser during my undergraduate years and my current role as a project consultant in one of the university’s makerspaces where I give trainings and run workshops.
I mostly tutor math (calculus has always been one of my favorite subjects to engage with) and test prep. I am looking forward to helping my students achieve their academic goals and really feel comfortable with the material they are learning!
