Hi there! My name is Jake, and I am an undergrad at Princeton University hailing from the Chicago suburbs. Giving back is one of my core values, and throughout the past eight years, I have enjoyed providing high-quality tutoring services to middle and high school students in a variety of subjects, including STEM and standardized test prep. I understand that every student learns differently, and my support is carefully designed around individual needs in order to maximize success in both the short- and long-term. At Princeton, I am studying Chemical and Biological Engineering and pursuing certificates in Applied & Computational Math, Engineering Biology, and Asian American Studies. In the future, I hope to contribute to the biomedical field by researching and developing novel therapies that have a positive clinical impact. In my free time, I like to explore the outdoors, go to concerts, and drink bubble tea.
