Hey there! My name is John and I'm a Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering major. I started tutoring back in 12th grade teaching Algebra II, AP Calc, and SAT Math to high school students. Since then I've started tutoring the introductory Physics and Calculus courses at Princeton. While my strength and the majority of my experience is in tutoring math and physics, I have tutored less quantitative subjects such as writing, reading comprehension, and history. I have a passion for understanding and teaching math beyond that of what's expected in school. Being that math (of all levels) underlies essentially all quantitative academic disciplines, I believe that a strong foundational understanding of it is intensely valuable. After college, I hope to attend graduate school or work at an aerospace firm (or both!).
