Hello! My name is Julia, and I’m a prospective Chemical and Biological Engineering major at Princeton University. Upon graduation, I hope to work in the cosmetics industry and someday start my own makeup company.
I strongly believe in Einstein’s quotation “if you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” I tutor because I want to inspire others the same way my professors have inspired me. Learning should be both manageable and enjoyable. I hope to not only help my students overcome challenges in their coursework but also give them a foundation in problem solving that they will be able to apply in all fields.
My two favorite subjects are chemistry and mathematics. Outside of school, I enjoy browsing Quora, watching YouTube videos, taking/editing photographs, and shopping.
