I love tutoring because I am passionate about learning and spreading that joy to the people around me. I have a lot of teaching and tutoring experience. In high school I tutored my peers in English, assisted students with college applications, and I taught taekwondo to kids of a wide range of ages. This experience as an instructor was fantastic and I loved cheering the kids on and watching them grow, both physically and mentally. As an undergraduate student I spent a summer teaching in Miami at a program designed to close the opportunity gap for high schoolers. I taught five courses, each with about 30 students, in 9th/10th grade English, social studies, and public speaking. Now, in addition to my MPA graduate studies and working at Princeton Tutoring, I volunteer as a tutor in the Futuro mentoring program for recent immigrants, where I tutor students in high school English and Algebra.
My academic experience has primarily focused on the social sciences, English/writing/humanities, and test prep. As a high schooler I was the first person in my high school to take AP Literature during freshman year, and took eight writing intensive courses at Michigan State University. Last year I completed my undergraduate studies at Princeton where I majored in the WWS Public Policy School and focused on international migration and gender equity. I am continuing those studies at the graduate level focusing on domestic immigration policy and gender equity, and plan to become a civil litigator one day. Reading and writing are so important for every discipline and profession, so it is a joy helping students achieve their goals in these areas.
