Hi! I'm Nala, and I was born and raised in New York City. I'm studying computer science at Princeton and hope to pursue a career in computational research. In addition to my math and CS coursework, I enjoy taking classes in literature and philosophy. In my free time, I like to read, hike, cook, and be with friends.
As someone who genuinely enjoys math, I know all too well how frustrating the subject can be, and a big part of why I started tutoring was to help people engage with that challenge without getting discouraged. I absolutely believe that with the right attitude and support system (that's what I'm here for!), anybody can do well in math.
