The foundation of teaching is, undoubtedly, communication. Given my international history, attending eight schools across three continents before attending Princeton, paired with my academic study of theatre, I have always been passionate about education and exploring what makes an effective communicator.
My outlook on education is deeply rooted in customizing the learning experience to each studentâ€™s unique interests and objectives; it is essential to listen to the studentâ€™s needs while understanding exactly how his or her mind best processes information. As a tutor, I feel it is my responsibility to ensure that a student does not simply regurgitate the information, but internalizes it to the point where he or she is genuinely stimulated by and excited about the material.
In my spare time, I find myself performing or directing for the theatre, making music, or swimming.
