Hi! I’m Nina, a recent Princeton graduate with a degree in Physics, and I’m looking forward to continuing my research in computational astrophysics in graduate school. Studying physics has helped me to develop a broad set of problem-solving strategies through an understanding of fundamental principles, and has given me plenty of opportunities to collaborate with other students. I have served as an undergraduate T.A. for Princeton’s introductory physics classes, and have worked with Princeton Tutoring since 2019. My subject expertise ranges from math and physics to test preparation. I’m very happy to be able to share my experience by working with Princeton Tutoring!
When I’m not studying, I enjoy drawing, reading, and (most of all) exploring the beautiful outdoors!
