Hi! I’m Ro. I’m a graduate of Princeton University, where I studied Comparative Literature, with a focus on French, Italian and Russian. I’m from the Netherlands, and I’ve been tutoring since high school, working with students from elementary school through college across a wide range of subjects. In college, I mainly tutored English and other languages, but I was also involved in other subjects. For Princeton’s high school Science Olympiad invitational, for example, I wrote test materials and helped run the ecology section. I especially enjoy working with students to help them develop their own study skills, so that they can continue working independently after tutoring.
