Hi! I’m Simran, and I’m originally from Boston, Massachusetts. At Princeton, I study Sociology, Chinese, and am on the Pre-Medical track. In the past, I have helped students prepare for the ACT, and I also have experience tutoring in Biology, Chemistry, SSAT, and English. While tutoring, I aim to not only help students learn and understand the material but also to develop study techniques that work for them. Most importantly, I try to make learning enjoyable, such that students become more invested in their work and inclined to delve into the material in their own time. In my free time, I love watching movies, going to the gym, listening to music, and spending time with friends. I am so excited to tutor for Princeton Tutoring, and I look forward to getting to know each student I work with!
