As a graduate in Chemical and Biological Engineering from Princeton University, I strive to be in the service of humanity and one way I believe I can give back to the community is as a tutor for future generations of scholars. As such, I am confident in my ability to enlighten students on the subjects of Physics, Algebra, Calculus, Biology, Chemistry, Literature and History. In doing so, I share my love of learning and work tirelessly with my students to help them conquer these fundamental subjects by bringing these alien topics into a real world context.

I know how valuable an extraordinary tutor can be in the molding of a student’s mindset towards education. When I was in the fourth grade, I used to despise math not because it was hard but because it seemed boring and to me, a waste of time. However, thanks to Math Monkey Tutoring, who taught me tricks to simplify mathematic equations and turned learning into a game, I developed a newfound love for the subject and pursued engineering as a result, completing my senior thesis at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, where I worked for 1.5 years.

I believe that every student has the potential to master any subject as long as there is someone willing to breakdown the difficult content into relatable, manageable concepts, providing support and encouragement to the student. I assist my students to push their limits and never let their apprehension towards a topic hold them back from success, expanding their horizons to different career paths they would not have thought of otherwise.

Additionally, I am passionate about understanding and relieving individuals of pain caused through mental illness and interested in pursuing a career in psychiatry. While attending Princeton, I was on the Princeton Cheerleading team, a volunteer for Kindred Hospice as well as the Social Chair of the Princeton Charter Club. In these positions, I further enhanced my teamwork, compassion, patience, dedication, organization and time management skills, integrating these crucial values into a unique tutoring style. A style in which I encourage a student to shed their insecurities, whether towards the subject or the notion of having a tutor, and nurture their natural ingenuity to grasp even the most arduous of topics. With every problem that must be solved, I believe there is an element of fun and creativity that is essential for capturing a student’s interest and aiding their eventual mastery of a subject.
