Throughout my academic career I have frequently found myself in the role of teacher, whether it be formally tutoring fellow students or simply guiding my four younger siblings through frustrating homework assignments. In my senior year of high school I volunteered as a Peer Tutor, helping freshmen and sophomores with their writing and coursework in English, Biology, Chemistry, History and Math.
I went to a small Jewish private school, and took a gap year before Princeton to study Judaic texts intensively in Israel. At Princeton I am concentrating in Evolutionary Biology (which has been a lifelong passion) but also love exploring philosophy, politics and poetry. I spent the past summer as a Field Assistant on an island in Panama, conducting research on cooperative breeding in tropical birds.
I find teaching deeply satisfying, and am always inspired by the determination of the students. I am patient, caring, creative, reliable and get really excited about learning. I hope to bring all of those skills to bear to connect with students and make my sessions interesting, engaging and effective.
