Hello! I'm Katie, and I'm from Budd Lake, New Jersey. I have done many hours of online tutoring and after-school tutoring in the past years, and I also enjoy helping my brother and peers in my free time. I've played violin for 13 years, and I have given violin lessons and have found them to be super rewarding - it's amazing to be able to share a wonderful art with different people and cultivate appreciation! I most enjoy tutoring math, and I sometimes find SAT math to be very fun to do because they're like puzzles! In the future, I am thinking of a mix of STEM and music-related careers, and in my free time, I love to read and sleep.

At Princeton, I worked as a teaching assistant for the intensive summer study-abroad course in Marine Biology at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences, where I taught precepts about species identification, lab reports, and data analysis, and gave a full-length lecture on cephalopods. As part of my duties I also organized in-lab exercises and field work, assisted in writing and grading quizzes, exams and lab reports. I was chosen from the previous year’s students by the professors for having “the perfect combination of marine interests, intellectual abilities, and social skills.” I also worked as a Physics 101 tutor at Princeton's McGraw Center for Learning, and I was recommended by a professor to become a writing advisor at Princeton's Writing Center. In the year after I graduated from Princeton, I taught English at a K-12 boarding school in Southern Thailand in a fishing village that was devastated by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. There I learned a lot about teaching, student-teacher relationships, and about myself. It was an incredible experience, and I miss my students every day. I hope to return to Thailand to visit some of my star pupils and see how they have progressed since I left! During my time teaching in Thailand I was blessed with the opportunity to travel extensively throughout Asia and learn a lot about Southeast Asian cultures in particular. I hope to return to Thailand, or move to Hong Kong, my birthplace, and work for an environmental NGO to contribute to mounting efforts to control climate change/marine degradation.

As a first generation student, I was taught by my mother that education makes the greatest impact on anybody’s life. Through my mother, having had no formal education, I witnessed the struggle a lack of education can cause, but I thank my mom for instilling in me an endless love for learning. As I went through primary education, my mother did as well, right by my side. We tutored each other and spent countless hours over grammar and math worksheets, trying new techniques that stuck and made sense. My mother wasn’t just being a good mom, but she was my peer, my best friend, and my mentor. With her, I realized not only how important education is, but how valuable and necessary an individualized education is. I tutored kids of all ages frequently in high school with a variety of organizations, and I loved being part of their educational journey. My work background and coursework have supplied me with many skills and an understanding of dealing with the adolescent community. As an enthusiastic Princeton undergraduate, I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to tutor in the Princeton area! I look forward to working with students to develop an individualized approach by drawing upon their strengths and formulating a personalized path to their education. I enjoy tutoring math and science the most, as I am a Neuroscience major. Aside from school, I love to bike, do yoga, and work with artistic mediums.

I've been tutoring since middle school in Brazil. In high school I was chosen to tutor my peers, tutor for Math and Sciences Olympiads, and to act as an assistant in math classes. I started private tutoring during the end of my high school career, and I kept tutoring during college, specially for the Brazilian College admission exams. I love tutoring because I can share my passion for knowledge with my students, and it is very rewarding to see that passion being transmitted. To do that, I am very committed to understanding the students' needs and interests. By getting to know my students, I can make him or her understand the importance of what is being studied. I enjoy figure skating, piano playing, and arts in general. I am working to build a research career to develop the way we can mathematically model human behavior.

I am currently a global affairs professional working for a political action non-profit organization in Princeton. I also occasionally write for a feminist foreign policy blog. I have prior experience tutoring elementary and high-school aged children, with a focus on grammar, reading comprehension, writing, history, politics, and standardized test prep. I love literature of all varieties, and I try to travel as much as possible!
