Hi there! I'm an undergraduate at Princeton University, planning to major in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. I'm also pursuing a certificate in Creative Writing. On campus, I write for The Daily Princetonian and work for the Office of Disability Services. I love tutoring because it gives me the opportunity to help others learn and have fun! In particular, I most enjoy tutoring in the humanities, standardized tests, Spanish, and psychology, but I am happy to help with all subjects. I spent the past summer working at a day camp and loved the experience of interacting with kids of all ages, teaching them or a thing or two, and learning from them myself! Outside of academics, some of my favorite activities are writing, reading, and running. I'm originally from Cleveland, Ohio.

Young Entrepreneurs at Haas Fellow, National Honors Society, 2nd Place Haas School of Business Venture Capital Competition, 1st Place YEAH Consulting Competition, Oakland Zoo
My name is Isaiah, and I grew up in Fairfield California. I am currently an undergrad student at Princeton University. During my time in high school, I spent a great deal of time creating programs to help mentor other high school and middle school students. For the past three years, I taught at the Haas School of Business leading a course teaching the basics of entrepreneurship and helping students bring their simulated ideas to the real market. Part of the course also included a college immersion program in which I helped students craft college essays and generally aided them in their academic endeavors. I also founded a high school mentorship program that helped increase my high school's college acceptance rate by 12%. I find tutoring and mentoring to be one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had the privilege to take part in. My favorite subjects to tutor are Biology, Math, History, and Philosophy-- I enjoy helping students hone their critical thinking and writing skills. I really look forward to helping more students this year!

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.

QuestBridge College Match Scholar, AP Scholar, QuestBridge College Prep Scholarship, Academic Achievement Award, Block F Achievement Award, UC Davis Outstanding Community Service Award, Distinguished WildCat, Franklin Gold Community Service Award, Franklin Silver Community Service Award, Franklin Bronze Community Service Award
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.
