I spent my high school career deeply committed to theater. I am now very excited to be an active member of the theater community on Princeton’s campus. I need rehearsal, be it for Fuzzy Dice Improv or Oscar Wilde’s masterful farce, The Importance of Being Earnest. I crave the break theater and performance bring from academics. In a more general sense, art, both visual and performing, is of chief importance in my life. I am a writer and art editor for the Nassau Literary Review at Princeton. And, again, meeting over dinner with my peers in NassLit is a necessary creative outlet in my life. Not only I am a firm believer that a full schedule is a productive schedule, but I also see involvement in the arts the best way for myself to remain happy, healthy, and aware as a human being. Everyone needs something (or many things) precious to themselves aside from grades and GPA. That being said, I love being a student at Princeton. I am through and through a “humanities gal.” My favorite and best subjects in high school have always been History and English. AP Lang had a profound impact on my academic career. I was suddenly aware of this whole new kind of art form, removed from theme, motif, and character analysis. Understanding the art of rhetoric helped me rediscover and redefine my passion for writing. AP Art History was by far my favorite high school course. I fell in love with its visual approach to history. A single painting can communicate an entire political, social, and cultural environment. My academic strengths include textual and/or historical analysis, in addition to the consolidation of said analysis, into my writing. I am honored to be entrusted with the role of tutor. I really respect the art of teaching. In high school, I worked as a private tutor and, later, as an English teaching assistant for rising 7th and 8th graders through a program designed to provide low-income, high-achieving middle school students with the tools necessary to gain access to a four-year college. My largest challenge was what it means “to teach,” rather than “to tell.” Teaching is hard work and it requires committed practice, introspection, and revision.

My name is Henry and I hail from sunny California (San Jose, to be exact). I've tutored and taught a variety of subjects over the last five years, including: Computer Science, Writing, Speech & Debate, Entrepreneurship, and Math. As a tutor, I'm always extremely rewarded by that "Aha!" moment when my students take grasp of new concepts and realize their significance. I also always make an effort to emphasize the practical applications of the subject we're working on, as I find that this often sparks new interests that make the subject even more engaging. I'm fascinated by the startup world, and hope to use the skills I develop at Princeton to develop autonomous transportation post-graduation. While I'm not caught up with schoolwork, I love backpacking, playing guitar, watching sitcoms, and keeping up with the aviation industry. I look forward to meeting you!

Hello! My name is Min Ji, and I am a prospective Neuroscience major at Princeton University. I was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea and grew up speaking three languages from an early age: English, Korean, and Chinese. I really love tutoring; it is the most rewarding thing to be able to share my knowledge of the subjects I love with students and to potentially make a difference in the lives of the students I teach. It is such a joy to be able to be the guidance that someone else needs in his or her life, and there is nothing that makes me happier than being of service to those who really need me. My favorite subjects are biology and chemistry, but I love tutoring math, the sciences, and the humanities as well. Outside of school hours, I love traveling, designing, reading novels, and baking, and I'd like to become a travel food journalist someday.

Gordon F. Smith Athlete of The Year Award, Dartmouth College Book Award, Community Service Award, English Award, Quest bridge Match Scholar, AP Scholar with Distinction, High Honors
In high school, I had the honor of visiting a local inner city Kindergarten class with my Community Service Club (which I co-chaired for two years). Many of the children that we interacted with were very underprivileged, but these children were eager to learn, and this loving environment really opened my heart. More recently, I had the pleasure of tutoring a local high school student who was struggling with math. I loved watching this particular student improve and learn new approaches to problem solving as our tutoring sessions progressed. Apart from a deep interest in using education as a means of social reform, I have a love for forming new connections with people that are willing to learn (and perhaps will teach me in return!). I love tutoring because it is an opportunity to disseminate knowledge and perhaps help make the world a better place. I love to write poetry and read high fiction. A few other interests include cooking, distance running, swimming, and knitting.

I'm Lily, and I'm an undergraduate at Princeton University who loves playing Broadway show tunes on the piano, attempting to take my 300 pound pig on walks, and eating my way through my travels abroad. I hope to attend medical school following graduation, although I do not know exactly what career path I'd like to follow. My interests range from neurology and dermatology to genetics and infectious diseases. I discovered my love for medicine when I traveled to Peru for a service learning trip where I worked in a medical clinic for 2 weeks assisting doctors. I continue to pursue this passion by volunteering at Ranken Jordan Pediatric Hospital. I love tutoring because it allows me to give students study tips, advice, and knowledge that I wish I'd had in middle school or high school. I have a passion for learning that I want to share with others. For me, seeing a student's improvement from week to week is the most rewarding part of tutoring!
