I love being able to help students excel in their classes and see their progress while tutoring them. I started tutoring in high school, and I've continued in college because it helps me stay connected with learning techniques and helps others grasp concepts that I have personally experienced difficulty with in the past. I have trained most extensively in high school math and SAT prep, but I enjoy tutoring languages, history, and science as well. I am very passionate about learning languages since I speak Polish, Spanish, French, and German. When I'm not studying or working, I enjoy hiking and traveling around the world. A personal favorite adventure of mine was hiking the Inca Trail in Peru a few years ago.

National Merit Scholar, Bronfman Fellow
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.

I come from a close-knit family that values education as well as collaboration. This is where my passion for tutoring comes from. Throughout high school I helped run my school's tutoring program, and it was an activity I found very fulfilling and meaningful. I felt a personal investment in my students' achievements, which translated into their improvement and success. My areas of expertise include history (US and European), chemistry, math, and standardized testing, but I'm always looking for ways to broaden my horizons!

Hey! I'm Sarah, and I'm currently studying history at Princeton. I'm from Brooklyn, New York, and I love reading good fantasy books and working on my art (by which, okay, I mean adult coloring books, but no judging)! I've always loved tutoring, and I've spent the past three summers designing curricula and teaching summer classes to high school students. My favorite subjects are history and art history, but I have experience teaching everything from chemistry, biology, and earth science to Jewish Philosophy. I've also spent a few years now tutoring students for the SAT and ACT. When I was a high school student, I tried to make the SAT fun for myself. When I came across a particularly interesting reading passage, I would go to the local library and read the whole book the passage originated from. I know, a little nerdy, but I did find good books that way. I've also worked as a camp counselor and a special needs therapist, and I love connecting with, helping, and learning from everyone I can. I find tutoring to be a great way to do this!

AP Scholar with Distinction, All-State Track and Field Athlete, High School Spanish Excellence Award
Hi, I'm Isabel and I'm a junior in the History department at Princeton. I'm also pursuing a certificate in American Studies to study America and the making of a citizen, through the academic intersections of philosophy, sociology, politics and history. This summer I was abroad in South Africa taking a course in consulting and working at Accenture. The experience was wonderful because I got to spend time outdoors hiking and surfing, while also learning something at the same time!
