Hi! My name is Akhil; I'm from Bethel Park, PA, and through my school's NHS tutoring program I coached students in a wide range of subject matter and helped students who faced difficulties in a variety of courses, including various levels of Math, Chemistry, Physics, Reading, Writing, and SAT/ACT prep. I have also enjoyed tutoring TOEFL/IELTS students. I love tutoring because of the insight it helps me gain and refine while helping those I teach. Through my teaching experiences, I enjoyed adapting my methods of instruction and tailoring my teaching to each students' needs. The versatility and subjectivity of the teaching and learning experience is something I truly value. In my spare time, I play tennis, read, and tutor. As far as a career path goes, I'm currently thinking of becoming an engineer or a management consultant (two very different fields, I know). Fun fact about me: I know five languages!

I love tutoring because I am passionate about learning and spreading that joy to the people around me. I have a lot of teaching and tutoring experience; in addition to tutoring my peers in English throughout high school and assisting students with their college applications, I taught taekwondo to kids of a wide range of ages. This experience as an instructor was fantastic and inspiring. I loved cheering the kids on and watching them grow, both physically and mentally. It was an exciting challenge to adapt my teaching methods to each individual child’s learning style, while still commanding the attention of a raucous crowd of thirty kids all yelling and kicking away. Parents often thanked me personally for my instruction, telling me how much their children’s confidence had grown since I started teaching them. In terms of academic experience, I love literature and the social sciences in particular, and I love working with people. I studied society and politics in Israel and Turkey throughout two summers with Michigan State University. I was the first person in my high school to take AP Literature during freshman year, and since then, I have taken eight upper-level courses at Michigan State University, most of which were writing intensive courses. Reading and writing are so important for every discipline and profession, so it is a joy helping students achieve their goals in these areas. I'm currently majoring in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public Policy, and I'm considering careers in psychology, law, and education.

My tutoring career began during high school when I took a course on violin pedagogy and went on to start my own studio. However, it was through two summer trips during college teaching English in rural China that I really found myself drawn to academic teaching. Upon returning to campus, I began tutoring Chinese and music theory through Princeton’s residential college tutoring program. I spent my first year out of college completing an editorial fellowship with The Wall Street Journal in Hong Kong, followed by a stint writing in the Taiwanese mountains. I’ve since returned to Chicago and resumed tutoring. While my hope is to build a career in the writing world, tutoring in all subjects remains a passion. I enjoy helping others communicate more smoothly, whether in another language or on the page, and it is always a joy to be able to tailor a curriculum around a specific student's needs. I also appreciate the perspective new learners bring to any subject, as it challenges me to take a fresh look at long-accepted ideas or concepts.

I have long thought that the best study skills stem from creativity and imagination. My sophomore year of high school, I took a demanding class called Western Civilization, which we traced the history of politics, music, and art in Western Europe from 800 BCE to the present day. I only did well in that class because I developed a system of mapping out big events that involved drawing pictures and color-coding big historic themes. Tests are puzzles, and we have to create customized and imaginative modes of solving them. I have tutored high school students in the Princeton area in such topics as SAT and ACT (all subjects), reading comprehension, memorization skills for History and Biology, and essay writing. I plan to go into journalism after I graduate, and continue performing with vocal ensembles in a semi-professional capacity.

Hi! I'm Houston, and I'm a junior at Princeton University! I have been a camp counselor for many years, I am involved in a mentorship program at Princeton, my parents are both educators, and now I'm looking forwarding to continuing to work with children and young adults. I am very comfortable with any math subject a student may encounter in high school and most introductory college math courses. My favorite subject to tutor would have to be computer science because I absolutely love the subject and have already started tutoring my brother in it. I hope to combine my love for computer science and my financial engineering skills to go into the finance or investment sector after college. I'm already beginning to work towards that goal through my project on a machine learning stock price prediction program this summer. That just about sums up who I am and where I'm at in a paragraph! Can't wait to start working with your children!
