Gold Honor Roll, Diversity Day Forum Co-President, Second Chair Violinist in High School Orchestra, State Diving Champion
Hi! My name is Katrin, and I am from Evergreen, Colorado. Some of my favorite activities include hiking, playing the violin, diving, and traveling. At Princeton, I am continuing to dive on the Varsity Swim and Dive team. In high school and middle school, tutoring played a large role in my life; not only did I reach out to my peers and upperclassmen for occasional help in courses, but I also had the privilege of tutoring others through the National Honor Society. I tutored freshmen, sophomores and juniors several times a week on assignments and classes that they were struggling with. I would also regularly help my younger brother with his school work. I especially enjoyed tutoring math and English/writing. I am so excited to continue tutoring, here, through Princeton Tutoring. I look forward to meeting you!

AP Scholar with Distinction, National Merit Commended Student, General Excellence Award (9, 10, 11, 12), Fr. Downey Award for Public Speaking
I'm very excited to be tutoring with Princeton Tutoring and to continue mentoring students both academically and personally. While a junior and senior at Regis High School, I was selected to tutor in the school’s German and Math Resource Centers. The Petey Greene Program for Incarcerated Persons has also expanded the range of students I have instructed. Volunteering once a week at a nearby correctional facility, I work one-on-one with inmates pursuing their GEDs, specifically tutoring them in middle- and high-school level math and economics. Since these individuals come from a range of educational backgrounds, my work with the Petey Greene Program has trained me to quickly assess the needs of the specific individual I am working with and to modify my tutoring plans accordingly. When tutoring I draw on these skills and relate to students on a personal level in order to make our sessions both instructive and enjoyable.

Since entering high school, I have found tutoring to be immensely gratifying. My most memorable tutoring experience is from my freshman year of high school, when I tutored students from Haiti in English through Skype. During these tutoring sessions, we discussed their goals in life which included studying in America, becoming doctors, and supporting their families. After this, I realized how important my role as a tutor was in facilitating my students' learning and success, and I was inspired to expand my tutoring efforts. I also organized SAT tutoring workshops at the East Orange Public Library. My one-on-one tutoring experiences have come from helping students who had trouble speaking English with a variety of subjects through my high school's ESL program. I also tutored a fifth grader in writing and a rising freshman in Geometry the summer before starting college among others. Therefore, my strengths are tutoring SAT skills and knowledge, science, and any level of math, as math has always come naturally to me. Throughout high school, I was the president of the Math Club and earned first place in several competitions such as the AMTNJ High School Mathematics Contest. In addition to math, I am passionate about science and technology and am considering a career in medicine.

Valedictorian, National Merit Finalist, U.S. Presidential Scholars Program candidate, National AP Scholar, NJ Governor's School in the Sciences, President's Volunteer Service Award, National FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) Winner in Business Math, State DECA winner in Finance, USA Synchronized Figure Skating (Team Member), NJ Council of Figure Skating Clubs' Academic Honors Team (Member), Varsity Letter Winner (Soccer, 3 Years)
Hi! My name is Sophia and I hail from Rockaway, NJ (a suburb in northern Jersey). I am currently pursuing an Operations Research and Financial Engineering degree at Princeton University and was the valedictorian of my high school - Morris County's Academy for Mathematics, Science, and Engineering. After college, I am planning to pursue a career in finance and investment banking on Wall Street. I like tutoring, because I sincerely enjoy working with other students and I love helping other students to reach their full potentials. I am the oldest child in my immediate and extended family, so I have been unofficially helping my younger brother and cousins with their schoolwork for as long as I can remember. I also have extensive prior tutoring experience. Since I was in the eighth grade, I worked as a math and reading tutor at Kumon Education. Furthermore, I volunteered as a TA for the past four years at the Morris Chinese Academy. There, I worked with mostly elementary school age children to help them master Mandarin Chinese language and culture, and I was so well liked by the students and teachers alike that I was promoted to the Student Executive Board. Additionally, I have developed strong interpersonal skills by working as an ice skating coach for the past year at the local ice rink and a camp counselor for the last four summers at my town’s summer recreation camp for local children in grades K-8. Math has always been my favorite and strongest subject in school, and as such, I am most comfortable tutoring math, ranging from elementary school all the way up to multivariable calculus. I achieved a perfect 2400 on the SAT, and I would definitely also love to tutor other students on the SAT and the SAT math subject tests. I am a FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) national winner in Business Math. Outside of academics, I am a competitive figure skater. I have been skating since I was 4 years old and was a member of the Team USA Synchronized Skating Team in high school, and I represented the USA at the prestigious Spring Cup international synchronized skating competition in Milan, Italy in February 2014. I am also a U.S. Figure Skating gold medalist in moves-in-the-field and ice dance. I am now a member of the skating team at Princeton University. Since coming to college, I have become a big fan of running and yoga/pilates. You can frequently catch me on the treadmill or at a PiYo class during my free time!

Outside of class, I am a distance runner training to qualify for the Boston Marathon. I also sail, ski, kayak, play tennis, play squash, and will be doing my first triathlon in the spring. I spend an equal amount of my free time learning new languages - in addition to English, I speak French fluently, have taken Italian and German at Princeton, and am in the process of teaching myself basic Dutch, Swedish, Portuguese, and Romanian. Pottery and analog photography are my creative breaks from preparations for medical and graduate school, which have included a research and development internship for a group of cardiac electrophysiologists and time spent running a hematology bench for a blood testing company. I plan to pursue a dual degree with my MD in cardiothoracic surgery and my PhD in biomedical engineering. I love to travel and am currently co-authoring two books, one cookbook and one English-language grammar manual.
