Princeton University
AP Scholar with Distinction and High Ranking GPA award
Throughout high school I participated in mentoring programs for incoming freshman which included helping them acclimate to high school both socially and academically. I also joined a class that focused on tutoring Algebra students. Most of these students had failed their math classes in middle school and were not always open to being helped. Through both that experience and my AP and upper level classes, I’ve interacted with all different types of students and I’ve found that I can successfully communicate with both sides of the spectrum. With the experience of working with lower achieving students and having to constantly come up with new explanations for concepts, I gained a skill that I can apply to any tutoring situation. I always try to understand where the student is coming from in their misunderstanding and adapt my explanation to fit them specifically. I most enjoy tutoring math and physics, and in my free time I read and spend time with my friends and siblings. I am planning on earning a degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering.

I am a motivated and compassionate student here at Princeton University and I am very excited about tutoring new students. My experiences working as a counselor at Badger Boys State (BBS) have shown me how fun it can be to work with high achieving high school students and demonstrates my capacity to do so effectively. I have been a counselor for a week long youth leadership program for three years, and each year I learn more about myself as well as about how to make a learning environment fun and inclusive. I love the outdoors and exploring new places. I enjoy traveling and have been very lucky to have gone on a number of international trips; taking a gap year in Senegal was by far the most powerful of such experiences. My time traveling has sparked a desire in me to learn as much as possible about others and to try to understand things from their perspective, and its probably why I've gotten interested in anthropology here at school! I'm also very interested in sustainability. I grew up off-grid on an organic permaculture farm in Wisconsin so ideas about sustainable living have been floating around my head since I was little.

My teaching experiences range from private tutoring for math, reading, piano practice, and music theory to developing my own teaching curriculum to teach English in Taiwan while working with Americans Dedicated to Voluntary English Teaching (ADVENT) this past summer. I am also involved in general college counseling and helping with personal statements. My goal as a tutor is to help students gain a comprehensive understanding of topics so that they can use the knowledge to their advantage. Outside of tutoring, I enjoy photography, traveling, hiking, and skiing. I am also very passionate about the arts and have played piano for more than fifteen years and participate in theater. My future career goals involve working with nonprofits and potentially in the media industry.
Rutgers University
National Merit Scholar, Best Delegate, Distinguished Delegate, Honorable Mayoral Volunteer Award, AP Scholar
I am currently studying in Rutgers University and pursuing my dream of one day opening an artificial intelligence software company. I enjoy dancing, cooking, watching science fiction television series, and I LOVE traveling! Throughout the past five years, I have tutored over 250 students, and what I have learned from all these experiences is this: unique situations require unique solutions. Whether it be students with different thinking styles or families with different needs, I have been able to adapt to the situation and not only teach my students but also learn from them.

One of my favorite musicians and comedians of all time is Victor Borge, who once said, "A smile is the shortest distance between two people." And to me, laughter is an even more intimate smile. Whenever I meet people for the first time, I try to ease the tension that comes with making friends by trying to make them laugh. I believe that one of my purposes in life is to make people laugh because laughter is something that helps us understand each other, despite our differences. And I embody this attitude when I teach and tutor as well. I find so much joy in helping a student unlock his or her potential, and I think laughter is an integral part of that. I once tutored a student in AP Biology. Her strength was not science, but she wanted to challenge herself that year. I admired her grit and her willingness to attack a challenge head-on. I still remember a mnemonic device that we developed to help her remember the lac operon: Beta-galactosidase breaks lactose down into lactose and galactose. We imagined an outer-space war between milk people and aliens and magic swords. The image is very vivid and humorous, and neither of us have forgotten it. But I do believe it was the fun and laughter that we shared that caused her to improve exponentially in the class and actually begin to enjoy the material. This is the type of experience I hope to enjoy with my students. And I am very much looking forward to engaging with students who can take advantage of my approach to academics.
