I grew up in the Los Angeles area, attending the John Thomas Dye School for elementary school and Harvard-Westlake School for middle and high school. After graduating cum laude from Princeton, I spent a year teaching English at a university in northern Thailand. During my time abroad, I taught English grammar, writing, speaking, listening, and reading skills to students who ranged from ages 16 to 25. I am also comfortable working with younger age groups. I have previous experience with teaching elementary school children in China, running an English class during summer breaks while I was in college. My own personal studies heavily involve the hard sciences and Chinese, so I also tutor for those seeking help with learning Mandarin or the sciences, especially biology. Finally, I can relate to and connect with students from a variety of backgrounds on a personal level, which I feel greatly improves the learning process . I have a genuine desire to persevere in the hopes of seeing each student experience that "lightbulb moment" where everything truly clicks.
