More About Me
|I have always loved teaching, whether through casual tutoring or formal teaching. I enjoy seeing a student’s satisfaction as they observe their own progression and see how much they have accomplished. I also think that learning nowadays can feel very burdensome rather than exciting as it should be, and I enjoy finding creative ways to make topics fascinating again. Because some teachers have really changed the way I think about things, I know it is possible to help others do the same.
For fun, I love rock climbing, longboarding, drawing, cooking, researching, or challenging myself. I would love to help others explore their interests outside of school as well.

I have experience teaching a wide range of students, from young kids to college students. I have been a biochemistry teaching assistant, a figure skating instructor, a piano teacher, and have experience tutoring biology and essay writing. My main goal as an instructor is to learn what works best for the student and tailor my teaching style to their needs.
Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience
I volunteered with Cornell Circle K with service opportunities such as journaling programs for the incarcerated. I also learned much of my ability to adapt, my patience, and compassion alongside patients while volunteering at a hospital. I am now with Americorps as a VIP Fellow with the Pacific Symphony to establish more opportunities with music.
