For over five years, I tutored high school mathematics, SAT/ACT test prep, and essay-writing privately and with the Columbia University Tutoring and Translating Agency. During the past school year, I worked as a teaching artist for grades 5-7 in many New York schools, through LEAP (Learning through an Expanded Arts Program) and MakerState....
