I am a first year student at Columbia University in New York City, pursuing my B.A. in Political Science with prospective minors in East Asian Studies and Human Rights. I grew up in Berkeley, California, and graduated Berkeley High School in 2015 with the International Baccalaureate Diploma. I became interested in tutoring during my own personal college application process, and when I came to Columbia, I joined Matriculate, a non-profit start-up that provides free college advising to low-income, high-achieving students. I encourage students to reach beyond their own expectations and I believe each and every student can succeed in any subject with the right amount of attention. I believe that Varsity Tutors is a great resource for every type of student, and it's fantastic to be part of the team.

Q & A
How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?
I have found that students who are struggling in a subject have had poor teachers. I personally believe that students that are struggling need more personal attention rather than remedial instruction, so I try to tailor the subject to the student's interest in order to make it more fun and enjoyable.
