I am a recent graduate of the University of Chicago, where I completed bachelors degrees in both Mathematics and Physics. I have a lifelong love of math and science that I truly enjoy sharing with others. To that end, I have been involved in various teaching and tutoring positions since high school. In particular, I have worked for several years as a mathematics teaching assistant at the Young Scholars Program and the Collegiate Scholars Program, two summer programs for Chicago-area high school students. I also have several years of experience working with students in a one-on-one setting, from test prep to homework help and everything in between!

I am comfortable working with any student, regardless of their mathematical background and ability, and I strongly believe that deep understanding of abstract mathematical concepts is attainable by anyone - all thats needed is curiosity and willingness to learn. That being said, its part of my goal as a tutor to not only impart knowledge and understanding, but to also spark interest and instill confidence. I know first-hand the distress and feeling of being lost that can come with learning an unfamiliar or challenging topic, so I prioritize building a solid foundation of knowledge before pushing on to new ideas.

I am currently involved in astrophysics research with a professor at the University of Chicago and am in the process of applying to graduate school. Outside of teaching and learning math and physics, I enjoy thinking about philosophy, politics, history, and music. On weekends, you might find me running or biking along the lakefront, working on various musical projects, or reading a book.
