Hi! I'm a rising sophomore at UC Berkeley intending to major in Cognitive Science and minor in Education. I love teaching, both as a career and a hobby, and have five years of formal teaching experience from working as a private tutor, counseling at summer camps, teaching Sunday school, and volunteering at after-school programs in Berkeley and Oakland.

I have never been an everything-comes-natural-to-me kind of student and had to work for my skills. I enjoy tutoring because I was in the same spot and I seek to bring out the best in students that just need a little push. I am a firm believer that a student can always find a way to make a topic interesting and that any student can master something if they are willing to work with a mentor who believes in them.

I enjoy running, surfing, playing the piano, learning every game ever (board, card, sport, or lawn), and competing with the Cal Quidditch team (yes, it's a thing) -- recently traveling to Kissimmee, FL to be ranked 24th out of 154 at the national tournament. I also edit for the Berkeley Undergraduate Journal because I love reading what happens when someone geeks out about something they love!

Best wishes!
