I’m a rising sophomore at Tufts University, considering majors/double majors in Political Science, American Studies, and International Relations with a possible minor in Asian American Studies. In the fall, I will be a Host Advisor the Tufts' Global Orientation, a pre-orientation program for incoming freshmen.

In high school, I worked with elementary school students and tutored them in English and Reading. I was also the head of my school’s Debate and 21st Century Forum Clubs. 21st Century Forum is a club that facilitates weekly discussions on social justice and diversity-related issues.

At Tufts, I am a part of the Debate club and also a part of Generation Citizen, which is a non-profit organization that works with college students and places them at local middle and high schools. I taught action civics at a local high school and mentored and guided students with identifying problems that they saw in their local communities and with creating a project that tackled the issue of their choice. As a part of Generation Citizen and through teaching my class, I have been able to sharpen my teaching and interpersonal skills.

My favorite subject to tutor in is essay writing. I really enjoy tutoring in essay writing because I enjoy reading the variety of and diverse ideas that students have when they write their essays. I’m excited about tutoring in essay writing because I love seeing students gain more confidence and have more fun with their writing. I, myself, initially struggled with my writing skills throughout my time in high school. However, as I have improved my own writing skills and have better learned to write stronger and more persuasive essays, I have also had more interest and more confidence when I’m writing. I want to help students gain not only more confidence with their writing so that they can better identify the issues that they see in their writing and also gain more independence and ownership over what they write, but also more fun and desire to experiment with writing, writing styles, personal expression, and persuasive arguments. Writing skills are always important and I want to help students with bolstering these skills that will be necessary for them in and out of the classroom.

I also attended a private school and have experience with practicing for and taking the ISEE, so I am also happy to tutor in that subject as well. I have also taken the SAT and would also be willing to tutor in SAT preparation as well.
