I have worked as a teaching assistant of Math 155r (Combinatorics) at Harvard University, where I got my B.A. in Applied Mathematics in 2017, and will be teaching (most likely) Calculus starting in the fall of 2017, while I begin my Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. I have worked as a tutor (ranging from middle school to high school/SAT math) since 2010, and have also enjoyed tutoring other subjects, such as SAT English, physics, and chemistry. I am extremely invested in making challenging topics less intimidating and am happy to work with students of all levels!

I have worked as a math tutor since 2010, and really enjoy working with students to help find contexts that make mathematics more understandable and relatable. Further, I am personally very interested in mathematics, since I will be working in math research/teaching as a graduate student.

I became proficient in French in 2013 following high school, after which I have maintained proficiency by taking upper-level French courses and taking part in immersive experiences such as working for French-speaking families. Since I grew up a native English speaker, I understand the difficulties that come with learning a new language, and am excited to help people work through these challenges and enjoy the benefits of multilingualism.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions at all! I am also happy to provide teaching reviews that my past students have given me.
