I am currently a Harvard student majoring in Computer Science with a minor in Applied Mathematics. I graduated Class Valedictorian in high school and was named National Merit Finalist. I took 16 AP classes in high school, including AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, AP Computer Science A, AP Physics C : Mechanics and AP Physics 1, with a score of 5 in all of the tests. I scored a 1570/1600 in my SAT and 800 in the SAT Math Level 2 Subject Test and 790 in the SAT Physics Subject Test.

I am very passionate about math and computer science. I would like to share my knowledge in the subject matter with students who have yet to discover the beauty and the power of quantitative and analytical abilities. I am patient and look forward to empowering others to learn and understand.

At Harvard, I have taken CS50, CS51, Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra and Differential Equations, and a very cool class called Celestial Navigation, which is part of the Astrophysics Department. I am personally interested in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. The more I learn about the power of math, the more fascinated I become with it. I hope I can transmit my enthusiasm to my students.
