I am a graduate of Stanford University, where I received a BS in Cognitive Science and an MS in Computer Science. After graduation, I spent a summer in Palestine, where I taught web development, app development, and entrepreneurship to a cohort of overenthusiastic high school students; now, I've moved halfway across the country from the Bay Area to the Twin Cities. From volunteering with organizations like Twin Cities Rise and The Mid-Continent Oceanographic Institute to checking out art institutions like the Walker and Mia, it's been such a wonderful time settling into this new place that I call home.
So how can I help? I'm a tutor in Computer Science and Math, and I've worked with students across the middle school, high school, and college levels to strengthen their grasp on the material and boost their confidence in those subjects. I believe that education is so much more than a means to a job or a race to the finish; it's about giving us the direction to learn how to think for ourselves and the challenge of asking ourselves what we should be thinking about. I hope that I'll be able to help steer the classes you're taking and the standardized tests you're studying for away from a path of drudgery and towards a path of curiosity and fulfillment. I look forward to working with you!
