I graduated from Stanford University in 2017 with a bachelor's degree in philosophy. During the summers of 2014, 2016, and 2017 I worked for Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies (SPCS), an academic residential camp in which students from all over the world come to the Stanford campus to take courses in subjects they're passionate about. In addition to living with and supervising the campers I assisted in teaching some of the courses. In 2014 I was teaching physics to middle schoolers; in 2016 I was teaching philosophy to high schoolers; and in 2017 I was teaching mathematical logic to high schoolers. Though I have experience teaching both the sciences (including math) and the humanities, I am more passionate about the latter, and within the humanities I am most passionate about philosophy and English. The most important thing I've learned from those two fields (and the thing I'd most want to pass on to students) is how to find the right words for thoughts - this is important, not just because it allows people to express themselves well to others, but also because it affords clarity to people regarding their own opinions and ideas. Shortly after I graduated from college I embarked on an extended trip around Europe lasting from October 2017 to May 2018. My interests include traveling, piano, and reading.
