I recently graduated from the University of California Berkeley with a Bachelor of Arts in Geography and a Minor in History. For my last two years of college, I worked as a tutor at Berkeley High School's Bridge program, which aims to help underrepresented high school students on their paths to college. I helped students with many different subjects including test prep, but most of my experience was in math. While I majored in humanities, my strong math background from high school enabled me to help many students in subjects ranging from Algebra 1 to AP Calculus. Also, in the summer before my senior year I earned a TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) certificate in China, while working with elementary age children. I have enjoyed all of my experiences with teaching and tutoring because I like being able to help students with their academic challenges, as I believe that education is essential to becoming a better person. I have had many people help me on my academic journey, and I know that it takes a team to succeed. In my free time, I enjoy reading, cooking, and playing ping pong.
