I'm a junior at MIT studying Biological Engineering. I've been tutoring for six years in multiple subjects, most extensively in math but also in reading comprehension, chemistry, and biology. In high school, I qualified for the AIME and MIT's Math Prize for Girls and won the award for achievement in mathematics in my high school class of 400. These achievements make me uniquely qualified to teach both competition and academic mathematics at most levels. In fact, I have experience successfully tutoring a wide age range of students, from age 4 to 17.
At this point in my life, I like to use teaching and mentoring to make a difference in my community. I am currently president of MIT SHINE for Girls, a math and dance outreach program at MIT that invites middle school girls from under-served school districts to campus once a week to dance and learn math. I really enjoy forming a mentor-mentee relationship with a student and building their confidence, showing them that they can achieve more than they ever believed. For that reason, tutoring has been both my job and my hobby for the last six years. I look forward to getting to know new students and working with them collaboratively towards their goals.
