I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Rice University in Houston, Texas. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, with a focus on neuroscience and developmental psychology. I am currently an incoming J.D. candidate at a top law school.
I have been tutoring for about seven years. In high school, I tutored middle school students in pre-algebra, 7th-grade, and 6th-grade mathematics. It was also during high school when I successfully prepared for the SAT and PSAT, on which my score led to my becoming a National Merit Finalist. I continued tutoring middle school students in college during my freshman year. I have also taught English and Reading during volunteering at an orphanage in Tianjin, China. As an upperclassman in college, I was inducted as a Rice University Academic Fellow for my demonstrated achievement in my coursework and my willingness to help fellow students. As a fellow, I provided tutoring on a weekly basis and hosted review sessions for my residential college for introductory psychology, intermediate psychology, and essay editing.
Because of my background in psychology, I am a proponent of studying smartly over studying hard, applying the science behind memory and learning to my tutoring style. I take a holistic approach to tutoring, one in which my students and I work as a team to not only cover subject material but to also create long-lasting study habits. I also impart my love of learning to those I tutor, because I believe that a positive mindset should underlie the learning process.
