"Hello! My name is Sakura and I’m an undergraduate student at Princeton University studying English and Humanistic Studies. I decided to take a gap year this year after hearing about Princeton's decision to go fully remote. So far I've spent my gap year as a research assistant for two professors, tutoring and serving as a college admissions advisor, and am beginning a virtual internship!

I have a strong teaching background– I was an assistant Hebrew school teacher for 5 years and am currently an advisor with the organization Matriculate where I virtually mentor high school students throughout the college application process from starting their college lists, writing their personal essays and supplements, and applying for financial aid and scholarships. Last summer, I served as the Education Program Intern for Get Lit, a youth literacy organization, where I developed their 2019-2020 English class curriculum by curating poetry anthologies which are used in Los Angeles Unified School District Middle and High School classrooms.

I assist students with their schoolwork by guiding students through class assignments and homework, for standardized tests by going over practice exams and testing strategies, and for individual lessons related to vocabulary, writing, and literary analysis. Tutoring sessions are all individualized for the needs of each students.

I scored a 1530 on my SAT (780 on Reading, 750 on math), a 760 on the literature SAT subject test, and 5’s on the AP English literature and AP US History exams as well as a 4 on the AP Art History and Latin exams. At Princeton I completed the Humanities Sequence, a year long intensive course on Western literature, philosophy, religion, history, and arts. I received the English department's Francis Biddle Sophomore prize for best essay of the year on any topic in English or American Literature.

Feel free to reach out with any questions about my services or qualifications! I look forward to hearing from you!" less...
