I moved to New York in 2016 after a summer volunteering abroad as an ESL teacher and curriculum developer. Before that, I studied English and Linguistics at UCLA while helping other undergrads polish essays for lower and upper-division classes. I also taught fifth-graders creative writing and volunteered as a tutor for UCLA Housekeeping employees who wanted to gain confidence in their ability to speak English! Studying at UCLA was an incredibly rewarding experience that solidified my interest in being a tutor and mentor.

I love sharing knowledge with people, but, more importantly, I love helping my students figure out the world around them. Many concepts that seem dry or abstract have really innovative real-life applications, and I like to incorporate these examples to create memorable lessons. I'm also keen on personalizing my lessons for individual students-- no matter how well I know the material, it becomes a continuous journey of discovery every time I teach it. And while I do think some things are harder to learn than others, I also believe that students can learn anything if someone takes the time to help them understand it.
