Private tutor in Boston, MA
I graduated from Laramie High School with Honors. While in high school I also took classes at the University of Wyoming, where I also conducted pharmaceutical research in the Molecular Signalling Laboratory. Currently I am a junior studying Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University, while also pursuing a certificate program in Engineering Physics.
SAT Scores: 2290 (800 Math, 800 Writing, 690 Reading), 800 score on SAT Math 2 subject test, 800 SAT Chemistry Subject Test; AP scores: 5s on AP Calculus AB, Calculus BC, AP English Language and Composition, AP Chemistry; 4s on AP Statistics, AP German Language and Culture, and AP Biology. I have taken numerous math and science courses at Princeton University, including Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, and my personal favorite, differential equations, along with numerous science courses, including Programming in Java and Python, Mechanics and Waves, Quantum Mechanics, Global Geophysics, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Methods of Detecting Climate Change, Integrated Science Curriculum, etc. In addition to taking rigorous math and science courses, I also hold an internship position at Princeton University in the lab of Dr. Howard A. Stone, working on fluid mechanics projects through the Princeton Environmental Institute. I will be continuing my current project on diffusiophoresis during my junior year, to write my junior research paper. In addition to research I have strong writing skills. I recently published a first-author paper on the pharmaceutical research I performed at the University of Wyoming, and have presented my research at conferences including the 59th Annual International Biophysical Society Conference, Baltimore, MD, Clinical and Translational Research –Infrastructure Network (CTR-IN), UNLV, as well as national and international science fairs, such as the Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS), Baltimore, MD in 2015, and the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), Phoenix, AZ in May 2012. I am really interested in being a tutor because I enjoy teaching, from my experience tutoring students in calculus and chemistry during high school, and I very much enjoy the content I have helped students with. I learn subjects best by explaining them to others, and this has enabled me to obtain a strong understanding of them. By teaching others and helping them learn, I want to not only help students prepare for tests in the subject area but also help them develop a keen appreciation as well as enjoyment for these subjects. This will allow them to learn new concepts and also how to apply these concepts to other fields and problems. I hope to share my enthusiasm for these subjects with others so they enjoy learning too.

My hobbies include research, as I am working in a Fluid Mechanics lab at Princeton University, and building rockets and electric circuits through the Princeton Rocketry Club. I also play ultimate frisbee for the university Women's Clockwork Frisbee Team and run. I really enjoy hands on learning try to partake in these extracurriculars alongside my coursework. In addition, I am a strong outdoors enthusiast. I hike, bike, and backpack frequently. I am an Outdoor Action Leader for Princeton, where I lead incoming freshman on backpacking trips as their first Princeton experiences, and will be leading a backpacking trip this fall. In my free time I bake, cook, read, and eat chocolate.
