Teaching since:
2016

I've always been an avid learner and a self-proclaimed bookworm; The Giver has been my favorite book since childhood. However, I am no stranger to struggling or just needing a bit of extra help in the classroom, and I believe this experience helps me excel as a tutor. I am involved in Biology Olympiad, Writing Fellows, Peer Mentors, Mock Trial, and I even helped found a non-profit community service organization. My main passion is research - right now I'm studying adolescent mental health. I am majoring in Psychology and Political Science at UCLA, and in my free time, I love to hike, travel, and make key lime pie!
