For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by math and science. After participating in math competitions throughout middle school and early high school, I decided to attend a residential math and science high school in Oklahoma for my junior and senior years. There, I was able to pursue my interest in mathematics and physics by taking many relevant college-level courses. These wonderful educational opportunities eventually allowed me to attend Harvard University, where I completed undergraduate degrees in Mathematics and Physics. I am now a doctoral candidate in theoretical physics at Stanford University, with the aim of someday becoming a university professor.

While in college I was eager to communicate my passion for physics, which eventually led me to serve on the teaching staff for several undergraduate physics courses. In these roles, I found working with small groups of students on tricky physics problems deeply rewarding. In particular, I enjoyed watching my students grow in their ability to confidently work with physical and mathematical concepts. The joy of these experiences further inspired me to serve as a director of a volunteer organization that performs science experiments for school children in the Harvard area.

I would describe my teaching style as rigorous but empathetic. As a current Ph.D. student, I regularly struggle with picking up unfamiliar concepts in physics and mathematics and can therefore intimately relate to the challenges of learning something new in an academic setting. Moreover, I am pursuing a career in physics because I appreciate the beauty of the subject, and I hope to communicate this passion to my students.

When I’m not tutoring math or physics, I enjoy hiking, playing tennis, watching football, and dancing with friends!
