Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a junior at MIT double majoring in Course 8 (Physics) and Course 18C (Mathematics with Computer Science). Since high school, I have been passionate about teaching, and I taught competitive math to the younger students at my high school for three years. I have also taught high school students for the USA Physics Olympiad while in college.
