I've been working as a teaching assistant for Calculus at Princeton since 2015. I've also volunteered as a tutor for the Petey Greene Program since 2016, and I've been a Wilderness First Aid Instructor since 2017. I've held other smaller tutoring jobs (for English, Math, and Physics) on and off since 2014.
