I am a Chemical Engineering student at Tufts University, but I am originally from Chicago. I've been interested in science since a young age, and I'm excited to impart my knowledge to students with similar interests. I am also passionate about foreign languages, and speak French, Spanish, and German.
While in high school at the Illinois Math and Science Academy, I worked for two years as a tutor, helping other students with chemistry, physics, biology, calculus, French, German, and Spanish classes.
