I will share my knowledge on:

  • How I supported my college applications using a holistic approach focusing not only on academics and SAT scores, but also on extra-curriculars (debate, choir, MUN etc.), leadership, and services to build an all-rounded profile.
  • How I decided on choosing UCLA, ranked as nation’s No. 1 in its Clinical Psychology program, to pursue my major in Psychology, as I am intrigued by how genetics and experiences could influence thoughts and behavior.
  • What UCLA has to offer in terms of campus life, flexibility in major selection, fast-paced quarter system, and international diversity
  • How I prepare myself for a career combining passion in music and interest in developmental psychology, supported by my research in using music as a therapy for mental health
  • My familiarity of the UC application to help students gain a first-hand perspective on the admissions process, and my journey in gaining the UCLA Achievement Scholarship (awarded to top 1%)

Why I love to teach

I’m a strong believer in education and investing resources in younger generations. Teaching has always been a passion of mine as I get to share my knowledge with others while being able to exchange ideas with them - and tutoring is a great platform for doing so. As a graduated high schooler with a full AP schedule, I have first-handedly experienced the stress and workload that comes with taking each exam so I fully understand the importance of having good teachers! By tutoring these subjects, I hope to pass down my knowledge and exam-taking advice to students for their future benefit.

Interesting fact

Music is a huge part of my life! In addition to 14 years of classical training in piano, I also play the acoustic guitar, bass guitar, xylophone, cajon, and sing.
