Alice T.

Bio

Growing up bilingual in Mandarin Chinese and English, Alice has a deep love for learning languages and has studied five languages so far, not counting two Chinese dialects. Her interest in languages and linguistics grew into a fascination with the brain and its cognitive abilities, which led her to study Neuroscience and Cognitive Science at Princeton, where she graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. After college, Alice received the Princeton Project 55 Fellowship to work at a non-profit preschool for children with developmental delays in Harlem. Alice then spent a year conducting clinical neuroscience research at Boston Children's Hospital to further explore the intersection between research and patient care. Currently, she is pursuing an MD degree at Weill Cornell Medical College.

Alice has extensive tutoring and mentorship experience and has worked with students in preschool through post-undergraduate. Before joining the team at Cambridge Coaching, she had tutored students in reading, math, chemistry, and SAT, both in-person and online. In addition to tutoring in academics, Alice has guided students in navigating major milestones such as choosing a major, finding research opportunities, and exploring career options through the Princeton Chemistry Society and as a member of the Boston Committee for Project 55 Fellowship.  With Cambridge Coaching, she tutors across a number of tests (SSAT, SAT, MCAT) and academic subjects.

Outside of her studies, Alice enjoys running along the East River or in Central Park, baking bread, and getting lost in the Met.

    "Cambridge Coaching has been great. I reached out after a summer of completing a two-month MCAT course with little to no success. Cambridge Coaching sensed my anxiety surrounding the exam and matched me with Alice, whose organizational skills and mastery of chemistry and physics helped me improve over 15 points! Alice was really good at helping me tackle my exam anxiety and giving me very specific techniques that I could apply throughout the studying and exam-taking process. She is precise with her explanations, supportive without being lenient, and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to test-taking strategies. Alice didn't just help me significantly improve my score but also taught me to enjoy learning whilst doing so. I dedicated about 25-30 hours of work for every session with Alice. She would send me a list of homework items in an email after our sessions and I'd focus on completing them and writing down any questions I had in a joint google document. Score went from 500 to 515."
