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.
