Brief Biographical Sketch:

Yo! I'm Ian, a current junior studying computer science! I've been teaching since I was in 8th grade, and while I've mainly done tutoring and teaching in STEM field (physics, math, CS), I think the biggest constant in my life has been music- I've played piano since I was 5, and violin since I was 10, apart from of course listening to music all the time no matter what I'm doing. In my free time, I build fun things on my computer and like to compose and mashup music, from EDM to orchestral scores; I also play for the Stanford Symphony Orchestra and do tennis on the Stanford club team.
