Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi! I'm Howard, a freshman at Yale.

I love teaching-- I was a big math tutor throughout high school and I'm excited to teach more here!

I'm also a big piano nerd-- I used to play competitively, but now I learn random songs for fun (current favorite is Howl's Moving Castle, specifically Kyle Landry's cover)

In my free time, I love to be active-- in particular, I enjoy spikeball, football, and lifting.

Other favorites: chess, Rubik's cubes, Wordle (and its variations), Chipotle, Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos, Yung Gravy, boba tea
