Hello hello! I'm Andrea, and I am currently a sophomore, intended public health major and pre-medical student. I grew up singing in the Piedmont Choirs and playing piano; the many years of my musical education have positively shaped the person I am today. My love for music inspired me to tutor piano and vocal for TMC, and I've already had such a fun and inspiring time learning from the other tutors as well as the children. Besides music, I love to watch reality tv, trying new boba and food places with friends, traveling, and taking artsy pictures!
Hi! My name is Andrew and I'm a second year at Cal majoring in Conservation and Resource Studies (with an emphasis in Sustainable Engineering).
