Mary Xu

University of Pennsylvania

Mary is no stranger to tutoring or the college admission process. The previous year, she guided fellow students to discover their academic interests, found summer programs to enrich younger minds, and tutored students in her town in math, English, and music. A 4-year all-state orchestra qualifier and member of the first violin section of her youth orchestra for five years, she understands the value of effective leadership and making your long-term commitments shine. In high school, she planned and performed at a benefit concert for her school’s music department, created education action plans for low-income students in her community, and advocated for greater cultural inclusivity in her school’s curriculum. She’s excited to work with you on your higher education goals! 


She was accepted into four Ivy League schools, Vanderbilt, and USC on a merit scholarship. She plans to study economics, computer science, and psychology at university.
