Meet Our Departments!
Meet the Curriculum Department!
I joined Excelsior Learning because I find joy in helping others. I look forward to being able to support and motivate younger students! A fun fact about me is that I love cats!
Hi! I'm Mai, a rising sophomore at Stuyvesant, and I'm excited to be working as a Curriculum Director with Excelsior! I was an SHSAT tutor last summer and I took the test this year myself, so I'm extremely familiar with the test and wanted to continue helping students achieve high scores. In my free time, I love to go for a run, watch my favorite sports, or cook a meal for my family.
I joined excelsior to prepare middle school students for SHSAT because I’ve been through the process (tutored my younger siblings too) and I didn’t have much access to resources as an immigrant and first generation. A fun fact about me is that I started Stuyvesant Coded Beats that aims to introduce students to live coding and music programming, a fusion of coding and live performance, that combined both of my interest ;)
I'm currently a student at Stuyvesant High School. After in-person school commenced again in September 2021 (which was my first such year here at Stuyvesant), I began to develop a desire to engage more with my community. One way I can give back to my community is by using my academic abilities through tutoring, which led me to Excelsior Learning. I am looking forward to the opportunity to give more children in NYC a better education.
I joined Excelsior because I wanted to help middle schoolers easily access material to study for the SHSAT. The SHSAT is a really important test to many of these students and being able to prep for it is essential. A fun fact about me is that during the school year I was really involved with my robotics team and went to a competition to see our robot compete.
Hi, I'm Alexa! I joined Excelsior as another way to give back to my community, and in my free time, I love to volunteer, tutor, and read. A fun fact about me is that I play ultimate frisbee!

Hi! I’m Fin and I joined Excelsior because I liked that the program would provide free tutoring and because I like working in a team. A fun fact about me is that I have a 2 year old budgie named A-king!
I joined Excelsior Learning for the opportunity to work with a diverse group of individuals and to help other students achieve their academic goals. A fun fact about me is that I love the shows Better Call Saul and House of Cards.
I’m a rising senior at Stuyvesant High School. In my free time, I love going on runs and picnicking with friends. I joined Excelsior Learning because they provide amazing prep opportunities and resources, and as someone who has benefitted from prep programs before, being a part of the Excelsior team is an amazing way to give back to the community.

Meet the Outreach Department!
I joined Excelsior Learning as I enjoy allowing students step into more opportunities for themselves in the future! One fun fact is that I am currently playing the piano and the guitar, but I hope to learn the bass in the future
I found Excelsior to be a great opportunity to work with others, with a goal of spreading the opportunity of non-profit tutoring! A fun-fact about myself is that I've been playing the violin for more than 5 years.
I joined Excelsior Learning in hopes of building my socialism & developing a better sense of responsibility. Not only that but, I also wanted to gain more tutoring experience to help students reach their academic potential!
