Hello! My name is Yatindran Dilip and I am currently a junior at Cupertino High School. I have really loved and enjoyed economics for its practical purposes and useful nature. At my high school, I serve as the President of an investing club. From my experiences, I hope to teach you to the best of my ability!
Hi, my name is Vaishak Renjith, I am a high school student with a passion for economics and teaching. I have always been fascinated by the way economies work and how they can be used to understand and solve real-world problems. I believe that economics is a crucial subject that can help people make informed decisions and understand the world around them. As a teacher, I hope to continue studying and learning about economics in the future, and to share my knowledge and passion with others.
Hi everyone! My name is Sara Tatke and I am one of the economics instructors. I am currently a senior in high school and love economics because I can approach problems systematically, analyzing society through a statistical lens. Economics allows me to reach solutions through step-by-step processes. I look forward to bringing this passion to YAPA Kids!
