Jacob Wu


Hi! I'm a third-year majoring in Computer Science, Economics, and Haas Business. My vision is to help people make better decisions, so I'd love to help you learn more about cache, the Frisch-Waugh theorem, or Mulhern’s First Law. Inspired by my experience working at the Student Learning Center as a tutor for Econ 140 (Econometrics), I envision a community of collaborative growth, whereby we empower and uplift one another through thoughtful engagement, supportive camaraderie, and a deep knowledge of theory. I believe students must be given the appropriate resources in order to succeed, so I am committed to supporting excellence in learning by drawing interdisciplinary yet personalized connections, transforming the learning experience into an active journey, and providing students with the motivation and tools to prosper.
