I graduated from Stanford where I majored in Political Science and International Relations. Amongst the many great adventures I had on The Farm, my favorite memories are from mentoring through Stanford StepOut, an outreach program in East Palo Alto. A passionate education advocate, I learned how the power of hip hop and funk can motivate kids to get more involved in school. I also learned from my 5th grade experts how to "walk it out" and "Harlem shake" with the best. These experiences helped me through my Masters of Science at NYU, where I honed my journalism skills doing stories about everything from krumping to spontaneous "flash-mobs" in Times Square.
A true Star Wars Jedi, I love helping students master the most challenging of subjects and ace exams, because its awesome when the Dark Sith test makers are defeated by the Force (anyone else thrilled that Episode 7 is coming to a theater near you?!) My most rewarding moments are seeing my students scores go up more than they imagined! When I am not tutoring my Rockstar clients, I am probably reporting on someone's remarkable life story for the local news affiliate.
