For the last 10 years as a youth mentor I have worked to help students succeed. While mentoring has meant life coaching, counseling and college visits, it has also included a substantial amount of academic tutoring. I have a passion for people and a strong belief in the power of words: written, spoken, and sung! I especially enjoy helping students connect with their passions and then translate that passion to the page. I also have quite a bit of recent experience with the GRE. I believe that taking the GRE is a skill - and that means that with practice you can get better at it! I would love to share specific strategies that helped me and others succeed. I have a BA in Linguistics, two masters degrees in religious studies, and am currently completing a PhD in Theology and Culture at Fuller Seminary. I am a self-confessed nerd (I once presented a paper at a conference on The Hobbit). I am a huge fan of fitness and ran a free CrossFit "garage gym" with over 20 members for several years. I play the guitar and attempt the piano. I enjoy traveling and recently hiked the Incan Trail to Machu Picchu. I can tutor in a broad range of subjects and would enjoy connecting to see how I can help you attain your personal goals!
