I'm an experienced, results-oriented tutor for students looking to revolutionize their writing and maximize their performance on standardized tests. I respect each student's individuality and thought process, so my specialty is coaching students towards savvy strategies and critical thinking using their unique abilities.
As a former frequent test-taker (most recently the California bar exam), I empathize with students preparing for college or law school, and I strive to build confidence as well as competence. Many of my teaching tactics, especially for writing, stem from effective methods and information I wish I had been taught. I'm proud to say that by the close of coaching, my students are prepared to handle academic challenges with the aplomb of an expert.
My own unique and diverse background has given me the tools to identify a student's strengths and cultivate his or her potential. I have experience as a civil litigation attorney, a Bar Method fitness instructor, an editor, a photo shoot producer and stylist, and a CNN broadcasting intern. Originally from Los Angeles, I have lived all over the beautiful states of California and Oregon. I earned my J.D. from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco and my B.A. in Political Science from UC San Diego. I love the great outdoors, reading, Antiques Roadshow, snowboarding, writing about politics and the future, animals, American history, and Polaroid photography. I look forward to meeting you!
