I received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley where I graduated with honors. After graduation, I worked for the Oakland Unified School District, and then the Los Angeles Unified School District as a biology and physiology teacher for high school students. I have also tutored students one-on-one from middle school through college level. Additionally, my work experience includes research, and I spent time as a staff member at a cognitive and developmental psychology lab at the University of California, Irvine.
I recently finished a Master’s of Science degree at Columbia University’s Teachers College, where I studied Neuroscience and Education. The program I was involved in focuses on brain development, cognitive psychology, and the neuroscience of learning.
I believe that every student just needs to find the right path to learning subjects they struggle in. One important part is to connect difficult concepts to what the student already knows, and what he or she is interested in. This not only helps to make the content interesting, but also helps the newly learned ideas stick.
To tell you a bit about my personality - I love fiction in all its forms. These days my main relaxation is watching Netflix and Amazon Prime. When I have time, I like to find a new show and watch a bunch of episodes in a row! I also enjoy a great fiction novel as well as the excitement of live theatre. I used to be involved in musicals in school, and if I'm feeling brave will go to sing karaoke with friends.
I am available to tutor Psychology, Physiology and Biological Sciences at a variety of skill levels, and I’m happy to answer any questions you might have about me!
