I was born in New York City but moved to California to attend Pomona College. I majored in English and minored in Physics. After graduation I moved to South Korea for a year and taught English to young Korean students. I wanted to explore another culture and see if I enjoyed teaching. I loved working with students so much that when I returned to New York I became a math teacher. I taught 6th and 8th grade math for three years in New York City and recently moved to Los Angeles.
I love working one-on-one with students. Tutoring is so much fun because I get to ask students questions that push their thinking and then jump in with explanations when needed. I love showing my students how much they can achieve. (Humans are capable of so much!)
I am well-versed in the Common Core math standards and have numerous strategies to share with students. I'm also an avid reader and enjoy helping students brainstorm, write, and edit essays.
