I got my doctorate in the social sciences at Yale and have more than a decade of teaching experience. My areas of specialty are test prep, writing and grammar, psychology, analytical reasoning, and study skills.
Few things are as exciting to me as watching a student grasp material for the first time. Helping students learn is a passion.
For fun, I like to take beach walks with my two-year-old Cavachon (a mix of a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel and a Bichon Frise); play competitive Scrabble; and spend time with family and friends, preferably at a high-end or ethnic restaurant. As an adult, I have moved to every region of the country, which is not uncommon among people who work in higher education, and have found things to love about all of them. That said, the beauty--natural and man-made--of my adopted hometown of Santa Barbara makes it hard to imagine living anywhere else.
