I am an experienced teacher, tutor, and test-preparation instructor. I began this exciting career in China where I taught gifted students the skills they would need to study abroad. Later, I relocated to Switzerland where I worked with SAT verbal students focusing on reading, writing, and math. When my students finished our course, they demonstrated consistently higher PSAT scores. I returned to LA in October 2012 and have been teaching SAT and ACT prep ever since. I also recently started tutoring ISEE to middle school students and have found that to be a fun new avenue for learning. I think I'm a great tutor because I'm able to connect with my students, no matter their background, and help them achieve their goals--a great feeling for me and for them!
