As an undergraduate, I received my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the George Washington University in Washington, DC. Following my graduation, I took a year off to pedicab and volunteer at a legal aid office in San Francisco before beginning my legal studies at Emory Law School in Atlanta, GA. I received my JD in May 2013, and I am currently studying for the Massachusetts Bar exam, so my study skills are still quite fresh, not only as a tutor, but as a recent student. While at Emory Law, in addition to helping out fellow students in study groups and one-on-one sessions, I was active in a group called "Know Your Rights" that went around to local schools and taught students of various ages and backgrounds about their legal rights and the correct way to deal with various situations they might find themselves in.
While I tutor in a variety of subjects, my favorite subjects to tutor are standardized tests such as the SAT and LSAT as there truly is a science behind approaching questions, finding contextual clues and eliminating wrong answers. I have used these techniques throughout my own academic career with great success and I like passing them along to my students. When you work with me, we will run diagnostic tests to pinpoint the exact questions types that are troubling you and then focus on that type of question until you understand exactly how to solve them.
In addition to test-taking skills, I am happy to give advice on getting into college or law school and how to succeed once you are there. Wow, if only I had known half the things I know now! In my free time, I bicycle, hike, golf, travel, enjoy a wide variety of music and read.
