I am a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and have received two Bachelor of Science degrees - one in Psychology and the other in Marketing. I will be enrolling at the University of Chicago Law School in the Fall of 2014 with the goal of obtaining my JD degree and preparing for a career as a lawyer. I have tutored students of many age groups, from elementary school students in areas of math and English, to undergraduate students in economics, to college graduates preparing to take the LSAT. Due to my own recent experience in test preparation, I am especially passionate about teaching the LSAT. Unlike many graduate-level standardized tests, the LSAT contains puzzle games and logical elements that make test preparation a fun challenge. My philosophy as an instructor is to consider each student’s goals and preferred pathways to learning, and to then work jointly with the student to prepare a list of goals along with a study plan geared to accomplish those goals. There is no “one size fits all” approach to learning, so I attempt to accommodate each student as an individual. I try to keep lessons light, fun, and paced to suit the student’s preferred speed. When I am not working with students, I enjoy long distance running, hiking, attending concerts and stand-up comedy shows, traveling, and taking my dog for long walks. She also very much enjoys the walks.
