Nearly every academic pursuit and professional field requires writing proficiency. All too often, though, schools universalize writing styles and gloss over editing techniques. The result is an educated college applicant or technically qualified employee who lacks the ability to communicate effectively. I believe all students, regardless of age, can improve upon their reading comprehension and writing proficiency. A tutor who employs an individualized approach can help.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, I earned my Bachelors degree in Political Science from UCLA in 2010, graduating in three years with Magna Cum Laude honors. I moved to Atlanta a couple of years ago to pursue a JD. As a current third-year student at the Emory University School of Law, I devote my semesters to reading and writing. I devote my summers to helping others improve their lives. In my spare time, you will find me reading non-fiction, hiking around Stone Mountain, or watching a game on TV. I am an avid sports fan, particularly when it comes to football, basketball and hockey.

While I tutor a range of subjects, I truly enjoy helping students improve upon their reading comprehension and analytical writing proficiency. Writing is about effective communication more than a flashy vocabulary, about recognizing your literary audience and tailoring your efforts accordingly. The son of an elementary school teacher, I have helped 4th graders structure paragraphs, 9th graders analyze American poetry, and 12th graders master the Personal Statement on college applications (a joy and specialty of mine). I look forward to helping your son or daughter achieve their reading and writing potential as well.
