I am a graduate of the University of Southern California, where I received a B.A. in English. I also graduated from UCLA School of Law of and received a J.D., and I am a member of the California State Bar. I have tutored and edited for students at many levels of education. I am also currently the coach for the USC Women's Ultimate Frisbee Team, where I teach students about the skills and strategies of the sport every year.

My favorite subjects to tutor are standardized test preparation and writing. I believe that great test takers are made, not born. Anyone can improve your SAT or LSAT score with the right practice and guidance. I like to use a teaching method similar to how I would teach a sport by simplifying the concepts and strategies necessary into manageable terms, and then practicing specific skills in need of improvement. I believe great academic writing is all about clarity and structure, and I can help you to achieve both.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I think that the best way to learn is by doing something and then analyzing your performance to find ways to improve.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I like to chat with my students before anything else to get to know them as a person. Not all people respond well to the same type of feedback. I take my students' personalities into account when working with them.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I try to teach the methods and study skills that will help my students be successful down the road, not just right now.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I like to remind my students of the goals behind what they're working. You have to remember why you're doing what you're doing.
