I am a second year law student at the University of Chicago who hails from the San Francisco Bay Area! I tutor the SAT, ESL, and Spanish. I was an AVID tutor in high school, and after college I taught an ESL class and tutored a high school student in Spanish. In law school, I am involved with the Lawyers in the Classroom program. My tutoring philosophy is based on listening to students work through problems and helping them to spot their confusions or incorrect assumptions. I believe students learn much better when they aren’t simply told the right answer or right reasoning; they need to get there on their own.

Outside of academia, I love to sing. I’m classically trained, but I also participated in a cappella in college! I also ran my first marathon this year, and I love to cook and try new recipes.
