I am a recent graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, where I studied theatre, literature, language, and history. Prior to that, I attended Charter High for Arts and Multimedia School (CHAMPS) in Los Angeles California. At CHAMPS, I took a particular interest in theatre, as well as math and science. I graduated second in my class with top scores in AP Chemistry, AP English, and AP US History.

In college I was the personal tutor of a fifth grader, whom I assisted with general homework aid and standardized test preparation. During the summers, I tutored students in various levels of mathematics at the high school where both my mother and my brother continue to teach. In high school, I was leader of the AP Chemistry peer help group and a freelance math tutor.

I am most comfortable tutoring students in mathematics and the English language, but I also quite enjoy helping students cultivate their test taking skills. Every standardized test boils down to a game of strategy, which everyone can practice and win.

I am a firm believer in the importance of cultivating joy and passion in each and every learning experience. I understand that everyone learns differently and every concept can be understood in a variety of ways. I strive to figure out how my students learn best and, more importantly, how they can do so with a new found joy and passion for the subject at hand.

Outside of the academic arena, I love food and theatre above all else. I've also grown very fond of web and multimedia design. I am a total geek when it comes to languages, which has led me to a new found passion for travel. I am in process of learning Spanish and Italian, and I continue to better my study of the Russian and German languages. One day, I hope to attend graduate school in Germany and pursue a degree in comparative linguistics.
