Education has been the catalyst of my life's greatest opportunities. Earning my Bachelor's in Finance from Florida State University and Juris Doctorate from UC Berkeley School of Law has not only facilitated me with great professional and personal opportunities, it has also provided me with invaluable experience that enables me to relate to aspiring law students and motivate them to reach their potential.
I particularly passionate about tutoring individuals on the LSAT test because of the positive effect law school has had on my life. I believe I am an effective LSAT tutor because of my understanding of how to best attack the exam, structured approach to studying and positive disposition. I aim to build a mentor relationship with each student as I strengthen their test taking skills and inspire confidence in themselves.
When I'm not helping students as a tutor, I enjoy traveling, exploring nature and watching sports.
