My passion for education began with the many teachers, tutors, and professors who inspired me in high school and college. That passion also inspired me to pursue a position tutoring first year law students at California Western School of Law (CWSL). My service as a tutor was my most rewarding law school experience, by far.

Moreover, the students I tutored in law school took the unprecedented step of acknowledging me with a plaque at the end of the school year, recognizing my "outstanding" instruction and "sincere care for students." CWSL does not offer a tutoring award. Thus, my students took it upon themselves to distinguish me in such a way. This was one of the most humbling and gratifying experiences of my entire life. Therefore, I enthusiastically decided on a career in higher education after law school.

In addition to my Juris Doctor degree, I hold Bachelor's Degrees in International Relations and English. Thus, I am able to tutor a wide range of subjects effectively and efficiently.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is two-fold. First, teaching my students the rules by breaking them down into smaller, "bite-sized" pieces. Second, giving my students examples based on real-world situations so they can apply that knowledge practically. By repeating these steps, complex concepts become easier to understand and apply.

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

To me, the most important part of the first tutoring session is goal setting. By setting well-defined goals, my student has well-defined metrics to measure his or her progress, and I have a better idea what to focus on. Introductions and rapport building are also integral to the first session.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

In my experience, the best way to help a student become an independent learner is to empower him or her by giving them the tools they need to learn on their own. This process involves teaching fundamental skills like time-management, goal-setting, and reading comprehension.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

In my experience, goal setting is integral to motivating students. Rewarding students based on what they are interested in or passionate about after they achieve a goal is an effective way to motivate them.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I would break the concept down into smaller pieces that are easier to understand. Then, I would walk the student through those pieces step-by-step. After that, I would give the student an example and have them apply the steps we discussed to that example. Finally, I would have them repeat that process without my assistance, and see if they have any remaining questions.
