Hi there! I've been tutoring since 2011. I received my B.A. from UCLA, where I graduated Cum Laude in communication studies and art history. Currently I'm an M.A. candidate in philosophy at Georgia State University, where I have taught 6 sections of introductory level philosophy classes such as Critical Thinking.

Before moving to Atlanta from California for graduate school, I had been tutoring English and math for several years. I've also worked as adjunct lecturer at a private college where I developed a course on Russian literature in translation and taught a course on the history of western civilization. My favorite subjects to tutor are English, critical thinking, study skills, and standardized test preparation.

I'm passionate about helping my students uncover their strengths and weaknesses and helping them develop individualized study plans that are tailored for their schedules and learning styles. In my free time I enjoy reading, listening to podcasts, painting, doing yoga, hiking.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I have had the privilege of working with an incredibly diverse array of students in the past, both as a tutor of K-12 students as well as a part-time lecturer at a private college. Through these experiences I've come to realize the importance of personalizing the material and my teaching style to each student's need. I also strive to establish a personal connection with my students so that they are more receptive to my help.
