I am a graduate of the University of California, Los Angeles. I received my Bachelor of Arts in International Development Studies with a focus on political science and economics. I have traveled extensively and spent the majority of my childhood living abroad in Ghana, India, South Korea, and Poland. As an international student, I am very familiar with both the IB Diploma Programme and AP Classes. I tutor in a broad range of subjects, but have always been most passionate about the social sciences. In addition, I enjoy working with students to achieve their highest potential on Standardized Tests - especially the SAT and LSAT. In my free time, I enjoy tennis, politics, cooking, and Bay Area sports teams.

Q & A

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

The key to improving reading comprehension is practice. I work with the student to develop a process that allows them to make note of and recall key information relevant to the questions.

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

Firstly, as the tutor I need to set the example by being passionate and motivated about the material. Beyond that, I find it helpful to relate the subject to the student's interests and to progressively build on the material.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

The best way to ensure that a student understand the material is if they are able to apply it to problems they have not seen before, and if they are able to teach the material back to me!

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

By instilling confidence and critical thinking in students, so that they are comfortable navigating unfamiliar material and new concepts.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Helping a student stay motivated begins with a positive attitude and setting realistic goals. On top of this, communication needs to be a two-way street between the tutor and student, especially so that the student is able to express their thoughts and needs.

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

When encountering a difficult skill or concept, I work with the student to break down or relate the problem to something that the student does understand, and then work our way up from there together.
