While I tutor a variety of subjects, I particularly enjoy working with students who are preparing for the verbal and writing segments of the ACT, SAT and GRE. I have found that these standardized tests come during a very transitional moment in the lives of teens and young adults, and I am passionate about empowering my students through building their confidence and helping them gain the necessary skills to meet their score goals. I believe that every student has unique ways of learning, and I take pride in finding the right learning strategies to help each student to maximize their learning potential.

I earned my BA at University of California, San Diego, where I graduated Cum Laude with a major in Human Development and a focus in the area of psychology. I also graduated Summa Cum Laude with my Master of Arts in Theology from the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology (DSPT) in Berkeley, CA. I am now working toward my Masters of Social Work at the Brown School at Washington University in Saint Louis.

During my undergraduate years, I had the privilege of tutoring at-risk students in K-5 who were below the 50th percentile in reading through the America Reads program. Later, during my graduate level studies, I tutored reading, writing, and verbal skills at Huntington Learning Center. There, I tutored SAT and ACT prep for the Reading and Writing portions of both exams. I also had the privilege of working with both children and teens out on the learning floor. Both on the floor and in my test prep sessions, several of my students struggled with learning disabilities like ADD and ADHD. I worked to keep these students engaged through interactive lessons that encouraged active participation in the learning process.

Finally, in my years as Director of Admissions at a graduate school, I not only read numerous personal statements for graduate admission applications but also helped many of those same students to polish their statements prior to final submission.
