I am a second year law student at the UCLA School of Law and a recent graduate of Barnard College, Columbia University. I received my Bachelor of Arts in psychology & political science. Having spent 12 years in Taiwan, I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese. I am passionate in tutoring the LSAT logic games and logical reasoning, as well as varying levels of Mandarin Chinese. Having recently gone through the law school application process, I am acutely aware of the stress that many law school applicants experience. I would like to help lessen that stress by teaching my students how to effectively master the LSAT. Specifically, my teaching strategies focus on improving individualized note-taking techniques as well as deliberating over prior mistakes. By understanding the types of questions that tend to give you the most trouble, you will be able to more efficiently improve your score.

Also, I would love to answer any question my students may have about their application, their target law schools, and their expectations regarding the legal profession.

Outside of school, I love bouldering and creative writing. I've worked on the English/Chinese translation of documentary movies and books. And I love slam poetry and great novels.

Q & A

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

I would spend the first ten minutes going over what the student is currently struggling with on the subject and what the student hopes to achieve in the next month. Setting a short-term, achievable goal is an important motivator for the learning process, and it will allow me to create a realistic vision for constructing the lesson plans.
