I am currently a student at UCLA pursuing my PhD in Clinical Psychology. I've had tutoring/teaching experience in high school, college, and graduate school. I've tutored in Algebra and Statistics, and have taught English abroad to English-learners. I also have experience helping students (high school and college) with their writing, including college and graduate school application essays. In addition to tutoring Algebra, Statistics, Reading and Writing, I can help you study for standardized tests, including the GRE and ACT!

My tutoring approach is to meet students where they are at, and to individualize instruction based on student needs. I make sure to start out my work with each student by getting to know them, identifying their strengths and weaknesses, and working with the student to set goals. I always go at the student's pace, revisiting information as necessary and presenting the material from various perspectives. I try to make lessons as interactive as possible, using real life examples that students are interested in and utilizing various teaching methods.
