M.A., Georgetown University, Washington DC, '14 Government and '04 Security Studies. Master and bachelor of law (LL.B. and LL.M.) degrees, National University of Singapore.
I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese and can also speak Japanese and Indonesian. Ive taught at the university level at Georgetown, The Catholic University of America, and McDaniel College. My coaching experience includes all English / reading and verbal sections of standardized tests ranging from the SSAT to the GRE, as well as the math and essay sections of the HSPT, ISEE and SAT/ACT. My students improve their scores by 10-20% or more if they follow the coaching plan I set out for them.
In my teaching and tutoring, I tailor the content and pedagogy to each student's interest and ability. I believe that anyone is capable of improving their test scores or knowledge of a subject through dedicated learning and hard work. My other area of focus is executive coaching and functioning.
