I am a graduate of the University of California, Los Angeles, where I majored in Classical Civilization and minored in Cognitive Science. Helping student reach their full potential has been a passion of mine ever since I first started tutoring younger students in reading during my recess period as a fifth-grader! In high school I started assisting my classmates with their essays as a part of my school's Writing Center, and I realized then that helping students express their ideas in the best way possible is a particularly rewarding interest of mine. During my undergraduate years I supported members of the local Boys and Girls Club in crafting their personal statements for their college applications . Post-college, I have been working in various after-school programs and summer camps aimed at elementary school students. Thus, in regards to tutoring, my focus is in elementary school education (math, science, reading, writing), middle and high school writing and literature (or English class in general), and college application personal statements.

I believe that all students have the innate curiosity and capacity to learn and grow; as teachers and tutors it is our duty to figure out the best way to spark that growth. I believe in tailoring sessions to the individual student's learning style, and I strive to find new approaches to the subject material that better connect with my students. Outside of my youth work, I enjoy creating art (especially digital art), reading whatever I can get my hands on, and creating small computer games with my siblings.
