"I'm a certified teacher who in addition to offering general academic enrichment also specializes in assisting families with the admissions process for high schools and college. My approach emphasizes day-to-day and long term goals in mapping a unique trajectory for each student to earn a place at their school of choice. By developing a rigorous and meaningfully tailored curriculum, I help set my students apart from their peers to become competitive applicants.

I graduated from Northside at 16 and have spent 10+ years working with middle schoolers on general enrichment and admission to IMSA/Parker/LAB/Latin/Payton/Northside/Lane/Ignatius/Jones/Loyola. I've then supported my students with their HS curriculum and guided them through college admissions. I've excelled on standardized tests and strive to instill confidence in my students by ensuring they master the necessary skills to achieve this same success. However, strong scores alone don't guarantee admission. I emphasize the holistic "art of being a good student," including time management, executive functioning, and productive teacher interactions. I tutor students on their weekly coursework as needed and coach them in navigating events as they arise.

MIDDLE SCHOOLERS

I'm well-versed in HS admissions and tutor for the MAP, HSPT, ISEE. Beyond test prep and guiding families through HS admissions, I offer STEM enrichment on an ongoing basis. This helps facilitate a student's placement with the strongest cohort at their future HS (ie. starting in Alg.2 or Pre-calc) to ensure tracking with the strongest teachers and peers.

HIGH SCHOOLERS

I assist students with their daily work from BC Calc to History essays. I also offer comprehensive instruction in both Quantitative and Verbal Reasoning and can help strategize between the ACT/SAT and which test to take. I've worked with strong test takers on the minutiae to perfect scores, but also grinded away on content instruction to facilitate climbs from a 23 to a 31." less...
