"Hi! I am an experienced, credentialed teacher and private tutor with a passion for working with high school and college students to master and enjoy the mysteries of history – how to succeed in your history courses, including AP courses – as well as to conquer and succeed at standardized tests (ACT, SAT, SSAT, PSAT, HSPT, PLAN.) I also work with students on perfecting their writing skills.

My degrees are from Swarthmore College (B.A.) and the University of Wisconsin, Madison (M.A. and Ph.D. in American History) and I have over 15 years of experience teaching in high school and community college.

Trained by leading test prep companies, I have been tutoring test prep for over ten years, and my students are delighted with the considerable improvement in their scores.

On a personal note, I am married and my son just graduated from the University of Chicago Law School. I live in Mill Valley with my husband and our Siberian cat, Katya.

I look forward to working with you!

I've developed my own training materials, and the success of my methods is evident in the vast improvement in my students' test scores. Thanks to work with me, students have been admitted to universities to which they were prev" less...
