"I would be delighted to share with you the knowledge and skills I have acquired through completing my academic degrees from top institutions, preparing for and acing standardized tests, learning languages and living abroad, conducting research, and writing code. I have successfully tutored numerous students over the years in subjects ranging from writing to SAT to programming to algebra to neuroscience to languages.

I also have extensive expertise in successfully applying for things, and I can use this to help you with college, graduate school, and scholarship applications, which I have done with dozens of students I have mentored over the years. I would additionally be glad to provide coaching, helping you clarify your academic, personal, and/or professional goals and how to reach them.

People who know me well describe me as creative, kind, intelligent, and open-minded. I strive to bring these qualities to my teaching and mentorship to give my students a meaningful learning experience." less...
