"Hi! My name is Toa. The Spanish-born American author, George Santayana once wrote, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." I help students learn more about college and history so they can make great decisions in their lifetime. I believe every student is special and will make a meaningful contribution to the world.

I help high school students succeed in the college admissions process and prepare for AP History exams. I earned my Bachelor’s degree from Stanford University in 2016.

My expertise as a writing tutor for college essays covers brainstorming to proofreading for applications and resumes. For over two years, I have coached students on how to be good readers, writers, and organizers. I have worked with students from different backgrounds in North America and Asia. My students have been accepted to Cornell, Northeastern and UT Austin. My process starts with a writing exercise that encourages students to reflect on life events and note down important details. Former students appreciate my unique coaching style.

I am a history buff and scored a 5 on every AP history exam in high school! AP European history was my favorite class and introduced me to intellectual history. Right now, I am reading Peter Watson's The Modern Mind. I love sharing global ideas related to AP history concepts with students. To prepare for AP History exams, I design a number of exercises tailored to the student's needs. My goal is to enhance a learner's understanding of the material. Some students need guided discussions. Others may need help understanding questions on the exam. I do everything in my power to help! For the past 12 months, I have helped students one-on-one learn more about the past.

I look forward to helping students achieve more and discover paths to success!" less...
