"A graduate of USC (a proud Trojan...fight on!), I have a deep passion for tutoring and teaching. I started my own tutoring business when I was in high school and have enjoyed it ever since then. Learning is one of my favorite things in life, and I try to pass that enthusiasm on to my students. An aspiring director, I use my theatre skills in tutoring by connecting with a wide variety of people, improvising new ways to communicate the material, and engaging interest in the subject matter. Friendly, dependable, and approachable, I am always willing to go the extra mile with my students of all ages and abilities.

Math was always one of my favorite subjects in school, and I enjoy the process of communicating those concepts to students. Writing is also exciting for me to tutor because I am fascinated by my students' perspectives and how to make those stronger in their own writing. In my free time, I love going to concerts and plays, reading, cooking, crossword puzzles, and exploring Los Angeles.

I recently moved back to Los Angeles from NYC, where I taught at two private schools specializing in one on one education. Most of these students had learning and behavior disabilities, and my experience in meeting students where they are at aided in their improvement. I learned many strategies for helping students with various abilities.

I earned a 5 on my AP Calculus AB test, so I'm proficient in math skills up to that level. I love finding new ways to present the material to my students so that they always understand.

Reading is one of my greatest loves. I enjoy the written word and communicating with others. I love to pass on that enthusiasm to my students. I am interested in concrete strategies to encourage improvement. I have vast experience in all areas of E" less...
