My passion is teaching and helping students discover the pleasures of learning.

I am resident of Berkeley, graduate of UC Santa Barbara, and have worked full-time as a tutor for the past 3 years. My specialties are Algebra, Geometry, Biology, and Spanish.

My students range from middle school through college. I have successfully worked with students with various learning challenges and gear my teaching strategies towards individual students.

I have developed a unique holistic style, pulling from my studies in compassionate communication from the Esalen Institute, which focuses on active listening and awareness of an individual’s feelings and needs.

I creatively approach each subject and student. I am patient and playful. I strive to make learning fun and enjoyable.

I am very passionate about what I do and dedicate myself to the success of my students.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

Algebra is one of my tutoring specialties. I have a knack for it and love helping my students with it.

Algebra 2

I work with students in Algebra 1 and 2.

American History

I completed AP History in high school. I took many history classes in college. I tutored a semester of US History to a student in Piedmont. The students find it helpful to have someone to discuss historical events and repetition to memorize dates.

Biology

I have tutored high school Biology for the past three years. Biology is one of my strongest subjects.

Geography

I am passionate about teaching geography. I graduated with a BA in Geography from UCSB. I love teaching students about human and physical geography.

Geometry

I began tutoring Algebra 2 in high school. I spent a semester tutoring Algebra and Geometry with the Sylvan Learning Center in Piedmont. I led after-school Algebra and Geometry tutoring at Oakland Tech.

Guitar

I have 14 years of experience playing guitar and have recorded 7 albums of original music. I am knowledgeable in music theory and took several music theory classes in college.

I am patient and an experienced teacher who enjoys sharing my love of music.

I teach folk, blues, pop, and rock guitar. I also teach my students music theory and how to improvise and solo.

ISEE

I have worked with students prepping for the ISEE. I help assess where they need improvement and work with them on creating a study plan. I am also an experienced math tutor and help students with the concepts on the math sections of the test.

World History

I completed AP History in high school. I took many history classes in college. I tutored a semester of US History to a student in Piedmont. The students find it helpful to have someone to discuss historical events and repetition to memorize dates.
