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.

I work with students in Algebra 1 and 2.
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.
