I welcome any opportunity to help students of all ages improve in the areas of writing, reading comprehension, interviewing, test-taking, and verbal communications. As a South Bay native and graduate of Saratoga High School, I understand the uniquely fierce competition that exists in South Bay schools. Strong reading and writing skills are fundamental requirements for getting and maintaining an academic 'edge'. As an accomplished academic and Communications professional, I have the expertise to help students find their 'voice', articulate their thoughts on paper, read more efficiently, and apply analytical thinking to whatever they read. I am particularly skilled in College Counseling and enjoy helping high school students select schools, develop a strategy for applying, and produce stellar written work to meet any essay/short answer requirements.
I find that I connect well with students of all ages. It gives me incredible satisfaction when my clients attain the accolades, 'A' grades, and college acceptances they seek, because I feel personally invested in the success of each and every one. Even more rewarding is witnessing the elevated confidence that students derive from those successes!
I hold a Bachelor's of Science from Northwestern University and an M.B.A. from San Jose State University. In 2004, I served on the Admissions committee for Northwestern University, as an Alumni Interviewer. I have more than a decade of work experience in Marketing Communications, and I have written professionally for two local city guides. I am an avid traveler and have, thus far, visited 17 different countries and 36 states.
