I love to teach, to motivate students, to free their potential and help them raise their grades. With degrees from Cambridge and UCLA, and fifteen years' experience, I bring the highest academic standards to tutoring, no matter what age group or level of ability. Whether it's ESL or SAT English, reading or writing, Art History or World History, I specialize in making complicated ideas accessible, difficult words understandable, and distant events relevant to your experience.
I’m a skilled ESL tutor with a 95% GRE language score, and an experienced editor. Whether it’s an SAT test, a high school essay, a college term paper, a graduate thesis or an article, I can help you improve your grammar, tighten up your arguments and produce a coherent, well written paper.
I lecture at Cal State Long Beach and Antioch University. I teach Western Art History from prehistory to the present, and specialize in 18th - 19th century European art, and Islamic art and architecture. I put a strong emphasis on cross-cultural relations in art.
It may be that you’re having trouble with a particular aspect of English or Art History: spelling is a problem for you, or grammar is giving you nightmares; or you’re having trouble making sense of the endless string of art styles and periods. I assure you I can help you grasp these things and turn them into achievements.
Or maybe you feel that English just isn't your language, that it'll never be part of your identity. Or that Art History was actually written with someone else in mind — that it’s not part of your history at all. These are deeper issues with which I have a lot of experience, and I can help you address and engage with them in a way that enables you to take possession of skills and subjects that once seemed alien.
In the end the issue is, how to transform feelings of being overwhelmed — or just being at the beginning of what seems like a very long road — into a sense of capability and self confidence. As soon as we start talking about your aspirations, your real strengths and weaknesses, we can start talking in concrete terms about what steps to take to move you or your child or partner forward.
So contact me and let’s talk!
