It’s a pleasure to meet you! I am honors graduate in Economics and soon to be Physician's Assistant student. I have spent the past seven years tutoring students of all ages and backgrounds and have loved every moment. There is no denying that school can be hard. I take pride in watching my students achieve their potential and become successful individuals.

When I was in college I spent 4 years tutoring in Pre-Algebra, Algebra, English composition and GRE verbal. Once I graduated college I moved to San Francisco to complete a post-bachelorette degree in pre-medicine. I spent 2 years studying and tutoring in all areas of Physics, Biology, Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry and Biochemistry. I am very good at simplifying difficult concepts in a way that is manageable and easily understandable. School can be easy if it’s made easy!

I have large bank of study and testing materials and assign homework after most lessons so that each student will continue practicing and developing on their areas of weakness.

I am always looking to better myself as a teacher. I welcome feedback as a means to improve the quality of the lesson. Although I do require a 24-hour cancellation notice, I understand that sometimes, things come up and I will offer make-up lessons.

My home in Encino is always open as a quiet comfortable place to study. However, I am happy to meet for each lesson at the convenience of the student.

I look forward to hearing from you and help you become better than the day you were before!
