Whether you're learning a different language, boning up on your algebra, trigonometry, or English, or prepping for a standardized test, I can help you reach your goals, fast!

I have several years of experience teaching and making seemingly obscure subjects approachable, including the GMAT prep course for Kaplan Test Prep. I have taught Spanish to English speakers, English to Spanish speakers, and guitar and piano to people who thought themselves musically hopeless. I also have experience teaching classes of various sizes, from one-on-one lessons, to small groups, to very large groups of more than 100 people.

I received my BA in Linguistics, with a minor in Spanish, in 2008, and an MBA in 2011. I received very high scores on standardized tests (SAT, ACT, GMAT, and LSAT), and I know how to break down complicated concepts so they're not only understandable, but easy to internalize and remember.

It's important to recognize that everyone has a different preferred way of learning. The way that works best for one person might not be best for you, and vice versa. That includes the way we're taught in school sometimes.

Whether you're struggling with school subjects, just looking to brush up for an exam, or looking to learn something new the most efficient way, I can tailor the curriculum to your style so it just makes sense!

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.

English

I earned a BA in Linguistics in 2008. I have 2 years of experience teaching English to native Spanish speakers, individually and in small and large groups (over 100 students). I have scored above the 90th percentile on standardized tests (ACT, SAT, GMAT) evaluating English-language capabilities. I worked as a GMAT prep course instructor for Kaplan test prep.

Spanish

I earned my BA in Linguistics with a minor in Spanish. I spent 2 years living and working in South America, immersed in the Spanish language. I also have extensive work experience working in Spanish-language markets. Finally, I have several years of experience teaching a number of subjects, among them Spanish, to individuals and small and large groups.

Trigonometry

I took advanced math classes through college, and oftentimes would explain to my classmates in a matter of minutes what the professors had taught over the course of the hour. I have scored above the 90th percentile on standardized tests (ACT, SAT, GMAT) evaluating quantitative abilities. I worked as a GMAT prep course instructor for Kaplan test prep.
