I am a graduate of UCLA (BA) and the University of Oxford (master's, soon PhD), specializing in European history, English composition, the SAT/ACT verbal sections, and college-application essays. I have taught at Oxford and an English prep school, as well as have over 5 years of experience in 1-on-1 tutoring. I am proud to boast that 100% of my students have passed the AP Euro exam, most with 4s and 5s.
I also have two years of experience as an admissions officer at the University of Oxford, where I interviewed student applicants and nominated candidates for admission. If you are applying to college, I offer unique insight into composing effective applications and can ably critique and correct your essays.
My personal tutoring philosophy is not merely to teach facts, but to train a student in how best to think about a particular subject. This means moving beyond the superficial to engage with a topic's core themes and ideas. At times this is tough work, but the rewards are worth it!
