Hello!
I'm an experienced academic and test preparation tutor based out of West Hollywood. After graduating with honors from the University of Puget Sound, I returned to my hometown of Los Angeles and earned my masters in Psychology from Antioch University. I am currently an MFT intern working with children and families. Tutoring and counseling were a natural career choices for me given my love for helping people and making a difference in people's lives. I have been tutoring for 10 years in Los Angeles and am familiar with the curriculum of many of the private and public schools. Having graduated from Harvard-Westlake in 2000, I am well-acquainted with the vigorous requirements of many of the top tier schools in the city. I have tutored students from a variety of schools ranging from Marlborough, Crossroads and Harvard-Westlake to Los Angeles County School For the Arts and Hollywood High. I am a very creative individual and I bring that to my work. My goal in teaching is to utilize any strategy possible to bring out my student's best qualities. I have experience with a wide age range and have tutored several students with learning challenges as well. I look forward to working with you today!
