A graduate of Stanford University, I spent the last 10 years working as a private tutor and mentor to elementary, middle, and high school students in Northern and Southern California. Now based in Los Angeles, I still keep regular private tutoring clients, but I have come to specialize in working as an independent academic consultant, assisting students in goal-setting, organizational skills
, higher academic achievement, college admissions, career planning and transitional life skills.
My real talent and passion is identifying and honing a student's strengths. I love discovering what works best to ignite academic passion in a particular student. I work well (and patiently) with students who struggle with anxiety, lack of focus or disorganization.
I am available for independent counseling for the following:
