I am a veteran teacher and tutor with National Board Certification in teaching English as a Second Language. I have taught ESL, English, and Psychology (including Honors and AP courses) for a number of years. I hold a master's degree in bilingual education.

I am now employed by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) as an evaluator. In addition to private tutoring, I teach an SAT Prep class at the Los Angeles STEM Academy

I am eager to help adult and secondary students who are looking for individual instruction from a compassionate, knowledgeable and dedicated teacher.

Contact me if you are ready to dedicate yourself to improving your command of English -- grammar, writing, reading comprehension and conversation. I can also help students prepare for SAT, ACT and AP exams.
