A student’s future lies in the educational experiences he or she gains when they are young. Therefore my goal as a tutor is to EMPOWER, ENSURE, and EXCEL.

I EMPOWER my students by fostering a learning environment that focuses on analytical skills and critical thinking. I am not only concerned about the student’s academic results, but also on the relevant skills they should gain to benefit themselves in the future.

I ENSURE that I am qualified and prepared for your child's particular needs. I only tutor subjects where I am able to conduct lessons that are engaging, creative and provoke thinking in my students. Above all, I have a heart to be committed to ensure your student learns effectively. I believe teaching is a calling, a duty, and the greatest privilege we have.

Students EXCEL because they know they can. For me, to excel does not equate to being better than the rest, it is to be the best you can be. I encourage my students to be confident in themselves and that as long as they put in their 100% and focus, they will excel in their school and eventually, in the future.

In summary, I treasure every opportunity to help my students. Only when my students become successful am I successful.

My academic qualifications stem from my bachelors degrees in Biology and Philosophy from UCLA. I have been tutoring 4 years. For the first two years I tutored Philosophy and Math at the Academic Advancement Center at UCLA. There I worked with Freshman students preparing them to be independent learners and masters of their materials.

Since I graduated have done private tutoring for many families and students ranging from ages 7 - 19. I have the ability and experience to tutor your child in Biology, Chemistry,English, all math up to Pre-calculus and SAT/ACT prep. I have never had a student who has not raised at least 200 points on the SAT or 3 points on the ACT.
