Every student is unique, blessed with a singular learning style and way of seeing the world. With my background in academic and research psychology, I believe I am well-equipped to tap into the style, preferences, and ways of seeing the world that make each student who they are. I believe in active listening and dynamic tutoring. You can find me drawing and diagramming on a piece of paper or using as many metaphors or real-life examples as necessary to make a concept come alive.
My tutoring and teaching background:
I spent two years as an SAT instructor and private tutor for high school students through Revolution Prep in San Francisco. During my master's degree career, I tutored for the Athletic Department at Wake Forest University, where I worked with students at a variety of abilities. I tutored "Learning to Learn" and "Introduction to Psychology" for incoming college freshman.
My educational background:
As a National Merit Scholar, I earned two bachelor's degrees from the University of California, at Los Angeles: a B.S. in Psychobiology and a B.A. in English Literature. After a stint expressing the vocal musician in me as a master's degree student at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, I honed in on research and experimental psychology. After two exciting and enriching years at Stanford University, I moved across the country to pursue my Master's degree in research psychology at Wake Forest University, where I was supported by a full-tuition scholarship. My thesis focussed on longitudinal change in autonomy and parent-child closeness among a sample of Asian-American high school students.
