I love to teach students how to get the good grade. I especially enjoy helping students realize that they can succeed, no matter how difficult their assignment may seem.
I wasn't born a genius, so I always considered myself the "underdog" in the classroom or when taking a standardized exam. Despite being the underdog, I learned how to get A's and beat my competition by working hard and learning to be "street smart" when it came to taking exams and completing assignments. As a result, I passed the California Bar exam on my first try (only 50-60% of takers typically pass the exam), I was admitted to Law Review after competing in a writing competition, I was awarded the "First Honors" award for achieving the highest grade in one of my law school classes, I became the Team Captain of my successful undergraduate mock trial team, and was placed on the Dean's List and President's List during college. I was not always an "A" student and thus had to teach myself how to get A's. Once I did, I realized it was possible to get A's in ANY course, even if I liked the subject the least or knew less than everyone else. I want to help you accomplish this too!
I received my Juris Doctorate from Loyola Law School and studied Business Administration and Computer Information Systems as an undergraduate. I passed the CA Bar Exam on my first attempt. I am friendly, patient, and easy to work with.
How I can help you:
My goal is to help students realize that anything is possible and to help students become smarter about taking tests, completing assignments, and learning to be the best in any subject. I can also help in non-classroom areas, such as public speaking, career counseling, grad school applications, and exam preparation.
It is my hope that I can help students realize that knowing HOW to take an exam is just as important as knowing the material itself. I look forward to working with you!
