I am a member of the State Bar of California and possess a JD and a Bachelor of Arts in Government. I have experience as a tutor for children through a nonprofit in Washington, DC where I lived before relocating to the West Coast.

I received an excellent score on my SATs - an 800 in Verbal - and have superior reading and writing abilities because of my college degree in Government and my legal training.

I am patient, friendly, and understand that not everyone learns in the same way. I am adaptable to the needs of different students and believe that everyone can achieve their best through hard-work and persistence. I genuinely enjoy helping others and I look forward to assisting students reach their goals!
