I am a certified teacher and professional writer with more than 12 years of experience teaching and tutoring elementary, middle, high school, and undergraduate students. After studying at Columbia University, Brown University, and the University of Arkansas, I earned a B.A. with Honors as well as an M.F.A. (Masters of Fine Arts) in Creative Writing
. I work with many families throughout the San Francisco Bay Area by helping students with their homework, essay
writing, college applications, and test preparation
Homework Assistance: Using either student’s books as well as my original materials, I begin by reviewing a student’s current assignments, and then we review concepts that s/he is learning in class as well as prepare for upcoming quizzes, tests, or other assessments. Most of my students meet with me on a weekly or bi-weekly basis at their homes, public libraries, or cafes.
Essay Writing: As a previous writing tutor at a well-known university, I assist students with their writing process. We begin by brainstorming ideas, then work on composing an outline, crafting a rough draft, and finally, polishing the essay into a gorgeous final product. In addition, I have helped dozens of students with their college essays, and some of my students last year were accepted into top-ranked universities such as Duke, Stanford, MIT, Yale, and UC Berkeley.
Test Preparation: After training at Princeton Review, I have taught students in PSAT, SAT, and ACT for over four years. I have tutored over 250 hours and have mastered the techniques, methods, and strategies proven to increase overall scores.
I adore working with students, and my excitement and passion for teaching are palpable. In addition, I love helping with students who are being home schooled, and I have morning and afternoon slots available.
