My philosophy:

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.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

As a National Merit Scholar at UCLA, I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature (one of my double majors). I read and studied the great masters of English and American Literature in concentrated depth and detail; in addition I produced many papers analyzing and interpreting those great works. My GPA was an "A" average at UCLA for my English Major.

I have a passion for literature, writing, and the English language. Combined with my philosophy of tailoring each tutoring session to match the individual's learning style, I believe I can help you improve in English!

Psychology

I have an M.A. in research psychology. I have taken graduate level coursework in all major sub-disciplines of psychology as well as conducted my own empirical research on adolescent development. Psychology is my passion, and I love to communicate the concepts of this wonderful field!

SPSS

I have been using SPSS to analyze and interpret data for over 4 years. The last two years I completed original research projects in which I conducted high-level statistical analyses with extensive survey data sets. Ultimately that was used for my master's thesis in research psychology.
