Hello! I'm very excited that you are embarking on this enlightening journey, and I'd be happy to help you as you pursue your educational endeavors! I primarily tutor in PSAT/SAT/ACT test preparation, English, and mathematics up through trigonometry. I am also available to read over, comment on, edit and correct essays and other writings.

I'm highly motivated and encouraging as a teacher. I graduated with a Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics from Biola University with High Honors and Cum Laude from the University of California, Los Angeles, with a Bachelor of Arts in English and a minor in Social Thought and departmental honors. I had multiple appearances on the Dean's Honors List and numerous honor society memberships under my belt. On the 2004/2005 SAT, I scored a 1520 out of the then possible 1600. I also scored 800 in Writing and 780 in Math IIC.

In high school, I went through the rigorous International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement programs, successfully completing the classes and tests in English, Spanish, Economics, Physics AB, U.S. History, and Calculus AB/BC, as well as earning medals in Biology and Geography of Non-Western Cultures.

Besides tutoring, I also teach SAT Writing and Critical Reading through Elite Educational Institute, which named me 2012's Teacher of the Year, and have been the graduate coordinator at the Biola University Writing Center.

Great experience! — Easter is an awesome tutor! My daughter was nervous at first but then immediately was calmed and came out of their lesson calling Easter a miracle worker. I wish I would have obtained her services earlier in the year but very grateful to have her helping my daughter in time for finals. We already made a second appointment. Thank you for Easter! ...
