I take personal development and growth to be of highest importance and throw my energies making sure I'm continuing to learn and grow, and there's nothing as satisfying as sharing the knowledge and skills I've gained with others. With a BA in psychology and an empathetic eye I seek to help students find the confidence and motivation to dream big, and then take one step after another to make them come true.

I have worked with ages 4 - 14 helping them learn math, science and reading, encouraging them with lots of positive reinforcement. I taught 8th grade history with Breakthrough Collaborative, focusing on writing strong five-paragraph essays. My scores on the ACT and SAT prepare me for boosting applicants' scores and my training in liberal arts has taught me how to research and write an excellent paper. SAT Math- 800, Writing- 710, Critical reading- 740. ACT Composite score- 34.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

In the summer of 2011 I taught history to 7th graders at Breakthrough Collaborative. Additionally, I taught students ages 4 – 14 in math, reading, writing and science at SCORE! Education centers in 2007-2008. I served as a tutor for children during a service trip to San Francisco and Los Angeles in the spring of 2009 and 2010.
