Hey there! Let me tell you a bit about my background and the type of teaching I do. I was born and raised in Oakland, California where I attended the Head-Royce School. Soon thereafter, I set out for the Midwest to attend Northwestern University. In 2007, I graduated as a Dean's List student with a double major in Theatre
, and I have been active in the arts and education fields ever since. Although I have split my time between Los Angeles and Chicago since graduation, I am currently living and working in Chicago as a teacher, actor, and artist.
I have been a teacher and tutor for the past seven years on the West Coast and in Chicago. I have led seminars and served as an instructor at academic institutions such as UC Berkeley, Stanford, UCLA, and the University of San Diego. I have also worked with several of the industry's leading academic companies such as RevolutionPrep, Education Unlimited, FunSmart Education, and the Stanford Humanities Lab. I have extensive experience in test preparation
for the ACT
, and SAT II
Subject Tests. I also tutor most school subjects in grades 7-12, specializing in all levels of math
, and I have training and experience working with students with learning disabilities, such as dyslexia
I also offer specialized guidance in essay writing
, and can assist with research papers, argumentative essays, standardized test essays, college admissions essays, and creative writing. In the Summer of 2009, I served as the lead Writing Instructor and College Counselor at Education Unlimited's College Admissions Prep Camp, where I guided students through the difficult admissions process, covering everything from finding the right colleges, completing application work, crafting personal statements, learning admissions strategies, and conducting college interviews. I have experience working in the Admissions Office of a Big 10 University, and currently work as a private college consultant for high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
I am a dedicated, energetic teacher who always sets the bar high for myself and my students. And, most importantly, I always leave my clients thoroughly satisfied and impressed with the progress that my students have accomplished. Please contact me if you have any questions about my background, experience, or the many types of services I provide! Thanks for visiting... and I hope to hear from you soon!
