I am a patient and compassionate tutor. I love to teach and I love to see the understanding light up your eyes! I have been tutoring ever since high school, having always been strong academically. I graduated valedictorian from my high school, with an IB diploma, from the International School of Kenya, where I studied for all of grades 1-12. This level of schooling even gave me college credits at Yale. Although strong in sciences, my language skills are such that I scored equally high in both Math and Verbal SATs (This was before the separate writing section). When applying for college, I applied to 5 schools and was admitted to all five: Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Columbia and Bryn Mawr.
At Yale, I majored in Biology, and went on to work in Cell Biology research for a time. Soon after, I went on to study acupuncture and Chinese medicine, and have been practicing ever since. Combined with growing up abroad and traveling extensively with my parents, I have exposure to a lot of cultures, languages and situations.
All of this life and academic experience means that I will find a way to meet you where you are comfortable and coach you to where you want to go. I am very creative in finding ways to tap into your passion and make your required subject as exciting and interesting as possible. I am so looking forward to working with you to meet your goals!
