About My Tutoring:
I teach writing & reading for the SAT and Japanese. My teaching will focus initially on foundational material and then be customized to your learning needs. I expect you to be willing to work on the material together, and I hope that you will not only significantly improve but also increase your confidence in using language. It may seem impossible now, but with practice and guidance I think you might be surprised at what you can do.

About Me:
I love learning new things! I came to UC Berkeley in part because I spent one year of my childhood abroad in Germany and wanted to better understand the world. I’ve gotten a perfect score on the SAT’s writing portion and studied Japanese for 5 years, including 2 years abroad, for a Bachelor’s in the language. I read like crazy and play music in my spare time.

I also love helping other people learn new things, which is why I have tutored students from 10-60 years old (mostly 20 year olds) and am comfortable with all ages. During one of those years in Japan, I tutored English at a language school; I have another year of experience privately tutoring a co-worker in writing and 1.5 years of experience substitute teaching in K-12 classrooms. The goal of my tutoring is not simply to give you information but also to show you how worthwhile and even enjoyable the learning process can be.

Please contact me, and I'll be happy to increase your potential.
