Whether you want to boost your test scores, polish your lab reports, or improve your writing, I can help you meet your goals! My methods are fun and thorough, and you'll be surprised how much you learn!

I attended Reed College, nationally recognized as one of the most academically demanding schools in the country. Because of high performance in biology, I was hired as a biology tutor for the school's Academic Resource Center, and over three years I taught hundreds of students how to quickly absorb information, write clearly, and think critically.

I also have significant experience in both library and "bench" research, having completed a senior thesis and several National Science Foundation-funded research projects. I have presented my research orally and in papers, so whether writing or speaking, I can help you express you ideas more clearly and strongly.

After graduation, I applied to medical school. I took the MCAT this summer, scoring above the 90th percentile. If you or your student are planning on applying, I can give money-saving advice and teach strategies for the MCATS, and also proofread essays and personal statements.

I emphasize critical thinking and deep understanding as the basis for success--strengths that are useful for every subject and situation. Study with me, and you'll gain lasting improvements and lifelong skills!
