Hello! I have a real passion for education and I'm happy to have a chance to continue to help students and prospective students through tutoring.
I was the first person in my family to go to college. I ultimately graduated from UCLA in 2004 with a B.A. in Sociology. Although I always wanted to be a lawyer from the time I was a child, I became very interested in education and becoming a teacher. Teaching wasn't new to me, as I'd spent my high school years tutoring. I ultimately graduated from UCLA again in 2006 with a Master's in Education (specializing in curriculum & instruction) and received a single subject teaching credential in history. I taught high school history for just over two years. I taught at a low income, underresourced school in South Los Angeles. While teaching, I designed and implemented a tutoring program for my AP US History students in conjunction with the AP English teacher to help get our kids to pass the exam. Under this program, I successfully managed to have students pass the AP US History exam for the first time in at least 5 years. I also attended CollegeBoard AP US History teacher training where I was instructed in skills key to the exam by master teachers.
After transitioning to educational nonprofits, I decided to return to my original goal of becoming a lawyer. I studied intensely for the LSAT while working a full time job and brought my score up 17 points--good enough to score in the 99th percentile, and punched my ticket to Harvard Law School. While a law student, I trained to become an LSAT instructor and effectively tutored students on the LSAT. I graduated from HLS in 2012 and passed the California bar exam on my first try that same year.
I enjoy tutoring and enabling students to pursue their passions (whether it is gaining admission to the law school of their dreams or just passing a history class that is challenging), and find it rewarding when everything clicks for a student through diligent study and preparation, and faithful use of our methods.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any further questions, and I look forward to working with you! Hello! I have a real passion for education and I'm happy to have a chance to continue to help students and prospective students through tutoring.

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.
I took Barbri, a nationally recognized bar exam test preparation course. During Barbri, I completed all of the test modules. I additionally used the Kaplan study materials for the MPRE. I took the California bar exam in July 2012 and passed on my first try. In addition, I have a solid black letter law course background from my time at Harvard Law School, taking courses tested on the California bar exam beyond those required in the first year, such as Trusts & Estates, Professional Responsibility, Constitutional Law, Family Law, and Corporations.
I scored a 171 on the LSAT, which helped me attend Harvard Law School.
