UC Santa Cruz (History of Art)
Claremont Graduate University (Master's)
With over 15 years of experience teaching, I have worked with a number of students who require additional support in their studies, or seek to master a variety of subjects. Patient and dedicated to improving students' skills and abilities, my passion for teaching comes from my own love of learning, and desire to help others excel. I work directly with each student to achieve their academic potential. My experience is focused on working with high school students, college students, and adults returning to school to complete degrees in various fields. I am particularly knowledgeable in the Humanities (art, history, theory, literature, English etc.). I currently hold a Bachelors degree in art history, and a Masters degree in Cultural Studies, but have an interest in a number of academic disciplines, including psychology, business and marketing, and mathematics.
In addition to assisting students with particular subjects, I have also had great success improving students' study skills, writing and reading abilities, test preparation, and time management, all of which could be applied to any subject. My experience comes from working with a variety of programs at University of California and California State University campuses, and teaching courses for community colleges. My background working with students has provided a wealth of knowledge about different learning styles, and how to adapt to them. I am dedicated to individualized learning, which focuses on addressing each student's specific needs, and I enjoy helping students succeed at their academic endeavors. I do all I can to make the tutoring experience productive and informative.
Whether you are looking for a long-term tutor that will help throughout the year, or an occasional writing coach that will help on a particular assignment, I will do my best to help you (or your student) improve grades, understanding, and abilities. I am able to offer flexible meeting schedules and locations that work best for you, and will work with you to develop a plan for getting the most out of your tutoring sessions. Thank you.

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.
