Hello Fellow Learner! I am here to listen to and help guide you through the project(s) you're working on or the subject(s) you're studying. I have over 10 years of experience in education, 5 of which have been tutoring students one-on-one and in groups across the US- LA, HI, and NYC. I have tutored students ranging from three years of age to graduate students, in traditional grade school subjects as well as in undergraduate and graduate niche subjects. I love helping students connect with their studies in a personal way by discovering how they learn and building their confidence in continuing to learn on their own.

I earned my two Masters of Arts from Teachers College, Columbia University. The first MA is in Philosophy and Education where I studied Ancient Greek to contemporary philosophy, sharpened my analytical thinking and academic writing skills, and expanded my scope of philosophical inquiry and dialogue. The second MA is in Clinical and Counseling Psychology where I studied traditional and nontraditional psychological theories and practices, course assisted in therapy and psychology courses, and facilitated Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and mindfulness in a NYC public school as part of my practicum. With that said, my scope of philosophy and psychology are expansive and expanding- my interests and ability to interpret material range from nonwestern to traditional/western philosophy and psychology. I am up for discussion on any philosopher or theorist from any and every cultural context!

I earned my Bachelors of Arts from the University of Hawai'i at Manoa in History focusing on Native American, East Asian, Southeast Asian, South Asian, and Middle Eastern histories. I strongly believe in the power of storytelling and use storytelling to relate students to their course materials, drawing on their everyday experiences as a focal point of connection. I have taught Western Civilization and continue to tutor history as a beloved subject.

In regards to academic writing, I have experience with: 1) my personal

Came up with stories/examples to help me

Sandy really helps by giving me tons of examples for everything that I didn’t understand. I understand and believe I will remember things easier like this( I have a memory problem so my final test was supposed to suck). With Sandy’s help I stand a chance. :)

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Sandy was extremely helpful when I had to write my first college paper on philosophy. She always knew what she was talking about and guided me to finding the right answers. She helped me get through everything I needed to get done even if that meant going over the time limit. I could feel that she truly cared how I would do on the paper as she was willing to help almost any time of day. She helped proofread my essay multiple times after I had completed it. She also helped me in creating an outline for my essay before I began writing it. I felt as if I could have written an average essay by myself. However, after talking with Sandy, I realized how much I had not thought about before. And now, I know I will get an outstanding grade.
