About Margarit

During my 7 years as an academic and professional scholar, I have gained expertise in scientific research and writing. I'm currently working on my second Master's degree in Psychology at the University of Southern California. I received my first Master's degree from the University of Chicago, after which I worked at the University of California, Los Angeles in an academic research organization for 5 years. I have written over 30 college and graduate level essays and published in over a dozen peer-reviewed journals.

I believe that my profound appreciation and background in psychology is what makes me different from other tutors. I not only understand learning, memory, and cognition from a theoretical and empirically-validated perspective, but I also have a keen awareness and intuition about people and their needs. I believe that we are all unique and capable of achieving greatness, not by an inborn talent or hardwired skill, but rather as a product of effort and perseverance. With this mindset, I value each person's individuality and I am able to guide them towards capitalizing on their strengths and improving on their weaknesses for optimal success.

Lastly, I truly enjoy working with people and I take pride in helping them learn and improve. I've worked extensively with undergraduate students to polish their personal statements and get accepted into prestigious graduate programs like Berkeley, Yale, Columbia, and UCLA.

As your tutor, I will be patient, accomodating, and understanding of your unique needs and I will exceed your expectations with honesty and integrity. My schedule is flexible and I am available upon immediate notice.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to achieving greatness with you!

Approved subjects

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.
