Hello, my name is Dr. Lena and I am a 32 years old female who has studied Psychology and Marriage and Family Therapy. I have been tutoring students since I was in college at UCLA (over 10 years of experience with all age ranges). I am very passionate when it comes to teaching and helping my students learn at their pace with no judgment. I enjoy psychology and all subjects and hope to help students learn the concepts and theories in a fun way.

In all, I like to work collaboratively with my students and prioritize what they want to study. Once we have organized the things that need to be studied I prepare activities and strategies for studying. I believe that sticking to a routine together will help us get to know each other so that we become comfortable working together.

In addition, I have majored all my life in psychology coursework. My GPA has always been above a 3.5 and I have had the opportunity to teach many psychology classes in graduate school.

Please contact me for an appointment only to discuss your personal needs and if you would like to know more about my studies as a Doctor of Psychology. I believe that scheduling an initial consultation/tutoring session will be the most beneficiary for you because we can assess whether or not I am a good fit for you. In all, my top priority is to make you feel comfortable and empowered. I will guide you step by step in any area you feel you are not understanding.

The Cheerleader Our Daughter Needed

Lena has been the reading angel our 7 yr old daughter needed. She was able to connect instantly with her and brought enthusiasm to a subject that felt daunting. Our daughter's attention issues and specific learning styles may always need an individualized path, but in helping her find that excitement for reading and learning despite her struggles, she has given her a gift that will propel her into the school year and be something for her to reflect on for life.

Transformatory Tutor

In life, a lot of people teach us things. From riding a bike to reading a book. As such, we find a lot of different teaching styles. Lena, has a way of connecting with her students in a way I have not experienced much in my life. And as a result, she was able to help transform me from nearly failing a class to getting consistent grades that I actually wanted. I highly recommend Lena and her services. You will be very pleased with the results. Happy tutoring.
