Hello, my name is Dr. Lena M. and I am a 34-year-old female who grew up as an immigrant in the United States learning English at an ESL level when I was in elementary school. I have overcome many challenges and wish to help my students as well know that anything is possible with discipline and motivation. I believe that learning can be fun and it is my job to help you overcome your fears like I once did. All my experiences growing up lead me to want to help other students grow. Hence, I have been tutoring students since I was in college at UCLA (over 10 years of experience with all age ranges and special learning needs). 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 help students learn the concepts and theories in a fun way.
Regarding my educational background, I have studied and finished my doctoral education in Psychology and Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) at an Honors level (PSI CHI) and have been a doctor since 2017. My GPA has always been above average (3.8 and 4.0) and I have had the opportunity to teach many psychology classes in graduate school (Couples Therapy, Diversity and Multiculturalism, Research, Practicum, etc). I also understand the process of dissertation and have gladly helped many students with the development of their topics as well as the formatting/editing of their thesis.
I am currently a professor, educator, mentor, and editor at Alliant International University and take my students assignments very seriously. I make sure to do the same with my Wyzant students that I tutor and deliver my 100%. In addition, I am the President, Founder, and Program Director of my Non-Profit Charity. Within this organization/business, I have mentored and helped many students in high school to graduate school with their career development, writing skills, reading, resume building, presentation skills, speech, confidence and English. I take pride in my work because I have been given many opportunities to help students who have struggled with their educational and vocational choices.
In all, my approach and philosophy is to work collaboratively with my students and prioritize what they want to study in an optimistic way. Once we have organized the content 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.
Please contact me regarding what area you need help in with your journey to success and what days/times you would like to meet (online or in person). I highly recommend and believe that scheduling an initial consultation/tutoring session in person/online 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.

Psychologist with excellent teaching and organizational skills
Dr. Lena, is very organized. This is a great skill! She launched my project with organizing it from the tiniest detail (this set a firm foundation) for us to work from. She’s really knowledgeable and is willing to learn new information- takes the time to learn new things on her own time which enhances our sessions. So far, I am really pleased and thankful for her.ANI, 16 lessons with Lena

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.Kelly, 17 lessons with Lena
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.Michael, 26 lessons with Lena
