I graduated from UCSD before receiving my J.D. in Criminal Law from UC Davis King Hall. I still practice and am currently a Public Defender.

As a lawyer and educator, I have always been intensely passionate about helping students thrive as learners while becoming aware of their unique strengths, aspirations, and intellectual curiosities to positively impact the world.

While at UCSD, I was selected to be a Teaching Assistant for the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry. Since my days as an undergrad, I have continued to work as a tutor in underprivileged areas. I believe part of my job as a tutor is to focus not only on high school and college academia, but to also help a student explore their passions and what they wish to get out of their college.

Through my unique and holistic approach to chemistry and law, I have helped innumerable high school and college students improve their SAT 2 Chemistry scores, AP Chemistry scores, and grades in high school Chemistry. I consistently scored in the 99th percentile in all Chemistry standardized tests including the SAT 2 and AP Chemistry. I have mastered the art of imparting my test-taking skills to my students. With just four sessions of tutoring, each of my students has improved their grades at least 10%.

I love to see my students meet their goals and believe that learning is not just about grades. Learning is a life-long process and must be exciting and tailored to each individual's learning style. As an educator, I believe it is extremely important to focus not only on getting in to college, but to also explore what a student wishes to get out of college and how they wish to change the world. Being a tutor lets me inspire other people to find the best within themselves. 

If you live outside my travel radius, still, please contact me! I tutor students farther away, should our schedule permit, for a higher hourly rate. I also have worked rather extensively with many students online-- from Texas to Boston to Canada and even India!

LIMITED SPOTS/TIMES AVAILABLE! **** Currently I get about 5 tutoring inquires a day for both in-person and online tutoring. Given my time limitations, I may not be able to accept you/your student at any given time and sometimes only online sessions may be available. Typically, I tutor about 40% in-person and 60% online at any given time.

Law

I applied for law school in the fall of 2010 and graduated from UC Davis in 2014. I took over 20 classes and understand the strategies to succeed at the highest level in an intense and stressful environment. I charge $400 for a two-hour session for law schools applicants to finesse their applications for law school. I also offer sessions for current law students in any of their classes. Please contact me about my unlimited tutoring package for law students.
Public Speaking

Public Speaking

The spoken word has immense power to effect social and political change. I fell in love with public speaking when I heard Luther King Jr.'s "I have a Dream" speech in 7th grade. My first foray into public speaking was at UCSD. I was an active member of the mock trial team for two years and played the role of an attorney in mock criminal cases. My passion for public speaking intensified in law school - I was a member of the UC Davis Mock Trial & Moot Court teams. I saw first hand the real power of advocacy by passionate speakers as a prosecutor for the Sacramento County District Attorney's Office and now as a Criminal Defense attorney for the Office of the Public Defender in San Francisco County.

Test Preparation

Bar Exam,

Bar Exam

The California Bar Exam is one of the hardest, if not thee hardest in the country. The CA Bar is not just a test of knowledge, it's also a test of strategy and skills. When I took the CA bar in July 2014 and passed, only 48.6% of Californians passed. In July 2015, the pass rate was even lower. The ABA is making the tests more difficult to reduce the number of lawyers in CA. I took Barbri for my prep course. I have a very recent and in-depth understanding of the time a J.D. needs to invest to pass, the prep needed to succeed, and strategies to pass this very difficult test.

Great for college essays!

Anjali helped me prepare my resume and personal insight questions for my UC applications this fall. She really cares about her students and is truly invested in them academically and as people. Anjali caters to the individual and helps them take their essays to the next level.

MELISSA, 5 lessons with Anjali

Great tutor

Anjali has been tutoring my college age son in Analytical chemistry. We had a difficult time finding a tutor in this subject. We tried three tutors and Anjali is by far the best. She challenges him to think through the problems and the applications of the formulas. She works problems ahead of time to make sure the time is productively used. She is flexible in schedule despite the 2 hour time difference. I really appreciate her efforts. I feel strongly that he will have an improvement in his next test score.

Susan, 8 lessons with Anjali

Passionate and knowledgable tutor

I've only had one lesson with Anjali, but I learned so much. She taught me more in one hour than all my weeks in my chemistry lecture. She makes you work for your answers so you learn the concepts, unlike many tutors who just give away answers without really explaining why. I would definitely recommend her!

Juliana, 5 lessons with Anjali

Great coach and mentor!

Anjali has shared with me some great insights on how to excel in law school finals! She's always provides thoughtful feedback on how to improve my exam taking skills and gives clear and thorough answers to all my questions. She's able to quickly spot my weaknesses along with recommendations for improvement. She's very personable and easy to work with. I look forward to my sessions!

Nina, 14 lessons with Anjali

Awesome Tutor

Anjali has been helping me out with my Organic Chemistry class for a couple of weeks at this point, and the results are definitely showing. My test scores have improved, which is totally awesome! One of the things that makes Anjali a great tutor is that she is very patient; yet, she challenges to think about the concept in different ways. Overall, she is very kind and wonderful person.

Aniqua, 1 lesson with Anjali

Great tutor for college entrance essays.

Anjali is great at explaining the approach and focus of college application essays. She is working with me on essays for a Master's degree. She explains the big picture and then works with me to break down the details.

Heidi, 16 lessons with Anjali

Knowledgeable, energetic and focus on student need/lack part to help

Knowledgeable, energetic and focus on student need/lack part to help. My daughter liked, the way Anjali helped her for the first session. Looking forward to have some good results for my daughter's final by end of this month,

Nikhil, 13 lessons with Anjali

Law Tutor

Anjali is a great listener and a clear communicator. She is also sharp, and attentive to detail. Combination of these characteristics make her a great tutor. She did a great job of identifying areas where additional points could be gained in a Bar style essay, and recommended the appropriate organizational, and substantive improvements to accomplish that.
