About Isac

I earned my Bachelors of Science in Human Development with Honors at Cornell University am currently a Ph.D. candidate in clinical psychology. I have published my honors thesis on lucid dreaming in an international journal and a chapter in a recent anthology. Currently, I draw on my psychotherapeutic knowledge as I tutor young students in various subjects. As students associate material with their favorite game or band, I reuse their metaphor as often as possible. When they criticize themselves over a missed problem, I reframe the mistake as a step towards understanding and mastering the material. From my experience in school and as a tutor, I provide strategies to help students learn, remember, and recall course information. In addition, I also provide the tips and tricks for improving personal organization outside of the classroom, like study strategies and scheduling. Furthermore, I have experience instructing communication skills to groups of children through my after school speech and debate classes.

Tutored students in SAT math and raised their scores by an average of 160 points. Did alright on my SAT math section when I took it too.

Originally Pre-Med at Cornell until I fell in love with psychology, still retain the love for science.

Publish or perish is the rule in psychology, and I need to keep my writing sharp. I have helped students in English from basic grammar to SAT English to master's level theses.

If you'd like to find how you best learn, how to enjoy learning (again) or just how to get past this hurdle, send me a message. We'll find a way to use your favorite bands, shows, and games to teach you what you want to know.
