I've passed the CSET General Science I and II, as well as the CSET Chemistry test. I am a tutor with 10 years of experience preparing students for university, for standardized tests, and for their own academic pursuits in mathematics, science, and English. I have been employed at a number of quality college/standardized test preparation academies since 2003. My duties included teaching classes and tutoring one on one in preparation for SAT, ISEE, AP, and SAT II Subject tests as well as counseling students regarding college and/or scholarship applications. I received a full tuition scholarship to USC as an undergraduate, and I have many years experience with students who are preparing for university. I can counsel students on the best ways to prepare themselves in the pursuit of merit-based scholarships at our nation's top universities. I'm also happy to work by Skype if you prefer.
When I am helping you or your student in a subject you find difficult, my method is to identify your roadblocks and misunderstood concepts and then to explain them in a simple, orderly way that connects to the rest of the course or subject.

If these basic ideas are never explained correctly in the first place, it is extremely difficult to be successful long-term in the class. My personal guarantee is that I will patiently and thoroughly explain concepts until you are confident in your understanding. We will build up proficiency and knowledge from there.

I received an 800 on the math portion of both the SAT I and GRE; both my SAT I and GRE verbal scores were in the 700s; I received a perfect score on 3 out of 4 sections of the ACT. I was a National Merit Scholar. I received a dual degree from USC: a BA in English Literature and a BS in Environmental Studies with a Chemistry emp
