I have a Masters from San Jose State University and a degree in Psychology from UC Berkeley. I am a former Kaplan instructor and have taught for a number of other companies. I can also assist you with English at all levels. I love to help others achieve their academic goals.

Additionally, I have honed excellent communication skills through my coursework at Berkeley and my active participation in Toastmasters International. I have also attained the elusive score of 800 on the SAT verbal section. Further, I scored 326 on the actual GRE, with an analytical writing score of 5.5.

Please feel free to contact me regarding the logistics. I look forward to working with you soon!

I have taught for Kaplan Test Prep & Admissions in the past and excel at standardized verbal tests. My combined score on the official GRE General Exam was 327 with an Analytical Writing Assessment score of 5.5. This includes a 96th percentile score on the verbal reasoning measure. I also scored 800 on an official SAT Critical Reading test, which overlaps with the GRE verbal reasoning measure in terms of the underlying academic content and requisite analytical skills. I love helping others to realize their academic dreams!

I competed in speech and forensics as a high school student and later as a member of the UC Berkeley Speech and Forensics team. In addition, I have been an active member of Toastmasters International for over ten years and am currently a club officer at Sundays by the Sea Toastmasters in Culver City.

Test Preparation

CBEST,

CBEST

After graduating from UC Berkeley cum laude, I entered the test prep industry as an SAT instructor at a well-known test prep company. I have since worked for several supplementary education companies, where I helped high school students prepare for the SAT and the ACT. The content of those exams overlaps considerably with that of the CBEST, and many of the recommended test-taking techniques apply to all three tests. Further, I gained first hand knowledge of the CBEST after passing the exam while applying for an emergency teaching credential. One of my long-term vocational goals is to work as a post-secondary ESL instructor, and I am passionate about helping others to enter the teaching field successfully. While my verbal reasoning skills are especially strong, I am knowledgeable about all CBEST section, including the math section.
