My undergraduate degree is in Chemistry, from Caltech; I also have a Stanford law degree. I have taught test prep for the SAT, ACT, GRE, and LSAT (TestMasters). High school courses I have taught include: Precalculus, Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus, Chemistry (through AP), Physics, SAT prep. After a brief career as a lawyer, I taught LSAT prep...

I have taught math and science in Los Angeles area independent schools (Harvard-Westlake School, Polytechnic School, and Windward School) for 20 years. My undergraduate degree is in Chemistry, from Caltech; I also have a Stanford law degree. I have taught test prep for the SAT, ACT, GRE, and LSAT (TestMasters). High school courses I have taught include: Precalculus, Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus, Chemistry (through AP), Physics, SAT prep. After a brief career as a lawyer, I taught LSAT prep classes and also helped many aspiring law students write their personal statements for their law school applications. My specialty is Chemistry, and I have a track record of over 90% of my students passing the AP Chemistry exam.

As a classroom teacher, I am responsive to each student's needs, adjusting instruction according to formative feedback I collect frequently. In a one-on-one tutoring situation, I can apply that approach in a way that offers immediate results. My goal when tutoring is to leave the pencil in the student's hand. I act as a coach, helping you perfect your skills, knowledge, and deep understanding. My years of teaching experience have allowed me to hone my skills in the area of identifying key misconceptions. I am able to zero in on what the misunderstanding is, and can address it head on. Because I work as an educator full time, my availability is weeknights and weekends. If you prefer in-person tutoring, I can come to your home. I appreciate a 12-hour cancellation notice, especially if I am traveling to you.
