About Taylor


Bio

I am a graduate of Amherst College and the Pepperdine School of Law. I received my Bachelor of Arts in English and studied abroad in the Dominican Republic for Spanish. I am also admitted to practice law in the state of California. Currently, I have a full time job with a legal education company that I thoroughly enjoy!

I love helping students one on one, which is why I am here!

I am a graduate of Amherst College and the Pepperdine School of Law. I received my Bachelor of Arts in English and studied abroad in the Dominican Republic for Spanish. I am also admitted to practice law in the state of California. Currently, I have a full time job with a legal education company that I thoroughly enjoy!

I love helping students one on one, which is why I am here!

During law school, I traveled extensively, clerking for the Rwanda Supreme Court, researching human rights issues in Ecuador, and participating in a service trip to Thailand. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about English, Literature, and Writing. In my experience helping students prepare for Standardized Tests, we always seem to have the most fun and see the most improvements when we work on the Writing portions of exams. I am a firm advocate of education and developing the ability to write. In my spare time, I love yoga, training for the LA marathon, cooking, and making jewelry.

Below is a record of my standardized test scores to give you background as to my tutoring abilities.

SAT Composite 2310
SAT Math 800
SAT Verbal 710
SAT Writing 800
LSAT 163

While I am able to tutor in a diverse range of subjects, my training in law school makes me particularly well suited for helping others to develop their writing skills. I also have extensive experience editing professional articles, and am able to help edit academic papers as well.

A Very professional Tutor

We went over my essays. Taylor did a very good job with pointing out the issues i missed and help me to improve my essays very much, She was very knowledgeable person. Thank you

Bez, 1 lesson with Taylor

Great tutor

Working with Taylor was absolutely awesome and fun. She always arrived earlier than I did and also came with great preparation so that we could work so smoothly. Earning a paralegal certificate seemed a long way, and it almost seemed impossible. After taking three sessions with Taylor (each two hours or more), I am now fully confident I will be able to get the certificate. I will be happy to write another review after I get the certificate.
