Bio

I believe that every student benefits from focused, one-on-one attention from a qualified instructor. That's why I enjoy helping children and adults who are struggling with a subject or who need additional support in order to reach the next level in their educational journey.

I believe that every student benefits from focused, one-on-one attention from a qualified instructor. That's why I enjoy helping children and adults who are struggling with a subject or who need additional support in order to reach the next level in their educational journey.

As the child of a college professor, I have always held a deep respect for the relationship between instructors and students. With my students, I value hard work, persistence, and mutual respect. I believe that all students are capable of excelling in their studies. I look forward to helping you (or your child) achieve your educational goals!

I graduated from University of Redlands with a B.A. in English and Creative Writing. I also completed an M.F.A. in English and Creative Writing from University of California, Riverside. I hold a valid California teaching credential and I taught in the K-12 setting for several years. I have worked as a private tutor with WyzAnt since 2013.

I am able to assist K-12 students, as well as adult learners. I specialize in helping students prepare for standardized tests and assessments such as the SAT, ACT, GED, CBEST, or CSET.

I am Leading Edge Certified as a teacher in online and blended learning. I'm familiar with most common online-course platforms, including Blackboard, Canvas, Haiku, and Edgenuity. I enjoy assisting those who need additional support and guidance in order to be successful in their online course.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Great SAT tutor.

Excellent rapport with my son. He came home really enthused that she was teaching him so much. She is top of the mark when it comes to SAT tutors! Very punctual and easy to communicate with. She is patient and really makes sure that the student is grasping things before moving on to another topic. I would highly recommend her and am very satisfied.
