I am a recent UC Berkeley graduate and aspiring medical school student! I have worked as a tutor since I was in high school, helping students with basic math, writing, and english. I worked to develop their reading comprehension and literary analysis skills as well as essay writing skills and have occasionally tutored high school seniors to improve their SAT writing scores or college admission essays. I love teaching kids and helping them develop their own unique plans for success. I, myself, had tutors to help me out with my schoolwork and I would love to have the opportunity to pass down the knowledge and strategies that helped me succeed in high school and in college.

If there one thing I enjoy the most, it is seeing improvement in my students. While I can often see progress during our sessions, nothing feels better than when a student shows me an improved test grade or even a great overall semester grade. While grades are not always the best scale of a student's ability, it is always great having a tangible result as it makes me feel like I did my best as a mentor and a tutor. Throughout my time as a tutor, I have seen many of my students progress into bright confident scholars.

If you have any questions about a subject or a topic in which I can help a student become better prepared, please do not hesitate to contact me! I am always wiling to accommodate and help you in anyway that I can.

Provided Helpful Tips

We went over my weak areas in SAT Reading and Writing and I was able to learn how to approach problems a different way. She was very helpful in explaining why certain answer choices were wrong or right and showed how the questions may not be as difficult as they seem.
