Barnard College, Columbia University (History)
My academic background is in History; I am qualified to teach US History on a college level. I went to Barnard for undergrad and UCLA for graduate school. I usually work with students starting in junior high and above. High schools don't teach students how to write essays; I love helping them learn how easy it is to organize their thoughts and craft a well-thought-out essay, whether it's for class or for college applications. As someone with a 16-year old sister and 14-year old brother, I'm aware of the school process in Los Angeles, and look forward to equipping you and your child with the tools and tips to get through it successfully.
My favorite part of teaching is helping students learn how to learn. We each have our own unique learning style, and the key to success is finding your style and working with it. Study and organizational skills are also vital. Even the most seemingly scattered brain can be trained to be organized. I also struggled with ADD during my earlier years, and learned how to not only work with it, but to use my particular learning difference to my advantage -- a skill I happily impart to students.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
