*** In 2019, I was recognized as a Top 5% Wyzant Tutor. ***

I graduated from UCSD before receiving my J.D. in Criminal Law from UC Davis King Hall. I still practice and fight criminal cases as a Criminal Defense Attorney all over the state.

As a lawyer and educator, I have always been intensely passionate about helping students thrive as learners while becoming aware of their unique strengths, aspirations, and intellectual curiosities to positively impact the world.

While at UCSD, I was selected to be a Teaching Assistant for the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry. Since my days as an undergrad, I have continued to work as a tutor in underprivileged areas. I believe part of my job as a tutor is to focus not only on high school and college academia, but to also help a student explore their passions and what they wish to get out of their college.

Through my unique and holistic approach to chemistry and law, I have helped innumerable high school and college students improve their SAT 2 Chemistry scores, AP Chemistry scores, and grades in high school Chemistry. I consistently scored in the 99th percentile in all Chemistry standardized tests including the SAT 2 and AP Chemistry. I have mastered the art of imparting my test-taking skills to my students. With just four sessions of tutoring, each of my students has improved their grades at least 10%.

I love to see my students meet their goals and believe that learning is not just about grades. Learning is a life-long process and must be exciting and tailored to each individual's learning style. As an educator, I believe it is extremely important to focus not only on getting in to college, but to also explore what a student wishes to get out of college and how they wish to change the world. Being a tutor lets me inspire other people to find the best within themselves.

I applied for law school in the fall of 2010 and graduated from UC Davis in 2014. I took over 20 classes and understand the strategies to succeed at the highest level in an intense and stressful environment. I charge $400 for a two-hour session for law schools applicants to finesse their applications for law school. I also offer sessions for current law students in any of their classes. Please contact me about my unlimited tutoring package for law students.
Public Speaking

Public Speaking

The spoken word has immense power to effect social and political change. I fell in love with public speaking when I heard Luther King Jr.'s "I have a Dream" speech in 7th grade. My first foray into public speaking was at UCSD. I was an active member of the mock trial team for two years and played the role of an attorney in mock criminal cases. My passion for public speaking intensified in law school - I was a member of the UC Davis Mock Trial & Moot Court teams. I saw first hand the real power of advocacy by passionate speakers as a prosecutor for the Sacramento County District Attorney's Office and now as a Criminal Defense attorney for the Office of the Public Defender in San Francisco County.

Test Preparation

Bar Exam,

Bar Exam

The California Bar Exam is one of the hardest, if not thee hardest in the country. The CA Bar is not just a test of knowledge, it's also a test of strategy and skills. When I took the CA bar in July 2014 and passed, only 48.6% of Californians passed. In July 2015, the pass rate was even lower. The ABA is making the tests more difficult to reduce the number of lawyers in CA. I took Barbri for my prep course. I have a very recent and in-depth understanding of the time a J.D. needs to invest to pass, the prep needed to succeed, and strategies to pass this very difficult test.

Insightful, Efficient, and Understanding Tutor

Anjali helped me with editing my college essays, and in just a few days she was able to guide me into editing my essays so they display who I am powerfully and concisely. She is kind and makes you feel comfortable working together while being time efficient. Additionally, you can tell just from speaking with her that she is extremely intelligent, insightful, and genuinely interested in helping her students succeed. I have no regrets choosing Anjali to provide feedback through this process, and would highly recommend her tutoring and essay editing skills to anyone! UPDATE: Got into my first choice university!!! Thank you so much Anjali, couldn't have done this without you.

Knowledgeable AP Chemistry tutor

I had Anjali as a tutor for my AP Chemistry course and she adapted to my last minute need as well as answered all questions. The problem sets given at school are pretty hard and she definitely took the time to work through all of them with me. She enhanced my understanding a lot, which is important in a conceptual course like chemistry. She's very knowledgeable on the subject and goes over and beyond in her explanations to make sure that I understand not only the solution, but also the associated concept.

Great tutor!

I had the best experience with Anjali! She is extremely knowledgeable and patient. She was able to break the tough concepts down that I was learning to make it more understandable. After several lessons, I felt confident going into my Chemistry final! I will be using her next quarter!

Knowledgeable and Intellectual

Anjali helped me through some ICE tables and finding values of Q and K. Then we had an in-depth conversation regarding oxyacids. She was to the point, and very capable! Would hire again. A+

Anjali assisted me with the most confusing writing assignment ever and made me feel like I was a true Defense Attorney. My confidence level has definitely boosted since before reaching out to her!

Awesome Tutor

About a couple of years ago, Anjali helped me out with my Elementary Organic Chemistry class. Through consistent tutoring sessions with her, I was able to bring up my grade from a low C to a high B. It most likely would have been an A if I had gone to her sooner. Anjali is a total sweetheart. No matter where your level of understanding is for the class material, she will accommodate her tutoring style to match you. If you’re like me, and kind of need someone to explain things in the most basic manner, Anjali is the person for you. Chemistry, overall, is one of my most weakest subjects. This is why I have returned to Anjali for the second semester of Organic Chemistry. I am absolutely sure that this class will go even better than I hoped for with the help of Anjali. To sum everything up, Anjali is a true MVP.

From C to B in seven hours.

My son was stuck at C- in his 10th grade honors chem no matter how much time he spent studying. He could not enjoy his winter break because he was stressed out about the final less than a month away. With Anjali's tutoring, he got an 85% on the final. Anjali started with a practice final then worked with him through the five chapters one by one. She had to figure out where he needed help by diligently working through practice problems since my son always thought he knew everything. She solidified his understanding of the material, shared tips and tricks so he can stop making dumb mistakes. He was actually confident the morning of the final. Thank you, Anjali.

Enthusiastic and extremely helpful, supportive, and encouraging

Choosing Anjali to help with my daughter's college applications has been the best decision. Along with giving her motivation during this stressful time, Anjali helps bring out the best in my daughter through editing her essays. Every essay she has helped with -- whether a 200 word short answer or 500 word personal statement -- has easily come out to be wonderful and ready for submission after each session ends. She has even gone out of her way to make herself available if my daughter needs an urgent last minute session or if their session goes overtime (sometimes she has given 2 hours when the session was scheduled to be 1 hour) because she is determined in her job and truly cares for my daughter's success.
