About Stacy

I completed my undergraduate degree at UC Berkeley. I hold a CA teaching credential I am currently pursuing my Master's in Education at UCSD. Tutoring and teaching is more than just a part-time gig for me. I LOVE working with students to help them achieve their goals. I have three years of full-time one-on-one tutoring experience. Over the years, I have learned how to help students strengthen the underlying skills that the SAT and ACT assess. I'm not going to just watch you complete drills or assign you homework straight from the prep book. We'll work together to strengthen the areas that you need the most support in, whether it's your grammar, reading comprehension, or writing skills.

My particular expertise is in helping you craft your story. In my experience, the best essays have required 6-10 drafts. This doesn't even include the brainstorming process. I can help you through the entire process, or I can provide short term support in editing and fine tuning. I can also help you with the college selection process.

I look forward to meeting and working with you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

College Counseling

I am a UC Berkeley graduate, and I have worked full-time tutoring and advising students for the past three years. I have experience with the University of California system application process, as well as with the Common App. I have helped students begin and complete their admission essays as well as advised students in their college selection process. Students I have worked with have been admitted to UCLA, U Penn, University of Oregon, University of Boulder, and Tulane University.

Elementary Math

I have tutored students in math for the past three years. I have worked with students from grades 1-12 to strengthen their conceptual understanding of math concepts. With each student, I try to target the foundational skills that students need the most support in. I have found that students demonstrate the most growth when their individual skill level and learning strengths are prioritized over grade level content.
