I specialize in standardized test prep and empowering families through the school/college application process. I work with students at my location in South Capitol Hill or online.

In addition to tutoring, I create test prep materials. I am a co-founder of a company that offers online diagnostics for the ISEE and SSAT, and have headed the creation of 18 full-length ISEE practice tests and 18 full-length SSAT practice tests. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Tufts University (GPA 3. 8). and though I spent 8 years on the East Coast and a year teaching in Japan, I grew up in Seattle and am an alum of The Northwest School, The Evergreen School, and Spruce Street School.

With over 10 years teaching experience and 8 yrs teaching and tutoring, I have been engaged in many aspects of education, curriculum development, and test preparation. I have been writing test prep textbooks and exams (SAT, ISEE, SSAT, SHSAT, HSPT, ELA) since 2008 and taught ISEE and SAT Test Prep with The Northwest School. I have worked with students, old and young, of diverse racial, cultural, national, socioeconomic, and learning backgrounds (students with various learning differences including ADD, ADHD, dysgraphia, etc.).

For standardized test prep, I most often coach students for 1 - 2 hours, once a week, for at least 2-3 months before their exam (sometimes as long as 6 months or a year). I can also meet with students for just a few sessions before a test to build confidence and establish familiarity with timed sections. Spring and early summer are good times to contact me for fall ISEE and SSAT tutoring as my schedule becomes full.
