EducationBA English, UC Berkeley
MA English, USC (3.9 GPA)
ExperienceI am a college writing instructor and English tutor. I have taught first-year composition courses at the University of Southern California and at Pasadena City College.
I also have extensive experience tutoring high school and college students. I first began tutoring students when I was an undergraduate in English at UC Berkeley. Later, as a graduate student in English at USC, I worked as a writing consultant for the University's Writing Center.
For the past five years, I have been working for a well-known, national test prep company to help students prepare for the English sections of the PSAT, SAT, and ACT. I have a strong track record of helping students who are studying for these exams raise their scores. Of course, every student is unique. But on average, my long-term students, who have committed to the process of preparing for these exams, have improved their English scores by over 300 points.
I know that college entrance exams can be intimidating. So I strive to demystify the process and help students acquire the reading and writing skills they will need not only for these tests but also later, in college.
HobbiesWhen I'm not at Starbucks guzzling too much coffee and preparing lesson plans, you can probably find me in a dance class or walking around the neighborhood with my dog, Ginger.
