Named after Alex Trebek, the host of the TV game show Jeopardy!, I have always had a passion for knowledge and learning. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I attended Saratoga High School and graduated magna cum laude from UC Berkeley with degrees in Rhetoric and Political Science and minors in Human Rights and Entrepreneurship.
During my college years, I immersed myself in a gamut of activities that ranged from directing the largest student-run tax-assistance center in Northern California to conducting a massive field experiment on religious minorities in India. As a result, I am always up for a game of trivia on any topic (all in preparation for making my own Jeopardy! debut).
At AJ Tutoring, I help students with US history, English, and the SAT. For me, there is nothing more fulfilling than seeing the “A-ha!” moment when my student figures out a puzzling problem. I focus on customizing each session and attempting to personalize academic subjects to meet the needs of individual students’ learning styles. I take pride in patiently guiding students through the complexities of different subjects and demystifying the test-taking process. With a strong support structure, I believe that anyone can succeed in classes and on exams, and I do what I can to facilitate academic growth and intellectual curiosity in my students.
Outside AJ tutoring, I can be found writing children’s books, attending or participating in slam poetry events, exploring Northern California, and engaging in public service for the local community.
