Though I was born in Tel Aviv, Israel, I was raised right here in Sunnyvale. Throughout high school and college, I was always a huge fan of the arts, literature, and community involvement. While I could spend an entire day in the library, I found engaging with the student body and faculty through extracurricular activities to be equally rewarding. I went on to study English Writing and Literature at UCLA, and I joined school magazines and Greek Life, held various internships, and facilitated a nonprofit on campus.

I have years of experience tutoring students of all academic backgrounds and skill levels. Some of my favorite experiences have been working with second and even third language college students in creative workshops for writing, speech, and language. Raised bilingually with both Hebrew and English, I’ve come to understand the power in the craft of language. As it turns out, the pen really is mightier than the sword!

At AJ, I help my students thrive, realize their own limitless potential, and appreciate that literature can be an ally instead of a hurdle. English can be a muddy language, but a brilliant and poetic one as well. I look forward to working with students that both adore and abhor English, or perhaps simply want to improve through coaching and practice. As a test preparation tutor, I use my mastery of multiple choice and the essay to help my students improve their scores on all sections of the SAT and ACT. My students grow in confidence as they learn the ins and outs of each question type. Ultimately, my goal is for each of my students to maximize his or her potential and walk out of the testing center feeling that all the hard work paid off.

Outside of the offices of AJ Tutoring, I can be found rock climbing, practicing yoga, writing, and enjoying great quotes. As Lewis Carroll once said, “Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
