As a child I created my own standardized test that I named the CSST (Coravos School Standardized Test). I made my little sister and all of her friends take this hours-long test composed of math, language arts, and science. There were strict time limits and a customized bubble sheet. After grading the tests, I mailed score reports to everyone’s parents, complete with charts and percentiles. Clearly, I was born to be a tutor!
I grew up in Boston and graduated summa cum laude from Rice University with a degree in chemistry and linguistics. I taught in both public and private schools before moving to Los Gatos and joining AJ Tutoring, where I am proud to serve as an office director.
Throughout my years of experience as an educator, I have come to understand the importance of taking an individualized approach to learning, which is why I love the one-on-one approach at AJ. No two students learn the same way, and it is crucial that each session is uniquely tailored to their needs. With the right tools, standardized tests and math problems do not need to be sources of stress. Rather, they can become enjoyable puzzles as students develop new skills.
I have chosen a career in education not only because I enjoy learning, but also because I love to connect with people and help them overcome anxieties. Navigating the pressures of young adulthood in the Bay Area can be challenging. I am currently taking graduate courses in holistic counseling psychology, which have furthered my skills in helping students gain confidence in themselves and their academic abilities.
When I am not at AJ, you can find me creating art, walking in nature, working on puzzles, and making homemade popcorn!
