Raised in Orange County, I call the Bay Area home after attending Stanford University, where I graduated with a BA in philosophy & religious studies and an honors in the arts.
I have had the pleasure of mentoring and teaching students for several years. In high school, I taught younger students math and piano. In college, I coached high school students through college essays and applications. Beyond academics, I’ve taught students of varying ages wilderness skills as a camping and backpacking trip leader. These various teaching outlets have together solidified my belief in the power of accessible education while increasing my agility and empathy as an instructor. Whether I’m teaching multiplication tables or reading comprehension, I am committed to creating a positive and fruitful learning experience for my students—one that is patient, non-judgmental, and tailored to their individual needs.
Having achieved a perfect score on the SAT, I know firsthand that standardized tests like these are not just about inherent talent. I am confident that with smart study strategies and perceptive instruction, any student can improve their test-taking abilities. I’ve experienced the overwhelming, pressure-cooker nature of high school academics myself. I bring compassionate and strategic instruction to my work with students so that they can navigate this demanding era of their lives with the utmost confidence.
When I’m not tutoring, I love crocheting, going to see new plays and movies, and hiking to cold creeks.
