About Me

SUBJECTS

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

Through my years of teaching, I have learned that it is critical for the tutor to be just as engaged and dedicated in the learning process as the student. Everybody is different – we each have diverse skills, aptitudes and personal and educational backgrounds.

It is my job to “learn” the student so that we can carry out an individually stylized plan that builds on rapport and strengths and weaknesses. Thus, no lesson is ever the same; whether it means turning history homework into a basketball game, using a metronome to help someone read English more slowly and comprehend better or somewhere in between.

EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND

I recently earned my Juris Doctor from the University of Maryland School of Law focusing on international human rights and constitutional law. Among other things, I helped to defend the eviction of the members of an African tribe from their ancestral lands.

I aspire to do legal work of this type but I also would like to teach. I developed a passion for tutoring at an early age and have been instructing children and adults in various subjects since 2001.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a volunteer tutor of 8 years with the organizations Uncommon Good and MultiModal Institute (both in Claremont, CA) in most all core subjects and the SAT from 2nd grade through 12th grade.

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

I have been playing the piano for approximately 20 years and love to play anything from Bach and Beethoven to Bacharach and B.G. (yes rap music can be plucked out on the piano…somewhat). I also attend as many Dodgers and Lakers games as I can.
