I help students increase their SAT/ACT scores, and write the sort of college essays that admissions officers are looking for. 

-Personalized Approach

For all of my services, my approach is about catering to who you are as a learner. Unlike other tutor companies that offer a one-size-fits-all model, I don’t limit my expectations based on where you’re at to begin with, but instead adjust my guidance depending upon your progress. This means helping students receive the kind of scores, and write the kind of essays that they never thought they could.

-Connecting with Students

Helping students grow as thinkers means getting to know who they are. The more a student trusts me, the more honest they are about what they’re needing. I consider personal connection a vital part of my work; it not only makes tutoring more effective, it can even make it fun!

-About Me

I graduated Cum Laude from Princeton University in 2017 with a B.A. in English and a certificate in Creative Writing. I have spent most of my life around the college process, having worked under my father, a private college counselor based out of Westchester, NY for years. I am a master tutor for both the SAT and ACT, as well as a skilled college essay coach.

Visit my website for more information. I'm based out of Berkeley and would happy to travel to you or work with you online.
