I am a PhD student at UC Berkeley in computer science and a former Stanford student (BS in computer science and mathematics, Class of 2019), offering academic tutoring, college counseling, competition and test prep services. 

In the past, I have worked with students, advising them on college preparation (essay writing, application preparation, putting together a four-year high school plan, etc.), tutoring them in most academic subjects (I am familiar with over 25 AP courses, and have tutored IB curriculum, as well as other standard middle and high school and first/second-year college courses). I also regularly work with students on competition preparation for competitive math, science olympiads and science fairs, as a former participant and winner of many of these competitions (Intel ISEF first place winner, Intel STS national finalist, etc.). When I applied to college, I was accepted at the top institutions (Stanford, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, MIT, etc.) and am happy to help provide my expertise to help you and your student navigate middle and high school academics and preparation for the college application process. 

Rates: tutoring services (150-250/hr), college counseling (350/hr), essay editing (500), competition prep (300-500/hr).
