EducationI hold a Masters degree in Secondary Education (GPA 4.0/4.0), and before that I graduated summa cum laude (GPA 3.83/4.0) from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Hispanic Studies. I have taken university-level classes in Economics, German, Math, Art History, Psychology, Spanish, Cognitive Science, Communications, Communicative Literature, Health and Societies, Marketing, Anthropology, Statistics, Near Eastern Languages and Cultures, Physics, and Geology.
ExperienceI have been tutoring for over 10 years, and I have tutored almost all subjects as well as SAT and LSAT prep. I scored a 2340 (780M, 780CR, 780W) on the SAT and I scored in the 99th percentile on the LSAT (176).
I tutored for over four years at Academia Education in California (www.academiaeducation.com), where I tutored everything from history (U.S. & European) to English, Spanish, basic biology and basic physics.
I also worked for an SAT prep company called Revolution Prep (www.revolutionprep.com). I taught SAT classes (approximately 15 students per class) and also tutored students privately. All of my students improved their scores, ranging from scoring in the 900s on a first practice exam to 1700 on the real SAT, to bumping students who were scoring in the 1800s - 2000s to above 2100.
I also scored in the 99th percentile on the LSAT (a score of 176). When I was studying for the test, I took every practice test (there are ~60 published practice tests) twice. This is a huge benefit, because you want an LSAT tutor who is extensively familiar with as many practice problems as possible. I also own every published LSAT, as well as the PowerScore books. I have betweeen 20 and 30 books altogether, and as my tutoree, you would be able to use any of my materials that you wished to use. In addition, I took the TestMasters prep course - so I would be able to teach you the most important insider nuggets and testing techniques from this class. I studied for the test for over a year, and can confidently say that I am highly qualified to tutor the LSAT.
I also scored a 5 on the following APs: Biology, Calculus AB, Spanish Language, Spanish Literature, Art History, European History, U.S. History, and Literature, as well as a 4 on the AP Chemistry exam.
I also have real teaching experience. I taught high school Spanish for two years in Wilmington, Delaware. I absolutely love tutoring, and helping students learn is one of my greatest passions. I am very patient and understanding with students, and I would love to help you, your son or your daughter with whatever subject they are having difficulty with.
Lastly, I have experience working with students with learning disabilities. I have worked with students who have ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, and Asperger's syndrome. I recently worked with a student who was struggling with depression, anxiety, ADHD, and bipolar disorder. With my help over a period of months, she was able to graduate from her graduate program at the University of Pennsylvania.
HobbiesI love camping and backpacking. I hiked the John Muir Trail in California, a three-week long trip of roughly 220 miles. I played soccer my whole life and now play in an adult league in Philadelphia. I enjoy swimming, although I don't get to go very frequently because my current gym does not have a pool. I like running, although more in the summer when it's not so cold! I also enjoy cooking new recipes. Lastly, I grew up with dogs and love them, and would like to get one eventually.
