I’m from the delightful town of Santa Barbara, and attended Columbia University in New York, majoring in Computer Science. I lived in New York for several years after graduating, where I split my time between being a comedy writer and performer and working as a software developer for companies like Bank of America and Venmo. In addition to writing and performing comedy, which I still do, I enjoy hiking, cooking, and exploring around the east side of LA.
MY TEACHING EXPERIENCE
I’ve been tutoring for over 14 years, since I started tutoring my fellow students when I was in high school. During that time I’ve worked with students in a number of disciplines – everything from SAT prep to comedy writing. I specialize in math, chemistry, physics, computer science and SAT prep. I’ve also worked as a writing teacher and software developer and have taught a number of students in those capacities. My students have seen their test scores and grades improve beyond their goals and have gone on to achieve high levels of academic success.
MY TEACHING STYLE
I believe that confidence is the key to learning and success and I want to give my students the confidence to succeed. I’m passionate about learning and problem solving and I want to share that enthusiasm with my students so they feel like they can tackle any discipline. With each student, I figure out what method of learning works for them and go from there to build confidence and ability.
