All you need to know before you schedule a session

  • How do I schedule a session?
    Tutoring sessions are scheduled through Calendly. When you open this link, you'll see several options to choose from. Select the type of tutoring session you are looking for (1-hour in person, 1-hour on Zoom, etc.) and then you will be taken to a calendar. From there, select a date that works for you and then a time. You will then be prompted to fill out several fields (Name, email, etc.). Once you complete the form, you will see a confirmation and an email will be sent to you with a Calendar invite. If you are scheduling an in person session, you will write the address of where the student and I will meet (either at home with an adult present or in a public place e.g. Beverly Hills Public Library). If you are scheduling a Zoom session, the link to the meeting will be generated automatically once you submit the form.
  • What can a student get help with?
    I am able to tutor middle school and high school students in English, Math, Science, History, and French. For high school, I also offer college prep, including ACT/SAT prep, College Essay and Application help. For more specific information on what I can help with, check out the Classes/Subjects page listed above.
  • How should I communicate with my tutor?
    Email works best for me! My email is If you have any questions or trouble with setting up an appointment, this is the best way to reach me. There is also a form on this website to connect with me as well. Once you schedule a session, the page will ask for your phone number. I prefer the phone number of the parent/guardian of the student. I will call if I am having trouble finding the address or having any other difficulty getting to our scheduled session.
  • What should a student expect from a session?
    Before confirming an appointment, you will be asked to list which subject I will tutoring as well as any details that will help me prepare for meeting. I ask for these details so I can look ahead of time for any additional resources I can bring to the meeting such as worksheets, flash cards, textbooks, etc. If the student is preparing for a test, I will work with them to map out a plan to be prepared come test day. It is helpful if the student has a syllabus that lists the test dates and the subjects that will be tested. For students working on college essays, our first couple of sessions will involve brainstorming. After we get a solid idea of what the content of the essay will be, we will spend the next few sessions reviewing their writing and cleaning up errors. At the end of each session, regardless of the subject, we will fill out a progress report together that will include what the student has improved upon, what the student needs to work on, and additional resources that I recommend. This progress report will be emailed after each session.
  • How can a student get the most out of a tutoring session?
    It will be most helpful to me if a student has access to all the materials they would usually have in class such as a syllabus, their textbook, and their notes. While it's not required, it's great when a student comes to session with questions in mind and an idea of what they want to work on. If a student has completed an assignment or a part of it, this gives us a chance to review what they've gotten right and what they need to work on.
  • What background and training does my tutor have?
    I am a graduate of Beverly Hills High School and currently pursuing my degree in Neuroscience at the University of Southern California. My time as a project leader in Interaxon, an organization based at USC that teaches STEM and neuroscience lessons to underprivileged schools, has prepared me well for tutoring. In my time as project leader, I have created lessons about the brain and taught classrooms of students from elementary school to high school. Over the course of four years in this club, I have mastered the art of making learning both engaging and accessible. When I was in high school, I was a teaching assistant for the American Academy of Medicine and Surgery, a program that teaches students cardiothoracic surgical skills over the course of a summer internship at Stanford University. I also have previous experience as a tutor in French while I was in high school. I love both STEM and the humanities. While my degree is in Neuroscience, I have always excelled in English and writing. This is reflected in my overall performance at university, which has earned me a spot on the Dornsife Dean's List for students achieving a GPA of 3.5 or higher and Alpha Lambda Delta, an honor society for freshman year students who achieve a GPA of 3.5 or above in their first semester at school.
  • Which forms of payment are accepted?
    I accept Venmo or Zelle for in person and Zoom sessions. I also accept cash for in person sessions.
