San Francisco: Cambridge University graduate offers tutoring in test prep, languages and writing. Music lessons also available; enquire for details.

Methodology

Knowing how to learn, as well as what to learn, is essential to academic success. I take an integrative approach to help students master study skills and subject matter at the same time. Clear and achievable goals are essential, so I break down every subject into manageable chunks with regular assessments to give you an idea of your progress.

Whether you are excited by the subject and want to delve deeper, or whether you are frustrated with a subject that just seems too hard, I can help you take your learning to the next level. Because everyone learns differently, I believe a good teacher should be ready to explain concepts in multiple ways. My approach is highly individualized, with the right blend of patience, empathy and academic rigor for each student's needs.

Background

I am a University of Cambridge graduate with degrees in Classics, Publishing and Vocal Performance, and over the years I have worked with over twenty students to improve their language, writing and general study skills. My students have mastered ancient languages, found strategies to cope with learning disabilities, and overcome language barriers to express and advocate for themselves effectively in English.

I am also a trained opera singer and believe that music is also a type of language;
