More About Me
Hello! I am a Harvard-trained educator with over 15 years’ teaching experience in the areas of college readiness and admissions, academic reading and writing, and study strategies. I successfully gained admittance to my best-fit colleges, Stanford University and Harvard University, and have helped many students do the same. In addition to college consulting work, I am currently working toward completion of a PhD in Education at University of California, Irvine and am a mom to a busy 8-year-old boy. I am excited to collaborate with My Private Professor to help you meet your academic goals, and in the process, support academic resources for underserved youth!
