US University Admissions Prep: SAT tutoring, essay writing, interviewing

I specialize in tutoring and consulting related to the US university admissions process. This includes SAT and SAT II prep, essay writing, interviewing tips, and helping you create a compelling narrative to send to US universities. I was admitted into Harvard, Yale, MIT, Dartmouth, UC Berkeley, UCLA, and a few others, and have been tutoring people of all ages.

I know this process can be daunting, but I truly believe every student has a unique and amazing story to share. I am committed to helping the applicant shine in all areas of the admissions process, and to help them feel more at ease during it.

International Baccalaureate Higher Level History. (Essay Writing for Papers 1, 2 and 3)
History Higher Level can be an extremely challenging class, not only incorporating the skill of essay writing but also that of memorising swathes of facts. As a recent graduate of the IB Diploma who achieved a 7 in History HL, I know exactly what it takes to achieve the top grades. I have designed my course to gradually build upon essay structure, planning and writing as skills. We will begin by identifying weak points in your own technique and then tailor the course to what suits your needs. I will help you to be able to be prepared for a myriad of different exam topics which may show up and provide you with exam techniques which are essential for reaching the higher grades. I will assign homework for some lessons to track your progress.
