I graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Cognitive Science and a minor in Rhetoric. I worked as a writing and computer science tutor at UC Berkeley, and I love editing essays, discussing literature, and dissecting rhetorical argument in my spare time. I have extensive experience in tutoring, working with students from elementary to college age, and mentorship. My goal is to provide you with my best tools of experience, knowledge, and support to foster your learning. I look forward to working with you.
