Experience

GRE scores (last taken July 2011): Verbal: 800 Math: 800 LSAT score (last taken October 2010): 170 I am an experienced tutor, working primarily with high school through adult students. My subjects include writing, Algebra I and II, Geometry, Precalculus, GRE and LSAT preparation, symbolic logic and college-level computer science. For math students, I work to engender a real understanding of the underlying concepts, rather than just memorization. Under test pressure you may forget what you memorize, but you won't forget what you understand. I love one-on-one teaching; there's a special magic in seeing a student "get" an idea they've been having trouble with.

Hobbies

I like swimming, reading, acting, singing, math/logic puzzles, dancing, cooking, handicrafts, and too many other things to list. Life is for living! Random things about me: - I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with my husband in 2013 - I have performed multiple times as a rappeller with Blue Lapis Light, an Austin aerial dance troupe. (www.bluelapislight.com) - English is my first language, but I also speak fairly good French as well as basic conversational Spanish and German. - I wanted to be a gymnast when I was a kid, but I've always been too tall and not strong enough. - I like dogs and absolutely love cats.
