« I was referred to Wendy by a friend and took a leap of faith with a first call together. I'm very happy I did because I discovered a sharp tutor, who is also incredibly patient and organized. Her calm demeanor and enthusiastic personality are exactly what I needed when I'd get upset about not remembering high school math or when I fell behind on my studies due to work commitments. She helped me stay on track and design the study program that was right for me, all while staying positive and readjusting when she identified a need for it. Can't recommend her enough! »

Online Test Prep (SAT/ACT/GRE) Tutoring from UCLA alumni with 10 years of experience

Methodology

I graduated from UCLA with a degree in Psychobiology. I prioritize connecting with students and using my psychology background to work with students with a range of strengths and weaknesses, including students with ADHD, learning disabilities, and test anxiety. I pride myself on creating a non-judgmental and accepting tutoring environment where students are free to ask questions and make mistakes.

During the first session, I will take time to understand your specific difficulties on the test, we will identify goals, and set a study schedule. Each following lesson, we will review homework (if applicable), relevant concepts, and test-taking strategies. I will monitor your progress throughout our sessions and assign targeted homework and periodic practice tests.

My tutoring style focuses on providing encouragement while asking guiding questions to engage the student in the learning process. I believe that test-taking skills can greatly improve performance and can be taught to any student, regardless of prior subject-specific knowledge level.

I understand that the testing process can be daunting and overwhelming, and I am very excited to help students do their best.

Background

I have been tutoring students aged 8-30 for 10 years. I have worked in a variety of settings, including alternative-education schools, incarceration facilities, and online private tutoring, and pride myself in creating a friendly, dynamic tutoring environment for the student to feel comfortable and learn.

Many students that I have worked with have achieved or surpassed their test-prep score goals! These scores have helped them to get into universities and become eligible for the scholarships they were striving for. It is my passion to help people through this part of their educational/career journey.
