Why I'm Helping Students Level Up their College Game

I want to empower you to learn the skills of your chosen major and pursue relationships with professors and professionals in your field so that after college you are confident in your abilities to perform at a high level and have the system to be successful in your career.

PLUS, it’s my dream that you all feel free from the anxiety and overwhelm of college.

I want you to feel motivated and inspired to do the hard work, so that you can make a positive impact in the world.

What to do When You've Fallen REALLY Behind in Class

We all fall behind. We’ve all lost motivation at one time or another—we don’t want to get out of bed to go to class, we lost sight of why we’re enrolled in chemistry, we let the homework stew inside our notebooks like leftover soup we’re too afraid to throw out.

One ambitious student emailed me to ask, what can I do when I’ve fallen really behind in class? Like, so much so that I barely know what the topic is.

Fortunately there’s a few easy steps you can take to get back on track.

What Your Grades Really Say About You

If you’ve ever found yourself grieving over a C+ or struggling to push a B to an A (or considering dropping out of college after a D or an F) this blog post is for you.

How to Get Every Sentence Completion Question on the SAT Right

Oddly enough, word choice questions, which look like the easiest to answer, give students a heck of a lot of trouble. If you’re not getting 100% or close on these types of questions, it’s not because your vocab sucks or you’re stupid, your strategy just needs to be changed.

I like to think of these types of questions as “fill in the blank” questions. They are essentially that: the test is asking you to replace one word with another that is a synonym. That means the sentence needs to mean the same thing when you replace the underlined word.

I’ll show you my strategy to get these questions correct every time.

How to Choose Which College is Right For YOU

Gah! The responsibility of it!

For those of us who feel a bit lost, a bit overwhelmed at the prospect of making a decision that will change our lives forever, I’ve got some ruminations for you that may help make the decision easier.
