I’ve written speeches for the White House and essays for magazines and newspapers in the US and UK. I'm also the author of Life in the Loop: Essays on OCD. For the last four years, I’ve guided students through the admissions process and into top schools in the US and Europe.
I graduated from Princeton with a BA in philosophy. Later, I earned master’s degrees from Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Divinity School. Prior to making the full-time switch into education, I worked in finance and politics.
For the past five years, I have helped Thai and Vietnamese students succeed on standardized tests as a teacher and curriculum specialist. My TOEFL and IELTS courses are designed specifically for each student; the focus is on building a useful bank of words, phrases, and sentence structures that will help you improve your scores dramatically.
I am from the Mekong Delta in Vietnam, but I spent most of my teenage years in Ho Chi Minh City. After graduation, I earned my bachelor's degree in Australia and a master's in New Media Studies in The Netherlands.
