Read reviews that mention:
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
While my rates are generally hourly, I offered discounted rates with when buying 10, 20, and 30 hour packages. I charge more for more specialized help (e.g. college, law, nursing, business, graduate school) and there can be premiums on jobs for which the time crunch require me to drop everything. Depending on the situation, I may offer deals for returning clients and may offer a finder's fee for clients who bring in referrals.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Establishing a personal connection with my clients is essential. If we vibe, trust develops and communication improves and everything gets easier. Sometimes I'm asked to help clients in last-minute situations -- you're already stressing, so my first job is to reduce that as much as possible. From there, it's all about being 1st Rate: Reliable, Attentive, Thorough, and Expedient. Once you can trust you have an ally at your side, the impossible suddenly becomes manageable.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I just recently passed the California Bar Exam and am in the process of becoming a licensed attorney in California. I received my Juris Doctor (J.D.) from the University of Notre Dame Law School in 2018 and am also a Certified Information Privacy Professional, specialized in privacy law in the United States. Furthermore, I am the founder and CEO of First Honors, an educational consulting company focused on mentorship and tutoring based in Southern California. I am also a Certified Independent Educational Consultant (IEC) and received my certification at UCI. Moreover, I graduated from UCLA for undergrad in 2013 with two Bachelor's of Arts (B.A.s) degrees in International Developmental Studies and Political Science, as well as, a minor in Film, Television, and Digital Media. My diverse educational background has prepare me with indispensable skills and expertise in a myriad of disciplines and industries, which has allowed me to cultivate the requisite substantive knowledge in diverse subject matters for my students. I am also highly involved with the community and fraternal organizations and know the value of feeling someone relates to you.
