About

Hi, I’m Leyla! I’m a recent graduate of UCLA (‘21) and Santa Monica College (‘19). I’ve mentored students of all abilities, ages, and backgrounds for the past 5 years of my life and counting. I love helping students reach both their academic goals but also their personal goals in life. Some of my hobbies include snorkeling, swimming, water polo, going to theme parks, cooking, reading, hiking, and traveling. If you book a session with me, we’ll have lots of fun but also we’ll get down to it in helping discover what’s your path to succeeding in your life journey! Thanks for reading!

My process

I love working with students 1-1 and also in small groups. I help guide my students to their answers and mentorship by providing thoughtful and critical advice while giving them tips and tricks on how to be successful and how to stand out in the college application process. My goal during my sessions with my students is really for them to be empowered to be their own decision makers in making the right choices to be successful during and after the college application process. I look to be a mentor to the students I come across working with in my sessions.
