Judy L.

Senior Center Director

Judy grew up in Valencia, California and currently lives in Koreatown with her family and two long-haired dachshunds. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, with a degree in Integrative Biology. After college graduation, she uncovered her talent and passion for teaching while working with students of all grade-levels.

Whether in the classroom or private settings, she honed her craft, now comfortably able to teach any subject. Judy firmly upholds the belief that each child possesses not only the ability to learn but also the potential to succeed. In her eyes, it is the combined effort of educators and parents to uncover the best pathway for each student’s growth. As part of the Sylvan team, she aspires to create a positive impact on kids’ lives by nurturing their foundational skills, essential for thriving in school. Through this journey, she aims to elevate their confidence and foster the understanding that learning can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience. When she’s not at work, Judy enjoys spending time with her family, dogs, and significant-other, practicing her faith, playing the flute and piano, rollerblading, longboarding, and playing video games.
