I will actively listen to the parent/guardian to understand the goals they have for their child. This information will be combined with initial assessments of the child's skills, abilities, and needs to develop a program that uses the child's strengths to improve the area of need. Lessons are developed from the interests that the students have. Communication about the child's progress will be ongoing. Students I have tutored in the past have made substantial progress in a brief period of time.

I take an individual, evidence-based approach to help students. I prioritize helping a student identify how they best learn. My students will identify their goals, make a plan with specific skills that are needed to achieve a goal, and then have a concrete way to track their progress. Throughout our time together, we will reflect on what worked or what didn’t work for them to reach their goal. My professional background is in psychology, working with children at an applied behavioral analysis day clinic for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, completing reading diagnostic assessments and intervention, and writing academic and psychological recommendations for special education under supervision.

B.S.: in Education with a Specialization in Adolescence to Young Adult Integrated Language Arts with a minor in English, Bowling Green State University

1 year of teaching, 5 years of tutoring

PreK-12th+

 

My focus as an educator and teacher is primarily around fostering student confidence and resiliency. Studies show that when students feel confident in themselves, they are more willing to take on new challenges, try again when they perceive that they have failed, and have a growth mindset. This is not an immediate fix, but is something that takes a while to grow in each student, but I take time each session to continue to grow this love of learning, and love of making mistakes and growing from them. I am skilled in one-on-one and group settings, from pre-kindergarten, all the way to PhD candidates who need an editor.
Each lesson is tailored to the student.
