Olivia

I am currently completing undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Women's and Gender studies at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Prior to this, I spent two years at William Jewell College studying elementary education with a concentrated area of study in English. I have worked as an assistant teacher in 4th, 5th, and 6th grade classrooms, as well as in homeschool settings. I have also worked as a tutor for children ages 5-15 with learning disabilities: I taught phonemic awareness as a means to increase fluency and accuracy in reading and spelling.

I have tutored a broad range of subjects, but have more in depth knowledge of English. This is also my favorite subject to teach, which I attribute to my love of books and literature. The teachers I have had who have stood out to me all had common characteristics: they presented their subjects in a way that caught my interest. clarified difficult topics and led me through complex problems, and put knowledge into context that was relevant to me and my life. I view myself as a facilitator of learning, rather than someone who simply delivers information to students. When working with students, I am always conscious of their different learning styles and rates. Furthermore, feedback from students has been vital to my process of growth as an educator. I learn from them just as much as they learn from me.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, and traveling; I also volunteer with the UMKC Women's Center and will be interning with MOCSA (Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault) next semester as a domestic violence intervention and response intern.
