I completed my Bachelor's of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders at University of Illinois Urbana Champaign in 2012 and my Master's of Science in Speech Language Pathology at Saint Xavier University in 2014. Upon graduation I began work as a school based therapist, first for a special education cooperative and most recently with the Chicago charter school system. As a school based speech-pathologist I have worked with K-12 students at a variety of ability levels as well as transition aged students in a specialized program.
I love bringing my clinical skills to my work as a tutor because it allows me to break skills down to their fundamental levels. Working with students to understand the concepts at play helps them to not only get the right answer but to understand the why. This skill based learning helps students understand information more thoroughly and generalize the skills across questions more effectively. Outside of work I like to keep active through running and volunteering with a local animal shelter. My ultimate goal is to one day raise and train a dog as my partner in animal assisted therapy services.
