Heather

I have a strong passion for knowledge and learning that has evolved into a desire to help students achieve academic success. I place a high value on education, which has led me to seek a career in teaching and tutoring. I am currently a substitute teacher for Clark County School District, predominately working with grades K-8. I have experience tutoring with two different institutions, as well as on a private basis. I am a graduate of the University of Nevada Las Vegas. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and also received a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have tutored in a wide variety of subjects, though most of my experience is with primary and secondary students. I also tutor in test prep, including ACT Reading/Writing, SAT English/Biology, and Nevada state proficiency exams. I am most passionate about teaching psychology, English/writing, reading, and elementary/middle school math. My individual teaching style is flexible, as I feel it is necessary to cater towards a student’s unique learning style and needs. I believe confidence and self-efficacy play pivotal roles in a student’s acquisition of knowledge and ability to learn new concepts. I believe it is crucial to provide encouragement, reinforcement, and support to help students realize their unique gifts and potential. In my free time, I enjoy reading, hiking, spending time with my family, and painting.
