I graduated from National University in June of 2014 with a Master of Science degree in School Psychology along with a PPS credential to work as a School Psychologist. I am very excited to begin my new journey and career as a School Psychologist seeing that I am very passionate about working with children of all backgrounds. I feel rewarded when I see students succeed and achieve their academic goals in life. I have worked as a tutor in the past with elementary and high school students as well as being a substitute teacher at a number of private schools. In addition, I have enjoyed working as an instructional assistant for over 10 years in special education with moderate to severe and mild to moderate students with various disabilities ranging from Autism, Learning Disabilities, and Intellectual Disabilities. I love tutoring all types of students and I enjoy watching them excel in all subjects. I was born in Rome, Italy and my family moved to California when I was five years old. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from California State University, Northridge in Speech Communication. I also tutor a variety of subjects which include but are not limited to Language Arts, Reading, Math, and Writing (these are my areas of strength). In my free time I enjoy going to the movies with friends, dining out, doing Zumba, and reading books.
