My passions are diverse and range from a love for theater to an affection for different cultures and languages and include a devotion to teaching and mental health services. I am a doctoral student currently doing an internship as a school psychologist. However, before going back to grad school, I was a teacher. I have 8+ years of experience teaching a variety of subjects (3rd & 4th grade, Pre-algebra, Algebra, Spanish, Theater Arts, ESL). I have experience tutoring elementary, middle school, and high school students both privately and for learning centers.
As part of my passion for multicultural experiences, I spent 18 months overseas as an English teacher and interview consultant. Additionally, my current career as a doctoral intern in school psychology has afforded me opportunities to provide psychological services to students with learning, behavioral, and developmental disabilities in elementary, middle, and high schools, the university clinic, and an acute mental health facility.
What makes me a great tutor is my background in the psychology of learning, my individualized teaching methods for students because they learn in different ways, and my ability to scaffold instruction so students learn strategies to develop skills on their own.
