I am a graduate student working toward a Master's in Music Therapy in the neurologic approach at the University of Miami. I received my Bachelor of Music with a Concentration in Performance and an option in Education from California State University, Long Beach. Throughout my training I have had the opportunity to work with several different age groups and client needs in an educational setting, ranging from preschool children all the way to college test prep. I love working with clients to find a personalized strategy so they can reach their academic goals. My approach to tutoring is not necessarily ground-breaking, but I firmly believe that sometimes the best tutor is the one who can find three different ways to say the same thing. We all have different learning styles, and the most effective academic strategies all begin with finding what works for us and sticking with it. In my academic training, I have worked closely with children and adults with different exceptionalities and special learning needs including ADHD, Autism spectrum disorder, Down's syndrome, and Cerebral Palsy. I tutor a broad range of topics, but I particularly enjoy teaching reading and writing skills, study skills, and organization. Sometimes it takes a little ingenuity, a little trial and error, and a lot of patience from both student and tutor, but I am passionate about integrating a student's individual strengths and interests into their study strategies. In my experience this is the best way to develop meaningful skills that a student can take with them and apply to lifelong learning. In my free time, I love reading, making and listening to music, running, and going to the beach.
