Hello!

I'm very excited to meet and work with students who are looking to improve themselves!

I am currently in a Developmental Cognitive Psychology Masters program. In 2015, I graduated from Bucknell University with a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience, and a minor in Geography. I have always loved working with children and adolescents! I have a job as an elementary school aide and substitute teacher at a local, private elementary school. I also have experience tutoring elementary, high school, and college students. Most recently, I've taught an upper-level psychology writing course. Most importantly, my passion is working with students and families to help them reach their goals!

If you're curious about my teaching style, I want you to know that I believe in the powers of positive feedback, encouragement, and happy outlooks! I believe that everyone has what it takes to master any subject they set their mind to. Further, I think that practice makes perfect. I work with students to identify their strengths and weaknesses, and then to build on the skills you're strong at to help resolve your weaknesses. By working through many practice problems and practice tests, students can overcome their weaknesses to become strong test strategists and problem solvers. Further, a positive attitude will help us to achieve all of your goals faster!

If this all sounds good to you, then we may be a great match! I look forward to meeting you!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is to encourage students to have positive attitudes and a hard work ethic. Practice makes perfect; by working through many problems and discussing both strategy and solution for each problem, I believe any student can become an expert in a specific subject!

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I would love to get to know the student: better understand your personality, your work flow, and just what works best for you in general. Then, I want to know what you think your strengths and weaknesses are, what you want to achieve through tutoring, and what you think will be your toughest challenge. Then I would ask you to solve a few example problems, some you think will be easy and some that may be more challenging. From here, I would have a better idea of your true strengths and weaknesses and what types of problems we should tackle together next time!

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

In the beginning we will start by doing a lot of activities and problems together. As our sessions go on, you will slowly start to take more initiative in solving the problems. It will be subtle, so you may not even realize it is happening. By the end, you'll be able to talk yourself through challenging problems, identify good problem solving strategies, and even solve problems you're unfamiliar with!

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Staying motivated is super important, especially if the subject is challenging to the student! To keep students motivated I try and make all of my sessions really fun and exciting! We will have games and challenges that keep you engaged and encouraged in solving the problems. Further, I will adapt my strategy to fit your needs! If little games don't help you, then we won't do them! I'm also open to suggestions!

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I would try and cover the material in many different ways. I would pull strategies from multiple resources. Further, I would try and find many ways to present the information: figures, equations, story problems, real-life examples, or anything else that may be applicable to that situation! If the student is really stuck, and I'm having trouble thinking of new ways, then I'm not afraid to reach out to other tutors for ideas and suggestions! No matter what, I believe we could reach a solution and help you learn that concept!

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

Reading comprehension is a really tricky skill that only gets easier with practice. I have multiple strategies for helping students determine definitions of unknown or confusing words, understand complex sentences, or understand multiple paragraphs in one paper. It's important to tackle reading comprehension from all levels: understanding individual words, sentences, paragraphs, and the overall theme of a paper. We would work on each of these separately so that you will feel confident by the end of our sessions!

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

I love to have students solve problems and explain concepts back to me. This helps me to know that you'll be able to do the problem on your own later. If it's a concept, I may have the student design a question that would test the concept for another student. This helps the student to think about all aspects of the concept. Further, as the student thinks out loud to design their problem, it will allow me to see their whole thought process and know if they're struggling with certain aspects.

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?

Again, practice makes perfect! If you want to be confident in a subject, you need to be familiar with that subject. The more practice you have working through problems, talking about concepts, designing examples, and explaining solutions, the more comfortable you will be with the overall subject!
