My teaching style focuses on being a facilitator, mentor, coach, and guide to stimulate an interactive learning environment. For a successful learning experience, the learner needs to be an active participant with the teacher providing instruction, guidance, and support. I strive to promote a positive learning experience, build rapport, stimulate learner enthusiasm, and achieve academic goals. This approach has shown to be effective in increasing confidence, motivation, and independence. I have experience tutoring elementary through graduate school students in a variety of different subjects. I believe that it is important to customize the learning experience by adapting my teaching style to accommodate the students learning style to maximize effectiveness. I have a BS in Psychology from Arizona State University and will be defending my thesis this fall to complete my MS in Psychology degree from ASU. My academic and teaching experience focuses on the natural, social, and health sciences along with statistics and essay writing including graduate level research papers. I have presented numerous research papers at national psychology conventions and received a graduate research award for my thesis research. My favorite subjects to teach high school and undergraduate/graduate students are psychology, statistics, research methods, biology, nutrition, and essay writing. I have taken three graduate level statistics courses and I am proficient in a variety of statistical software programs such as SPSS and structural equation modeling programs (AMOS and EQS). Also, I have a strong skill level in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. I enjoy teaching elementary school students in reading comprehension, writing, math, and the sciences. I believe that this is the time to develop a strong foundation for future learning which will help sustain a high level of confidence, build self-esteem, and autonomy. I work to show this age group that learning can be fun by using a variety of different activities and resources so they leave each tutoring session with a sense of accomplishment. I would appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the academic development of students that needs my assistance. I have a passion for learning and teaching but my other activities include reading, hiking, playing tennis, and watching sports.
