My studies are in English Literature and Political Science, with minors in Psychology, Portuguese and Spanish. I have thus completed several semesters of upper-level coursework in English and the social sciences, and have a firm understanding of literature and language topics. I have a fair amount of experience in peer editing, and have worked as a content writer and columnist. Any issues with reading or writing are sure to be resolved with challenging, but rewarding lessons.
In my own academic pursuits I have developed a strong passion for learning while cultivating the techniques and study habits necessary for achieving success. I aspire to instill the same excitement towards learning that I have in others, and help students discover their unique passions, abilities, and interests. With years of teaching and mentoring experience, I am fully equipped to work with students of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds.
I have several months of experience as a teaching clinician at a local learning center. In my experience in this position, I have worked with students of all ages (4 yrs.- adult), and of all learning abilities to strengthen language perception and reading comprehension. I have a great deal of experience working with students ranging from mild to severe on the autism spectrum, as well as students with auditory processing disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder. I fully appreciate every child's unique learning style, and constantly work to ensure that each of my students receives the specialized instruction they need to thrive.
I look forward to hearing from you!
