As someone who considers themselves a lifelong learner, I am passionate about learning new concepts, and I am motivated to share this attitude with my students!
I graduated from Indiana University Bloomington in 2017 with a BA in Speech-Language Pathology and a minor in Psychology, and in 2020 with an MA in Speech-Language Pathology.In the future, I plan to serve as a Speech-Language Pathologist in an urban school district with students who come from diverse ethnic backgrounds and SES.
As a student pursuing Speech-Language Pathology, I have had extensive experience in teaching individuals from ages 4 to 80 by providing speech therapy and have become an expert in tailoring my teaching style to best meet the needs of my students.
I have served as a graduate clinician in several elementary schools, where I have provided speech therapy (e.g. reading groups, targeting narrative retell, grammatical concepts, phonological awareness, core language, social skills, study skills, organization, etc.) in small group settings. Additionally, I have worked as a graduate teaching assistant in Indiana University's American Sign Language Department, where I co-taught American Sign Language with Deaf professors and provided office hours for undergraduate students. I have also worked alongside special education teachers, general education teachers, and paraprofessionals to design language-enriching curriculum in a summer camp setting for elementary school students with special needs, and served as a camp leader as well.
Subjects I tutor include Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Algebra 2, PSAT Critical Reading, PSAT Mathematics, PSAT Writing Skills, Psychology, Elementary School English, English Grammar and Syntax, Elementary School Reading, Elementary School Writing, Elementary School Science, Essay Editing, Finite Mathematics, Science, Special Education, Study Skills and Organization. I also provide preparation for SAT and GRE exams, as well as the PRAXIS Speech-Language Pathology exam.
As a tutor, my philosophy is to serve as a guide to aid students in discovering concepts for themselves. I break complicated problems into smaller, more manageable problems and always start with simpler concepts and ensure my student has mastered them before moving on to more complicated ones. I am constantly assessing how the student is understanding the lesson by asking comprehension questions and adapting my teaching style to better suit the student's needs. I also make use of technology and multimedia to maximize efficiency of my tutoring sessions and students' success.
