I have a Master's degree in Child Development and bachelor's degree in Human Development. I am currently working as a behavioral therapist for children with autism implementing applied behavior analysis (ABA) techniques. In the past I was a lifeguard and a swim instructor, so I have been working with children for over 10 years in different settings. I love being around children and helping them learn new skills. I also have experience in discrete trial training (DTT), pivotal response training (PRT), crisis prevention intervention (CPI), first aid and CPR. During high school I used to babysit children and also did respite care for kids with special needs.

When tutoring I follow the learning strengths of the child to tailor how I teach the subject matter. I use a variety of techniques ranging from visuals aids, audio, and examples to help the child relate and understand the material. I concentrate on the deficits while taking advantage of the child's strengths to help them learn. Failure is not an option, success is key in life and I want to help each child achieve their fullest potential.
