Greetings parents/guardians and students! Bienvenidos a los padres y estudiantes! Yo puedo discutir los servicios contigo en espanol, si necesita.
My name is Quintina and I enjoy helping people overcome obstacles to become their best selves. I understand that school can be tough at times, and my goal is to find customized, creative ways to help you/your student(s) understand and retain the information that you/they need to learn.
I earned my B.A. in International Studies from Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland in 2005. During my undergraduate years, I had the opportunity to study abroad in South America and Northwestern Africa for three semesters, and the cultural experience amplified my understanding of my studies. I earned my M.A. in Expressive Therapies with a specialization in Mental Health Counseling from Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2010. I have extensive academic writing experience, including undergrad and graduate theses. I have indulged my love of creative writing since childhood and in 2012, my first book of poetry was published.
I have interned and worked in the therapy field with children from ages 4 through 19 as well as their families over the last 5 years, and I understand the variety of forces that can impact students' success in school. In light of this, I would like to particularly reach out to students and parents that have academically struggling students who are also battling ADD/ADHD, anxiety, low self-esteem, and/or major life stress, and offer you the opportunity to have a one-on-one empowering tutoring experience. I believe that everyone has the ability to learn; we simply must find a strategy that engages the way in which a student's mind absorbs and conceptualizes information best and at their level. I look forward to helping you or your child start your journey to making your academic challenge your triumph.
