Hi! I am an experienced tutor, with a focus in working with kids who have difficulties with reading, writing and language arts. I am also certified as a tutor through the Palm Beach County School Board. My approach with your child will be to help him/her learn by understanding and developing skills that will focus on his or her individual strengths. My background is in clinical mental health and I am currently completing an internship at the Delray Center for Healing, as a therapist for children as young as 11. I graduated from Florida Atlantic University Cum Laude in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I am finishing my Masters in Education, and have maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout graduate school. I have been a tutor in the Boca Raton/Delray Beach area for several years, and currently work with students between the ages of 5 and 24, from both public and private schools.
I grew up in Boca Raton, Florida and my husband and I recently celebrated our two year wedding anniversary. My husband is a personal chef for families in the area and I have spent the last 10 years learning how to cook. I have used the skills that I have acquired to create healthy meals in our home and teach others to do the same. Additionally, I am a very active individual and enjoy sports very much. I love the beach and spend a great deal of time in the ocean. It is important to me to stay healthy and to teach the children that I influence to eat well and stay active. There is a tremendously important relationship between the health of the body and functioning of the mind, and I help the children I work with begin making this connection in their own lives.
I have worked with kids for as long as I can remember and have the ability to relate well to them and explore ways to make learning fun. I structure tutoring sessions in a way that will build self-esteem and highlight your child's strengths. I believe that kids learn best when they are excited about the process and decide that THEY can create their own success. My goal is to teach kids the skills to be able to ultimately work independently with confidence.
