Understanding, caring and highly skilled tutor with a record of success with students at all levels. Patient and effective with students who must overcome learning challenges. While social studies/history are my primary areas, I am especially good with students who have ADD and are frustrated by the mechanics of reading and writing.
I have developed skills and training for myself and others in how to provide high quality direct instruction to students who need to consider learning and physical challenges. I have specific experience with students who have ADD/ADHD and need to improve their organizational skills, focus, and completion of tasks and assignments in a timely manner. I have also coached parents and students in ways to handle various situations as they may arise in school, at home and in the community.
I provide life/career coaching, personal development, counseling and professional support to a variety of clients. Much of my work includes appropriate assessment, selection of healthy career paths and life/career balance.
I am a former elementary teacher, and I currently train teachers in best techniques and strategies for all learning needs and styles. I am highly successful in teaching students how to organize themselves for better learning outcomes.
My undergraduate major was sociology and I was one of the highest achieving students. I also have a graduate degree with a psycho/social concentration, have applied the principles in my profession, and taught or conducted trainings based upon the the theories in the field. I am particularly comfortable with adults and others who have gaps in their educational preparation and backgrounds.
I have many years of experience as a learning specialist, academic coach, teacher and teacher trainer. All of my work has involved showing students how to study and prepare for their classes, organizing material to suit their learning style and figuring out what is important to learn. My style helps students build confidence through solid skills development.
