Hello, I am Risa. I am currently have my Master's of Arts in Counseling and Organizational Psychology at Adler School of Professional Psychology. I have decided to tutor in order to keep myself actively involved in education while committing my time to my own studies. I received my B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Sociology at the University of Illinois at Chicago where I graduated from.

Professionally, I have 9 years of experience in psychology, writing, reading, vocabulary and English.

My personal philosophy on education is that each student is accountable for his or her success. The teacher or tutor will act as a guide who can help the student discover new tools and talents for success and can teach them how to use those tools at the same time. Ultimately, in the end the student is the primary agent for his or her success.
