Hello, and welcome to my tutor page! I am a well educated, energetic, creative and caring tutor ready to work with your child! My undergraduate work in Brain and Cognitive Science cultivated in me a passion for working with growing minds, especially those who process differently. Additional coursework at National Louis University in Special Education has provided me a solid foundation on common accommodations and modifications for individualizing education, which I can use to develop a very specific and effective tutoring style to fit your child's needs. I was a member of Chicago Teaching Fellows, a prestigious organization through which I acquired my Provisional Alternative Special Teaching Certificate (Type 27), and I taught fourth-grade special education in Chicago for one year. As a teacher, I learned how important it is to think outside the box when preparing lessons, and I also learned a great deal about elementary curriculum. In addition, I have learned how important it is to provide a warm, supportive environment for students and to be patient throughout the learning process for the most growth to occur!
I also am experienced in the realm of music and would love to teach your child piano, general music, or tutor college students in their music theory or sightsinging coursework. I began piano lessons at the age of five and have always had a strong passion for music. In addition, I was also a music major in college and received high marks in all of my music theory, ear training, and history coursework. I taught Music and Drama at Ramapo for Children, a summer program for children with special needs, including autism, so I have learned how to make music a fun experience for all!
I would love nothing more than to share my passion for education with you, so please contact me!
