Before I get started with my academic and professional strengths, I would like to let you know that I am a very passionate and empathetic teacher. The results that I achieve with my clients comes from my ability to connect with the student within session. I care deeply about the results of the work I do, and, therefore, I try as much is possible to keep and open line of conversation and discussion with the parents and older students about incentives, goals,the continued progress. I am capable of tutoring in a number of academic areas. Nonetheless, I would say that I am most proficient in the areas of reading, spelling, note taking (lecture and chapter), and of course comprehension and writing.
I received a BA in English Lit. from Sewanee: the University of the South and graduated Summa Cum Laude. I graduated in 2012, and since then have been working with a variety of students with and without learning disabilities.
In terms of specific programs that I have experience with, I have worked as a Consultant for a learning center in Deerfield, IL. During my time there, I was promoted and trained for the role of Consultant. Not only did I continue to work with students on a daily basis, but I paced each student's tasks according to their specific needs. Each week I met with each student's family, showed their progress, and discussed the next step in the program. This requires a phenomenal amount of understanding and experience within the different programs. I am saying this because I want to highlight the fact that my experience puts me in a far better position than anyone else who has simply been trained in the Visualizing and Verbalizing and Seeing Stars programs. I would be more than happy to discuss my experience with any parent at any time.
I left the learning center in order to have more time to prepare for and apply to law school. Therefore I have a very open schedule and am quite flexible. please do not hesitate to contact me for more information.
