Hi There! I'm a doctoral study in clinical psychology with some time and the desire to help people reach their goals.

I have volunteer experience tutoring math and writing subjects with elementary to high school-aged children through non-profit agencies and through my various universities.

I also taught at the college level during 2012-2013. I taught a college-readiness/study skills course to incoming college freshmen. Therefore, I have many tools and online resources to help students find their strengths and interests. For example, I can give and interpret abbreviated versions of the True Colors and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessments.

I specialize in math and English/reading.
