I am an ivy league educated professional with a J.D. and work experience in higher education. I have always been passionate about education and helping other people. Additionally, I absolutely love children and am a parent myself. As such, I understand the importance of making sure your child is succeeding and learning at an age-appropriate level both for the benefit of learning and to boost confidence. I am extremely patient and organized and feel personally rewarded when I am able to help someone learn something new or understand a new concept. One of the most important ways to work toward positive results is to understand the person with whom you are working and what his/her learning style is. Everyone grasps concepts in different ways and at different rates. I modify my tutoring approach based on the individual's needs and comfort level.
I was a Psychology major in college and have been in counseling positions for the last 10 years. My approach involves spending some initial time discussing what the client's needs or concerns are in order to make sure I understand the goal. From there I discuss possible approaches, suggesting more than one to see what would work best for the client and motivate him/her the most, and then beginning the work. I try to make learning fun but am results oriented. Tutoring is a customer service position so I do modify my approach and assistance based on what the client's expectations are. I hope to have the opportunity to work with you!
For the last 6.5 years I have been working as a career development counselor. My job includes providing personalized meetings to understand the individual's concerns/goals, reviewing resumes and cover letters, preparing individuals for interviews, sharing job search and strategy resources, exploring networking ideas, etc. I have helped people: (1) figure out what type of job they are looking for given their interests and skills; (2) secure their first job; and (3) move forward with career changes and professional development. I am extremely well versed in this field.
Public speaking is a skill that I learned at a very young age. I was taught key elements to command attention and build confidence. I was then given a more formal training in public speaking in law school, which was furthered by my experience as a trial attorney. I presented many arguments in court before judges. Additionally, in my current job as a career adviser, I have moderated many panels and conducted my own seminars. I am able to teach the skills it takes to (1) feel more comfortable in front of an audience and (2) engage the audience.
