I am a lifetime student with a BA in Psychology and a BS in Law & Justice from TCNJ, a law degree from Villanova School of Law, and a Master's in Clinical Psychology from Drexel University who is enrolled in the Psy.D. Program at Kean University completing a doctorate in a combined School and Clinical Psychology Program.
I have more than 20 years experience in tutoring a variety of subjects and in the last 10 years have tutored primarily in areas related to law, psychology (including research methods and statistics), study skills, and SAT verbal preparation. I worked for a period of more than 2 years for a nationally known test prep program tutoring SAT verbal programs. I am a NJ Certified Substitute Teacher who has experience teaching children from pre-K to graduate school. I updated my Substitute Teacher Certification in August, so I have copies of my most recent federal background check available if any parents would like to see it. I have 5 years of experience working in a special education school for children with emotional and behavioral difficulties, many of whom also have specific learning disabilities and ADHD.
My tutoring style generally involves discussions with parents and students about the students strengths and weaknesses so that a plan can be created that best fits with the student's needs while considering the student's learning style. When at all possible I like to integrate the student's interests into lessons, so that the student finds it easier to engage in the learning process, particularly for subjects they find challenging.
As I am currently enrolled full-time in graduate school my weekday schedule sometimes varies. As such, I usually only schedule tutoring appointments for Friday afternoons and evenings, Saturdays, and Sundays. From time to time I have weekday availability, but I would likely be unable to schedule recurring appointments for weekday nights between September and May.
