My training has allowed me to specialize in focusing with students with special needs on training them how to be students, studying for exams, coping with stress, advance their reading and writing skills. I have worked with many dyslexic students before and have reached optimum success with each of them.
What makes me qualified? Well, I was a undergraduate psychology major who focused on human services, school psychology, and urban education. Later on, I received extensive training with students who have special needs. Years ago, I was a Special Ed teacher for a middle school, where learned to fully deal with students who were having issues.

Let me help you with your English classes!
The most common errors I find during essay revisions with students is their use of grammar. Most students struggle with grammar usage all the time, but they don't necessarily understand why certain phrasing is wrong.
I can help clear up those issues and help a student do better not only with their writing, but their speaking as well.
Literature is often an are where most students struggle; how to look within a text and interpret its meaning is something that can present a challenge if you're not aware of what you're looking for.

I used to have trouble speaking in public and wanted to gain confidence in my every day conversations. It wasn't until I practiced with a tutor and took a speech class that I found my voice.
