My name is Siddhi (Sidd). I am attending University of Hartford's doctoral program in Clinical Psychology (Child and Adolescent Track) and pursuing a career as a Clinical Psychologist. I received my BA from Rutgers University in 2009 with honors in Psychology and minors in Sociology and English and I received my master's in Clinical Psychology from the University of Hartford in 2011. I will complete my doctorate in Clinical Psychology by July 2014. I am in my 5th and last internship year and most of my training has focused on children and adolescents. My varied experiences have allowed me to work with children & adolescents with various speech, language, and learning difficulties as well as behavioral and developmental problems. I am very experienced in working with children/adolescents with related difficulties and other mental health concerns (ADHD, Asperger's, Dyslexia, MR). Every child is different in terms of their strengths and weaknesses. My approach is to first assess a child's difficulties to best understand their struggle. I incorporate this information along with their strengths into an individualized learning plan that addresses their needs. I often use reinforcement plans/charts to encourage children to work toward their best potential and I love using fun and creative games to engage students in a fun and creative way. Prior to graduate school, I also had over six years of tutoring experience working with different age groups on various subjects including reading, writing, spelling, grammar, science, and algebra.
I am completing my final internship in Westchester County and living in Manhattan for the past few months. I am able to travel to neighboring boroughs. I am available most evenings/nights on weekdays and all day on weekends. I love working with children and truly believe that a child can greatly benefit from an individualized learning environment to work on areas that may be difficult for him/her. Additionally, I have also worked with students who wished to advance their skills and wanted support in learning new skills. I am committed to providing your child/adolescent with the best tutoring to help him or her on their academics. Please let me know if you have any questions.
