I have a B.A. in Speech and Communications and a Masters Degree in Speech and Language. I especially love working with special needs children with learning disabilities and language deficits. I have experience in assessment and therapy for Articulation, Language, Autism, and Dyslexia for children and adults. During my tenure with the Palm Beach School District I was able to assist many middle school students with special needs to complete their IEP goals and be mainstreamed to regular classes.
My philosophy for working with young children is that learning strategies are most effective when they are interactive and fun. I have been trained to use auditory, visual, tactile/kinesthetic strategies as well as adult learning concepts.
Prior to becoming a tutor with WyzAnt, I have been engaged in training professionals in technical writing skills and computers, including Microsoft Word, Publisher and PowerPoint. I also tutor phonics, grammar, public speaking, reading comprehension, written expression, study skills, the HESI, NLN, TEAS, SAT, ACT, ASVAB and other eligibility examinations.
During my tenure with WyzAnt, I have been assisting students with their preparation for the Florida State Licensing Exam for Registered Nurses (NCLEX). In addition, I have especially enjoined teaching English as a Second Language to non-native English speakers. Some of my students have been native speakers of Spanish, Portuguese and Swedish.
It is a privilege to teach. I believe there is no better way to serve your fellow man than to help someone learn something that will enable them to have a better life.
