Hello, my name is Lia. I am a Licensed Social Worker who works for the Texas Department of State Health Services, specifically with children with special needs. I graduated high school in 3 years instead of 4, finishing with 12 hours of college credit and 31st in a class of 500 plus students. Then I attend the University of Texas at Austin for 2 years lastly finishing my Bachelor's of Social Work at the University of Texas at Arlington. I am very patient and understanding. I have a passion for helping, but not enabling.
I am new to the tutoring realm but am very interested and excited to help children. Normally when I work I use the Strengths Perspective Theory that helps to get a baseline of the child and/or family and continues to build on the positive attributes, but allows recognition then growth in the areas of opportunity. I am bilingual with my second language being Spanish. I do not mind working with any age child and I do not have any experiencing assisting adults.
