An Environmental Science graduate from Willamette University, I love learning and working with students. I've organized and taught hands-on science curricula to talented and gifted middle school students, I have tutored elementary-age kids in the Salem school district, and I have experience volunteering in Jericho and Underhill elementary schools as a classroom assistant, as well as working with the Jericho Town Library on summer literacy programs. Most recently, I worked as a university language liaison, connecting international students, domestic students and professors. As a result, I am comfortable working across a wide age range, from elementary-age to early college-age students. I love working with kids to open new doors to learning, whether it be in language, reading, social sciences or the natural world. I am a college student with a strong understanding of responsibility. I love to volunteer, hike, cook, travel, and dance with friends.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADD/ADHD

I've worked with students with learning differences in the classroom, at summer camps, and in one-on-one tutoring situations. I have the most experience working with students of this type between elementary and middle school ages. I understand that it can take more effort to work to fit this type of learner, and I understand that challenge!

General Computer

I am experienced with both PC and Mac computers. I work with them both on a regular basis, and would be happy to work with you on yours!

Reading

I love reading, and have extensive experience working with students of different ages on this subject. I've spearheaded literacy programs with the Jericho Town Library, and also volunteer with elementary school students with reading in the classroom. I've worked with early and late-age readers, and I understand that kids come to reading at their own rates. For older students, such as high-schoolers, I can offer assistance at becoming a faster and more proficient reader. For beginning readers, I can provide the enthusiasm and patience necessary to master this important skill. I've worked with kids of different abilities, including those on the Autism spectrum, so I am experienced with different learning styles.
