Hello! My name is Brian and I recently graduated Cum Laude from West Virginia University with a 3.4 GPA. I have two bachelor's degrees in Psychology and Chinese with a minor in foreign literature.
I have previously worked with Mineral County Schools during their Outdoor School Program teaching small groups of students about natural sciences. I have worked with Americorps - Energy Express as an instructor preparing lesson plans for a small group of students to help improve their reading skills. I travel abroad to Jamaica and spent time teaching primary students basic math, vocabulary, and most memorably - how to tell time. I also have experience as a teaching assistant for a 150 student course at West Virginia University.
As someone who was diagnosed with a learning disability I know the difficulty that can come with dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, etc. and I also know that anyone can achieve better scores with hard work and a little help from an understanding tutor. At WVU I studied childhood development and I received training to use simple reward systems to help your child enjoy learning and increase his or her self esteem.
