About Heather

I am a private practicing psychologist and dog trainer. I have 2 Master's degrees; 1 in Counseling Psychology and 1 in Spiritual Growth and development. I am currently pursuing my PhD in Clinical Social Work with an emphasis in Crisis and Disaster Management. I am at the dissertation phase, which means that I am ABD (all but dissertation). My current research focuses on using service dogs for individuals who have emotional and mental health disabilities.
As far as my work history, I have worked in a variety of settings, including, middle and high schools, schools for individuals with physical and emotional disabilities, Universities, and psychiatric and regular hospitals. In all of those positions, I have needed to educate others on a variety of subjects, from health issues, to help with school work, to learning communication skills. I have taught introductory classes for homeschooling groups, including: ASL, basic math, reading, history, general science, religion and statistics.

As an educator, I use the students strengths in order to help them succeed in their classes. When working with students who have emotional disabilities, I utilize therapeutic techniques that will allow them to work through their current task, as well as, utilize the techniques in other areas of life.

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 have a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology and a Doctorate in Social Work. I have worked with children and adults with ADD/ADHD for over 10 years. My style of tutoring with individuals with this disorder is to make studying interactive and mobile. This can include tossing a ball back and forth for multiplication tables, walking and verbally creating stories.

American History

I love history and frequently read historical textbooks, books and reference books for fun. I feel that I'd be able to help you out with your project, as I have a good working knowledge of American history.

Anatomy

Was biology / premed in undergrad. Have successfully completed Master's level classes in anatomy and physiology.

Aspergers

I have a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology and a Doctorate in Social Work. I have worked with children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders for over 10 years. When working with individuals on the ASD, the main thing is to establish rapport and then, you can move forward in completing the necessary tasks. I have found that many individuals with ASD tend to need an educational situation that offers interactive and mobile learning styles.

Biology

I have an undergraduate degree in biology/premed. I have extensive knowledge at the undergraduate and graduate levels regarding biology, as one of my graduate degrees, counseling psychology, did require a great deal of understanding the functionality of the body (as it relates to medications, emotions, exercise, etc).

English

I have a PhD and 2 master's degrees. I minored in English in undergrad. I have written both personally and professionally for publication.

Physical Science

I was a bio/pre-med major in undergrad.

Proofreading

I have an undergraduate minor in English. Have worked extensively with others in regards to creating appropriate documentation that follows APA guidelines, while also following English grammar and rules. I have aided others throughout my academic career, as well as, throughout my professional career in writing, everything from emails to grant writing to extensive research papers.

Psychology

I have a masters degree in counseling psychology and a PhD in clinical social work. I have worked extensively in the field, having 15+ years of experience.

Reading

I have a PhD and 2 master's degrees. I have worked with children and adults in ensuring that the foundations of reading ( phonics, site words ) are solid. By having the foundational reading blocks solid, it helps students to have an increase in confidence and ability.

Sign Language

I was born deaf and utilized ASL as my primary language until I was in my late teen years. When I was a child, I was enrolled in and attended a school for the deaf where the focus was on communicating through ASL. Since then, I have worked as an interpreter for the deaf and hard of hearing in various settings, from medical appointments, to legal settings to church.

I taught 3 classes for ASL in the past, beginner, intermediate and advanced. In the beginner class, students were taught sentence structure, basic words and basic communication skills. In the intermediate class, students were introduced to more in depth communication through ASL and communicating with facial expressions. Participants in this class are encouraged to focus on using ASL to communicate instead of their voice. In the advanced class, participants were to only communicate through ASL. At this level, students would be invited to attend an all deaf/hoh event where their only means of communicating was through ASL.

Special Needs

Possesses Master's degree in Counseling Psychology and currently ABD with PhD in Clinical Social Work. Have worked in the mental health field for 12 years working with a variety of individuals ranging from children to older adults.

When working with individuals with special needs, I tend to use a variety of techniques including, using tactile, kinestitic, and physical ways of learning. This could include, using blocks to teach mathematics, singing states in order to remember them, using a ball that bounces for addition problems, etc. Each child is different and therefore needs to be assessed to determine which ways are going to work out best for that individual.

Writing

I hold a PhD and 2 master's degrees. I double majored in undergrad-bio/premed and English. I have completed many graduate courses in writing and have received great feedback, successfully completing all courses with A's. I continue to write professionally; books, emails, and trainings.
