About Sara

Hi Everyone!

I am new to Arizona and look forward to working with you!

I currently hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and a Master of Science degree in Community Counseling and am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC). In 2013, I started my doctorate in General Psychology through Northcentral University in Prescott Valley, Arizona and anticipate my completion next year.

I am responsible, understanding, kind, and patient. I have worked hard to be where I am at and want to help others navigate through their academics. I am comfortable tutoring at the grade school level, middle school, high school and college. I have the ability to work with students who have additional barriers such as anxiety, behavioral issues, ADD/ADHD and more.

At any grade level, I believe it is important to build confidence, self-esteem, motivation, and work ethic. My goal is to not only help in the present but to also build skills that the student can utilize for the rest of their education.

I have provided afterschool tutoring for kids in elementary and middle school throughout my college years. I have also tutored my Little Sister with Big Brothers Big Sisters from 2nd grade up into high school.

I successfully passed the National Counselor Examination and the National Clinical Mental Health Counselor Examination the first time. I am happy to tutor students who are at this level of education and need assistance in preparing for these examinations.

I have successfully completed statistics at the undergraduate level, master level, and doctorate level.

I am incredibly passionate about psychology, counseling, and sociology. I have helped tutor graduate students as well as supervised their clinical skills.

My doctorate program has taught me to analyze material critically, engage in scientific writing, and to focus on the mechanics of writing.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am currently charging $50 per hour. Please contact me with details.

Hope to hear from you soon!
Sara

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 5 years of clinical experience in working with kids with ADD and ADHD. As a clinical professional counselor I have had to create specific treatment plans in order to cater to children who have these symptoms. I have learned how to work with kids in order to have productive sessions and utilizing my own individual strengths. In tutoring it would be important for me to be patient, understanding, and engaging throughout our time together.

College Counseling

I received my master's degree in Community Counseling in 2011. I have worked in clinical practice for 5 years, counseling children, teens, and adults. I am a licensed clinical professional counselor in the state of Kansas and am completing licensure in the state of Arizona. I have assisted graduate students in their coursework as well as their clinical work.

Reading

I also agree that it is important to increase confidence in academics at an early age. I believe I provide the skillset and experience in helping your grandson navigate through his academics.

Sociology

I received my bachelor's degree in Sociology in 2008. I successfully completed all of the coursework as well as the internship portion of the degree. I completed all classes with A's and B's. I continue to read literature in this discipline as it is forever changing.

Study Skills

In my 5 years in clinical practice, I worked as a therapist/case manager with kids and families. Many times the children would be struggling academically. My goal was to work with the schools and to create an individualized plan to help the children be successful in their academics. Many times, when parents would be unavailable I would work with the child individually to work on building their academic skills. Including, time management, stress management, study tips, study guides, and more.
I have also taught at the college level a course called Freshman Seminar. Much of the coursework was centered around study skills and how to be successful during their first year in college.
