About Talena

My name is Talena, I'm a 25-year-old NYU Latin Honors Graduate. I graduated with a 3.9 GPA. First and foremost, I am a writer, but I am excellent at all standardized testing (ranking in the 99th percentile), and love to work with children or adults of any age struggling with time management, writing, and studying for tests.

As someone who suffered from ADHD myself, I know how frustrating and debilitating the condition can be to children, teenagers, and adults, and am dedicated to helping to provide skills to manage symptoms, set goals, and effectively and efficiently work towards them to completion. I have been trained at both NYU and Columbia University to work with children and adults with ADHD, as well as children with conduct disorders that may struggle to stay on task and lash out. There is no individual that would be too difficult for me to create a study plan for.

I am an exceptional writer, with published creative writings, experience writing and proofreading MLA format research papers, and have consistently scored in the 99th percentile in English and writing since childhood. I love to write, I NEED to write, and I would want nothing more than to help you or your child learn how to enjoy the process of writing, researching, storytelling, and analyzing writings.

I love working with children and excel in figuring out an individual child's most efficient way of learning.

As a psychology major at one of the top universities in the field, I have been extensively trained on ADHD management at both NYU and Columbia University.

Please contact me with any questions and to find out more how I can help you succeed and thrive in your studies.

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.

ADHD

I have received professional training at both NYU and Columbia University on how to manage children and adults' ADHD symptoms, as well as how to deal with any conduct disorder a child may be struggling with.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been tutoring kids since I was in middle school myself. I taught English, Art, and Sport at an underprivileged elementary school in Peru at only 16. I work amazingly well with kids and relate to them easily. I am also trained in management of ADHD and conduct disorder in children and adults by NYU, where I received my Bachelor's with a 3.9 GPA, and Columbia University.

English

I have been tutoring English for as long as I can remember. I even taught English summer school at an underprivileged school in Peru when I was only 16. Since elementary school, I have placed in the 99th percentile in all standardized testing for english, writing, reading comprehension, grammar, spelling, etc. I graduated from NYU with a 3.9 and a Bachelor's in Psychology.

Reading

I had the same struggles in elementary school with reading comprehension, and understand how frustrating it can be. I always loved reading, and am an avid reader, but it took a lot of help to get where I am now.

Study Skills

I have received professional training at both NYU and Columbia University on how to manage children and adults' ADHD symptoms, as well as how to deal with any conduct disorder a child may be struggling with. These skills are effective, of course, for children without official diagnoses. Study and time management skills help everyone!

Writing

I have been a writer since I was a child, and love to examine literature. I graduated from a reading/writing-heavy program at NYU with a 3.9 and never received lower than an A on any paper (analysis, research, etc.) in my undergraduate career.

I have struggled with ADD all throughout my educational career and have particularly had issues with writing papers. Talena helped me write and organize a research paper for my college English class that I had been struggling to complete. She was very informative on the topic of my paper and helped me form a detailed outline, explained concepts I didn't understand, and walked me through how I shou
