University of Colorado Boulder (Speech Pathology)
I received my Bachelor's degree in Speech, Language & Hearing Sciences at the University of Colorado, Boulder. I have been working for the past 4 years as a Speech Language Pathology Assistant at an elementary school. Each year, I have about 60 students on my caseload that I am responsible for in providing speech, communication, and language therapy techniques.
I target receptive language skills, such as following directions and processing/organizing auditory information. I also target expressive language skills including writing techniques, correct articulation of speech sounds, reading and grammar. I love helping my students achieve their goals by providing effective learning tips and strategies that they can apply across educational settings.
I work on grammar, reading and writing techniques daily with the majority of my students. I use a variety of techniques including literacy and game-based methods to target these needs. Additionally, I have helped elementary-aged children with their homework outside of the schools.
I have worked in an elementary school for the past 4 years. Working as a Speech Language Pathology Assistant, I work on phonics daily. A majority of my students have difficulty saying certain speech sounds. I focus on this to help them achieve correct pronunciations.
I am passionate about helping students access the tools they need to learn the way that is best for them. Early education builds a foundation for a successful life and I would love to be a part of this educational journey. Please contact me for scheduling options.

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.
I work closely with student's on language and communication needs. One of the ways people can communicate is through written language. I work on the mechanics (pencil grip), sentence structure and sequence, spacing, correct punctuation and capitalization, size and shaping of letters via lined paper, and neat penmanship.
Being a speech language pathology assistant, I work on phonics with my students on a daily basis. I focus on phonemic awareness/auditory discrimination. I have my students identify the phonemes verbally and expressively. This carries over into their reading and writing, which I also help with.
I am qualified in grammar, phonics, reading and writing.
