My studies are in English Literature and Political Science, with minors in Psychology, Portuguese and Spanish. I have thus completed several semesters of upper-level coursework in English and the social sciences, and have a firm understanding of literature and language topics. I have a fair amount of experience in peer editing, and have worked as a content writer and columnist. Any issues with reading or writing are sure to be resolved with challenging, but rewarding lessons.

In my own academic pursuits I have developed a strong passion for learning while cultivating the techniques and study habits necessary for achieving success. I aspire to instill the same excitement towards learning that I have in others, and help students discover their unique passions, abilities, and interests. With years of teaching and mentoring experience, I am fully equipped to work with students of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds.

I have several months of experience as a teaching clinician at a local gold seal accredited learning center. In my experience in this position, I have worked with students of all ages (4 yrs.- adult), and of all learning abilities to strengthen language perception and reading comprehension. I have a great deal of experience working with students ranging from mild to severe on the autism spectrum, as well as students with auditory processing disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder. I fully appreciate every child's unique learning style, and constantly work to ensure that each of my students receives the specialized instruction they need to thrive.

I look forward to hearing from you!!

Elementary Education

Elementary (K-6th),

Elementary (K-6th)

I have several months of teaching experience working as a clinician at a local learning center. The majority of my students were elementary-aged (grades Pre-K-6). In addition to providing specialized instruction to improve literacy and fluency, I provided academic support to improve students' performance and continued success with school work. Regardless of whether I was intervening to bring students up to grade level, or giving a boost to set them ahead of the curve, I always involved level-appropriate material and provided my students with strategies for application in the classroom.

Handwriting

While working as a clinician at a local learning center, I taught Pre-K instruction to many students of various learning abilities. With these younger students, I implemented a variety of engaging activities-- several of which were focused on teaching the alphabet and improving handwriting skills.
Phonics,

Phonics

I have several months of teaching experience working as a clinician at a local learning center. In this role, I provided specialized instruction to improve literacy and fluency by applying a dual-process model of sensory cognition to improve symbol imagery (word attack and phonological processing), concept imagery (word recognition), and contextual reading, along with overall comprehension. I have studied native and secondary language acquisition in a number of contexts, each of these focusing largely on implementing phonological concepts alongside other necessary components to improve reading ability.
