I am private academic tutor dedicated to helping students with special needs. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Education & Behavioral Social Science with a Master’s degree in Social Work. I love providing students with the skills to be successful both academically and in “real life.” Often, achievement in school (and life!) is about preparation and implementation. Many children struggle with school not because they lack intelligence, but have not yet learned or mastered the skills needed to drive their academic success.
I utilize each session not only to provide individualized services, but earn (and give!) respect through modeling a healthy rapport and being invested in each child I work with.
My special needs experience consists of a year of graduate placement at an alternative school working with varying exceptionalities K-12 and two years as a senior mental health practitioner at an inpatient psychiatric hospital for children providing crisis intervention to a vast range of children with mental health diagnoses. I have two years providing community-based individual and family psychotherapy for a range of children with mental health diagnoses and children experiencing life adjustments and two years as a private academic tutor for a student diagnosed with ADHD.
All questions are welcomed. Please feel free to contact me at any time. I am flexible with my services, as they are individualized to fit the needs of the children I work with. I look forward to hearing from you! I am private academic tutor dedicated to helping students with special needs.

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.
Most recently, I dedicated two years providing academic guidance and tutoring three times a week to a high school student (Junior/Senior year) diagnosed with ADHD. As with the nature of ADHD, our agenda focused mainly on building/implementing time management and organization skills. In addition to addressing components of ADHD, I tutored all academic subjects, including helping with projects, studying for exams, writing essays, and the college admissions process.
As a mental health practitioner over the past six years, I have worked with numerous children diagnosed with ADHD from three years of age, and at all levels of ADHD.
Two years at the inpatient level, I provided crisis intervention and therapy to children (and families) experiencing severe symptoms of ADHD including hyperactivity, low frustration tolerance, impulsivity, and poor concentration. Interventions aimed to educate children, reduce symptoms through skill-building, and rebuild positive reflections of self. Many children at the impatient level utilized prescription mediation to aid in managing symptoms which I also provided education on and implemented into the intervention process.
As an outpatient and community-based therapist for two years, I provided ongoing psychotherapy to multiple children diagnosed with ADHD and addressed mild to moderate symptoms. Sessions on this level focused on daily organization, time management, addressing negative behaviors (implanting reinforcers, creating behavior charts, etc.) teaching listening skills, and providing ongoing encouragement through strengths-based therapy.
