In February of 2017, I completed my dissertation and successfully earned my doctoral degree in psychology! I have had a long employment history inclusive of teaching at the collegiate level, tutoring children, as well as older teens. Teaching at any level and in any capacity, such as providing training to adults within the workplace, brings me great joy while allowing me to feel as if I am completing my purpose in this world.
My doctoral program was directed towards teaching within the field of psychology, however, I have experience tutoring within a number of different subjects. When I was an undergraduate student, I provided tutoring services for an adolescent in all subjects several days per week. We successfully increased her scores from failing three of her five subjects to making A/B honor roll over the course of a semester.
In order to make a difference in a young person's life, I feel it is imperative to build a connection with the student that is professionally personal. If there is no connection between the educator and the student, the child is likely to continue to feel frustrated and perform poorly. Once a positive connection has been established, I find students work harder on the various activities, take a greater sense of pride in their work, and are more comfortable being honest about what is at the root of their academic struggles.
I have extensive educational training in psychology and the teaching thereof. Sociology, while it is a different field of study, has significant overlap with psychology and works within very similar principles, resulting in my confidence of being able to assist in both of these human science fields.
Throughout my education and professional life, I have been required to perform extensive writing and public speaking. As such, I have a plethora of experience and knowledge to provide to others for proofreading papers, ensuring research papers are effectively written, as well as in public speaking.
I worked for several years as an academic advisor at Florida State University and a mentor within the Athletic Department's Academic Support program. I continue to possess substantial understanding of the college environment's demands for its students and am able to assist others in identifying the potential barriers that could confront them in their future.
My profile information contains only a snippet of my actual background, therefore please contact me should you have specific questions that have not been covered within my bio.
In short, I am an extremely understanding, conscientious, enthusiastic, and realistic educator. I have found that even the most mundane subjects can be made into topics of interest for any student given the right motivational technique, and I hope to be able to share my love of teaching with you or your student(s) soon!
