Bio

As a former International Teacher, a current Admissions Advisor, and a tutor for over a decade, I have had the pleasure of working with many different students, each with their own unique style of learning and communicating. My specialties are: College Prep/Advising, SAT, TOEFL, Math (levels up to and including Pre-Calculus), ESL, Reading, English, Language Arts, and all Elementary subjects (including but not limited to: Science, History, and Social Studies).

As a former International Teacher, a current Admissions Advisor, and a tutor for over a decade, I have had the pleasure of working with many different students, each with their own unique style of learning and communicating. My specialties are: College Prep/Advising, SAT, TOEFL, Math (levels up to and including Pre-Calculus), ESL, Reading, English, Language Arts, and all Elementary subjects (including but not limited to: Science, History, and Social Studies). Because I have a special relationship with students who are on the spectrum, several of the students I tutor have had Asperger's, Autism, or ADD/ADHD. In addition, I was the primary caretaker for an autistic child for a year.

On average, my students have increased their SAT Math scores by 120 points.

I lived and worked in China for about four years, so I also have general knowledge related to the language in speaking and pinyin.

My work with behavioral and special needs students began at a young age, and I have continuously kept track of progress in research and understanding of students with special needs. In addition, I feel my experiences working with special needs students has taught me how to understand and appropriately foster to my students' needs.

Contact me with any questions about my skill levels, availability, and to schedule a lesson (or two).

Handwriting,

Handwriting

While I was a teacher, my school incorporated "Handwriting" as a portion of our curriculum b/c we were in an International School in China. Therefore, I had to learn appropriate techniques (with the help of school provided coursebooks) to help my students learn how to write neatly. In addition, I have tutored students in reading, writing, and ELA, which in some cases, led to me assisting them with handwriting because several of my younger students (K-2) really needed help with it, esp those with motor dysfunctions/delays. As a former International Teacher, a current College Counselor, and a tutor for the past decade, I have had the pleasure of working with many different students, each with their own unique style of learning
Phonics,

Phonics

While in China for four years, I spent several of those years tutoring students in phonics. I worked in large groups and in one-on-one tutoring sessions. The students I worked with one-on-one continued to work with me until I returned to America because of our success. My focus was to improve sight and sound recognition, which enabled my student's spelling, speaking, and reading abilities to improve. In addition, I have done extensive research to find what phonics books work best for all levels of students; therefore, I am able to recommend appropriate study materials. (All Elementary aged students).

Social Studies

Besides holding a major in Sociology from Wake Forest University, I also minored in Psychology and Women's & Gender Studies.

I majored in Sociology at Wake Forest University. I graduated on the Dean's List and worked with a professor on editing the 2nd Ed of his book.
