About Imani

My experience ranges from working with children who are typical in development to working with grade school students who have developmental delays.

I worked as a specialized behavior therapist for two teenagers with Autism while in college. I also worked as an assistant teacher for children with developmental delays for 4 years.

I have a bachelors of science in Psychology with a minor in English. In addition, I received specialized training in ABA therapy and was taught research strategies for Autism through Emory. I am also trained as a behavior therapist and CPR certified.

Currently, I work as a school instructor and tutor for students who are atypical in development. As a result, I am knowledgeable about common core standards and familiar with K-5 homework.

Approved subjects

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.
