Boston College (English)
Northwestern University (Master's)
I specialize in working with children with special needs between the ages of two and nine, and am a literacy specialist. I received my graduate degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Northwestern University. I hold my certificate of clinical competency (CCC-SLP) with the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association. I own and manage a small therapy company where my team and I provide speech and language therapy as well as literacy support to children with varying abilities and speech needs. I was a literacy specialist at Ravinia Reading Center in Highland Park, under the tutelage of Holly Shapiro Ph.D. CCC-SLP. Recently, my clinical fellow and I presented a poster at the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association's Healthcare and Business Institute on SLP-BCBA Collaboration for Treating Early Communication Deficits in Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I am also particularly passionate about working with children with Down syndrome, Epilepsy, and Autism, and finding creative, play-based steps to overcoming learning challenges.

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.
