About Maggie


Bio

My tutoring philosophy is, "I don't shame, blame, or judge." That's because we need to feel safe in order to learn anything, so I can help you no matter what your grade is, how far behind you are, or why you need help. I can even help you cram, if you have a test tomorrow. :)

I have been a private and professional tutor for 10 years. I have taught kids age 5-13 who had ADHD, ASD, and behavior difficulties, and tutored middle schoolers, high schoolers, college students and graduate...

I have been a private and professional tutor for 10 years. I have taught kids age 5-13 who had ADHD, ASD, and behavior difficulties, and tutored middle schoolers, high schoolers, college students and graduate students. I love making any subject interesting for a student, and giving them hope that they can get the grades they are capable of getting.

I worked as the Psychology Tutor at Harper College in Palatine, IL for five years. I hold a Masters degree in social work (MSW) and I passed the licensure exam, which means I am also a Licensed Social Worker (LSW.) I work in private practice in West Dundee, and I am working towards becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW.)

My Bachelors degree is in Theater Performance, so I can teach you lots of actor's tricks to help you feel confident giving a speech. I also specialize in Anxiety Management, so I can help you alleviate anxiety and soothe your nerves.

I have a professional understanding of Learning Disorders, ADHD, ASD and Anxiety Disorders, so I understand how symptoms can impact a student's ability to get the grades they are capable of. My greatest strength is patience, which has enabled me to successfully tutor students with many different diagnoses and challenges.

If you are frantic, distracted, or anxious, I'm the tutor for you! You are welcome to talk about your feelings about your class, frustration at your teacher/professor, boredom with the subject matter, inability to concentrate when you're reading, fear that you will never understand the material, and sadness or anger about your assignments and grades. That way, we can identify the things that discourage you from learning and make a plan to tackle them.

Patient and very understanding.

Maggie is good, she helped me with Grammar, and made sure sentence structure was in place. She is helpful in narrowing down the paper, and helping you remove the fluff.

Tessa, 3 lessons with Maggie

Maggie is extremely helpful, friendly, and genuinely cares about her students! :)

Maggie is the best!!! Maggie's teaching philosophy is beautiful. I always have a lot of anxiety around school and I walk away from my sessions with Maggie feeling calmer and more confident. She just has such a warm and caring energy that makes you feel comforted. Maggie is also very thorough with her help. She guided me every step of the way through my research project - what makes a good research question, writing a literature review, APA formatting and so forth. I highly recommend her if you are taking any type of qualitative research methodology course for social work :)

Maggie was amazing!

She was so patient and walked me through every step. Maggie never made me feel insecure about not knowing the answer, or how to do something. Working on my document with her really put me at ease!

Knowledgeable & Experienced Tutor!

I am preparing for my licensing exam, and needed a refresher on some theories. Maggie took her time to review and explain them in a much easier way for me to understand. Thank you. 😊 Will be scheduling again soon!
