I taught at a well-known private school in Maryland (Glenelg Country School –GCS) for about 8 years after an over 15-year career as a cognitive experimental scientist at UMD and JHU, studying language and memory in people with disabilities. My goal was to discover ways to use computers to improve abilities. My tutoring experience includes helping a variety of students use technology to improve writing, study skills, and their content knowledge in the areas of Computer Science, Psychology, Latin, German, Biology, and Geometry. I love sharing my advanced knowledge of cognitive psychology and technology in creative ways using my experience as a classroom teacher and presenter so that everyone can improve their study and learning habits. Tutoring allows me to be specific in meeting individual needs in helping students achieve their unique goals. I enjoy encouraging students Interested in “learning how to learn,” improving their meta-cognitive skills and become better at retaining what they learn in the content areas mentioned above. Since teaching AP Psychology for the past 2 years at GCS and participating in College board approved AP workshops, my average student AP score is 4.6.
After working in experimental psychological research, I started a business to help teachers learn how to use computers and devices to improve students’ access to the curriculum. I have always had an interest in helping students with language processing as well as memory and attention and writing challenges to improve using technology, so I also began working with students and their families. I co-edited a book on the topic of technology tools for learning that has served as the text for a graduate course I taught at UMD and in other workshops for teachers, so I can be of special help for students with learning challenges or autism who need assistance in this regard.
Raised in a bilingual home, I am a fluent German speaker and spent a lot of time in Germany. While studying at Cornell, I went abroad for both undergraduate (to the Universitä
