I hold Master's Degrees in Sociology and Counseling Psychology. I focused on Social Psychology and Social Issues in my first Master's program. I taught Sociology, Psychology, and Ethics for over a decade. I worked extensively in the mental health field and have experience in counseling, crisis intervention, and substance abuse counseling. I have extensive experience working with Severely Mentally Ill individuals and individuals dual diagnosed with mental health and substance abuse issues.

I have taught courses on Gender Studies, Race Relations, Human Sexuality, Career Counseling as well as general sociology and psychology courses.

Working as a freelance writer, I have also become adept at editing. Most issues plaguing young writers can be easily identified and corrected. Most of my editing clients quickly learn to identify areas of concern and find themselves self-correcting after a few sessions. Most high school and college writers are plagued by simple issues surrounding the over use of passive voice and misuse of subject/verb and subject/pronoun agreement.

I look forward to helping you be successful in your educational adventure.

Sincerely,
Nalda

Thanks Nalda!!!

Nalda was hugely helpful in helping me complete an essay I was working on. She was kind enough to give me edits and feedback while I was busy with other work and when I came back to finish up I found that he feedback was extremely helpful. Thanks again!!!

Great tutor, very responsive with great meeting time flexibility!

Exceptional tutor with great scope of grasping quickly the nature and learning technique of the child. Patient and sensitive with warming personality which allowed for instant level of comfort from my daughter's standpoint. Well worth the time and money invested.
