About Lena

Hello! I am a college professor with over 10 years of classroom teaching experience. With over 25 years in health and behavioral healthcare quality improvement work, I can help you with topics such as reading, writing, psychology, general biology, sociology, and anthropology. I am a mom and grandmother, and have experience in counseling and developmental pediatrics. I have a background in helping students who have ADD/ADHD.

I try to make the learning experience fun while at the same time helping you retain what you are learning. I work with any age and offer tutoring in person if within 20 miles of my home. To provide a quiet and stress free environment, I offer tutoring in my office. But, I am flexible with working in any environment.

Best wishes in your success and learning journey!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADHD

I conducted testing on childen to rule out ADHD/ADD for 7 years. I have taught young adults who had ADHD/ADD, and have experience molding learning materials to meet their needs for enhanced learning. I have also worked with parents of children with ADD/ADHD to inform educators during the IEP process.

English

With a doctorate in human services and a master's degree in psychology I have written tons of papers, and I teach graduate and undergraduate classes in which I grade 20 to 60 papers a week! I use APA style formatting, referencing and citing, as most colleges use it as well. I critique papers for content and mechanics so that students will learn what academic papers should look like.

Grammar

I teach 2 to 4 classes each semester/term and grade student papers weekly for content, grammar and mechanics. I grade students with a specific rubric that requires grammar to be evaluated and graded. All papers I grade need to follow APA formatting, referencing and citing guidelines.

Psychology

I have been teaching college psychology classes for over 10 years, at graduate and undergraduate levels. I truly enjoy teaching, and particularly psychology, at any grade level! I regularly grade papers and participate in online discussions with students daily.

Sociology

I have taken courses in sociology (during undergraduate and graduate studies). I have taught community college classes that included sociology in the curriculum. I have worked with college interns in conducting qualitative research in sociology.
