Meredith College (Psychology)
I began tutoring in elementary school by working with those younger than myself to teach them reading skills. Through all jobs I have had, this has continued to be a major component. I have tutored and taught small children with autism, children through adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, as well as typically developing children and adults.
My teaching style is that no one learns the same way ... the best way to teach someone is in the way that they learn best. I have rolled down a hill to teach a young child with autism the verb "roll", I have pulled children around on squares of carpet to teach directions and verbs, I have used a favorite cartoon to teach reading and writing skills .... it all depends on the child/adult and their preferred method. For true learning and retention to take place, the skill has to be meaningful to the person. Natural Environment Teaching has worked for my students as well as myself to ensure retention of skills.
I completed my bachelors degree at Meredith College in May 2002 and completed courses in Applied Behavior Analysis at Pennsylvania State University in 2005-2006. For the past 6-8 years, I have worked in supervisory roles and have missed the one-on-one interaction and teaching. I look forward to helping you and your loved one achieve your educational and personal goals.

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.
