Bio

When I'm not talking about the amazing usefulness of psychology, or teaching pre-k through 12th grade students, I work as a freelance writer, editor, and tutor. I love helping other people reach their full potential every day.

When I'm not talking about the amazing usefulness of psychology, or teaching pre-k through 12th grade students, I work as a freelance writer, editor, and tutor. I love helping other people reach their full potential every day.

My studies include a master's degree in Educational Psychology from Ball State University; a graduate certificate in Positive Psychology from the University of Missouri-Columbia; a bachelor's degree in Psychology; and I'm a certified life coach. During graduate school, I completed 8-week courses in MBSR training through Palouse Mindfulness and the Science of Happiness offered by UC Berkeley — once as an online TA. I also teach ESL online and have 180-hour TESOL and TEFL certificates.

Currently, I teach students in three school districts as a substitute teacher. In this capacity, I've worked with children who have educational and behavioral challenges such as ADHD, ADD, ODD, test anxiety, and trouble reading. I've worked in basic skills and resource classrooms either as the lead teacher or a para-educator. The state of Nebraska issues "local substitute" certificates to professionals who hold a minimum of a bachelor's degree. My certificates have been valid since 2015.

As a freelance writer and editor, I explore the intersection of positive, neuro, and behavioral psychology. My work is available to read through several sources: PositivePsychology.com, Thrive Global, Ardent Path Journal, The Ascent, Better Humans, Publishous, The Startup, The Writing Cooperative, The Post-Grad Survival Guide, and Fine Lines Literary Journal.

I LOVE phonics! That's probably one of the most important qualifications a phonics teacher should have. Without passion for the subject, teaching falters. Besides this, I received phonics certification through my ongoing work with the VIPKid platform.

If you're ready to build better learning habits so you can achieve your goals, then we should work together! If your child is struggling to read and write, then I'm the conscientious and compassionate tutor they need.

ESL/ESOL

As a substitute teacher, I facilitate the learning experience for pre-k through 12th grade students. In this capacity, I've worked with English language learners as they navigate their new environment. Besides this, I spent 10 years working with refugees and immigrants from over 20 countries. I taught them job-acquisition skills and business English. Currently, I tutor adults and children, helping them to build their English skills and grow their confidence.

Besides this, I love reading and teaching reading, starting with the basics: phonics. Becoming a stronger reader is about learning the fundamentals and then finding material that stretches the student *just* enough. If the reading is too easy, the student gets bored. If it's too difficult, the student becomes discouraged and gives up.
