I am currently an occupational therapy student pursuing a master's degree. I am very enthusiastic about working with kids, as I hope to do so in my future as an occupational therapist. During my senior year in high school, I participated in an independent study senior project, during which I spent 6 months learning from a wonderful special education teacher and her students. I strongly believe that each child has his/her own way of learning and in order to be successful, must be paired with a tutor who is willing to discover what works for them. I completed my senior project by preparing and teaching a mathematics lesson to a 3rd/4th grade special education class. This is where I developed my passion for understanding the learning style of children and working to support their learning accordingly.
From this point on, I've worked with children in a variety of settings, the most recent being a year of employment at the Child Study and Development Center at UNH. For the past two years, I've been working in a preschool classroom (5-6-year-olds). In addition, I volunteered for Seacoast Reads, an organization where volunteers are trained provide reading and writing assistance to children. During this time I visited a local school and spent time with children while helping them to improve these skills. I've taken several child development courses and hold a current CPR certification. I am confident that my previous experience and occupational therapy background makes me a great candidate for a tutor position.
Through previous experience, I've been educated on how to teach reading and writing skills, as well as how to address common issues that come up during the development of reading and writing skills.
As I have worked previously in several settings with students in elementary education classrooms, I feel my experience will ensure my success as a tutor. In addition, being an occupational therapy student, I am able to bring a different perspective and method of interacting with children to ensure their success.
Feel free to contact me with any further questions. I look forward to hearing from you with regard to a tutoring position. I am currently an occupational therapy student pursuing a master's degree.

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.
