Hello Prospective Students and Parents! My name is Lorraine. I am a Master's Level Psychiatric Social Worker who has worked exclusively with children and adolescents for the past ten years. In the course of my practice, I have effectively taught numerous and diverse groups of acute-care inpatients on a wide range of topics. My patients regularly remark that they enjoy my teaching style, and that they have benefited from the lessons I have imparted. I have an overwhelmingly successful track record in establishing positive rapport with difficult patients, (mostly because I genuinely enjoy working with young personalities). I employ a very creative, easy-going, strengths-based approach in reaching my youngsters. I also interject an appropriate and necessary dose of humor to keep perspectives fresh, and the student well-engaged. I firmly believe that learning should be fun, not a new miserable experience for a student who may already be having difficulty expressing him or herself. I love the satisfaction my students display when they begin to grasp a formerly challenging topic and then apply that understanding to achieve proficiency in the area. On a personal note, I am a writer who has written and participated in local writers' groups and poetry events over the last decade. I have an artistic appreciation for the written and spoken word, and I believe that individuals have a responsibility (to themselves and others) to learn how to communicate effectively, in speech and in written compositions. I possess an orderly and friendly explanatory style and have a flair for presenting concepts in a sequential, understandable yet down-to-earth format. I would be pleased to offer my tutoring services in a dedicated, professional manner. I am now scheduling weekday sessions (afternoon and evening), with some select availability for weekend hours.

Public Speaking

I took a Public Speaking course in college, years ago. I have had the opportunity countless times to successfully employ the concepts gleaned therefrom in numerous personal and professional settings over the last two decades. I have participated extensively (and effectively) in regular and various local open mic poetry events, an endeavor which necessitates standing at a podium before a group of 30-50 listeners to verbally present original work. My presentations have drawn very favorable feedback from listeners. Also, I was employed for five years as a psychiatric social worker in an acute-care, stabilization hospital for children and adolescents. In my role there I created and facilitated group therapy sessions, 2-3x weekly, with groups of 8-10 behaviorally-challenged patients. My personal style was a classroom-type, psycho-educational model of teaching. My groups drew the praise of the Medical Director and colleagues alike, and served to keep some of our most challenging patients consistently enthused and engaged. I am very comfortable speaking before small and large groups of people. I am aware of what constitutes persuasive, articulate communication in a public realm, as well as what problems public speakers may face (technically, emotionally). I possess the knowledge and ability to effectively address and convey the basic (and more elaborate) tenets of public speaking.
