About Emily

Hi, I'm Emily! I'm 29 years old and currently working full-time as a HeadStart teacher in Clermont County, OH. Additionally, I am working to complete my thesis, which is the last requirement I need to complete in order receive my MA degree in School Psychology (I have already completed 2 years of coursework and a school-based internship). I believe that my graduate training and past professional experiences uniquely qualify me for tutoring K-8 students in core subject areas (i.e., Reading/English & Language Arts, Writing, Math). My areas of strength include reading, phonics, grammar, and early literacy, and elementary math.

My school psychology training and background has armed me with specialized knowledge and expertise in child and adolescent development, learning theory and instructional techniques to promote successful learning, as well as academic/behavioral interventions for children who are struggling in the classroom. Through my practicum and internship experiences, I have had the opportunity to apply this knowledge and plan/implement both academic and behavioral interventions to help students in my schools succeed. Additionally, I have extensive experience with evaluating students to determine whether or not they qualify for special education services, as well as helping make instructional decisions and develop education plans for students with disabilities based on their needs. Specifically, I have experience working with students with Specific Learning Disabilities, ADHD, and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs).

Because of my professional background and school-based experience as a School Psychologist, I firmly believe that each student has unique learning needs. Thus, before I begin any tutoring instruction, I think it is necessary to conduct short, curriculum-based assessments to determine the student’s specific areas of need and corresponding evidence-based interventions/strategies. I also think it is critical to incorporate the student’s interests and any other relevant background info to increase engagement and motivation. With continuous monitoring of the student’s progress, frequent specialized instruction and, if necessary, consultation with the student’s teacher, I know I can help your child reach their full potential!

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 am currently finishing up my internship year and MA/CAS degree in school psychology. School psychology training includes 2 years of coursework that focuses on how to better the education of students with special needs, including students with ADHD. As a part of my school psychology course-work requirements, I completed classes that provided me with specialized knowledge in regard to working with this population, including child psychopathology (where I learned about different characteristics of students with ADHD, specifically school-aged children, and their educational needs); psychological, educational, and social-emotional assessment; and academic and behavioral intervention classes that focused on targeted, specialized interventions/instructional practices to the enhance the educational performance of different sub-groups of students with special needs. School psychology training also includes 2 school-based field experiences (600-hr practicum and 1200 hour internship). I completed my practicum in Pitt County, NC and served one elementary and one K-8 school. Currently, I'm finishing up my internship year in Wayne County, NC, where I serve 3 schools (2 elementary, 1 middle) and provide both direct student interventions and consultative services to teachers regarding the best instructional practices to serve different groups of students and a variety of skill levels.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Georgia, as well as 4 years of graduate coursework/internship in School Psychology. My undergraduate coursework, graduate training/coursework, and two years of experience as a School Psychologist intern have equipped me with extensive knowledge of and experience with students with special needs, including students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Additionally, in graduate school, I worked with college-age students with ASD to help them transition to the college environment and provided guidance with organization, study skills, and time-management

School psychology training includes 2 years of coursework that focuses on how to better the education of students with special needs, including students with Specific Learning Disabilities or SLD (Dyslexia=SLD in Reading). My curriculum included several courses that I believe uniquely prepared me to work with students with "Dyslexia," including child psychopathology (where I learned about diagnostic criteria for Dyslexia for children/adolescents, as well as how these common characteristics of students with Dyslexia translate to the school environment and how to meet their unique educational needs); psychological, educational, and social-emotional assessment classes (school psychologist evaluate students to determine whether or not they might have a disability -including SLD- that may qualify them for special education services); and academic and behavioral intervention classes that focused on targeted, specialized interventions/instructional practices to the enhance the educational performance of different sub-groups of students with special needs. School psychology training also includes 2 school-based field experiences (600-hr practicum and 1200 hour internship).
