I currently have a Master’s Degree in Education (M.Ed.) and am employed full time as a school psychologist for a small school district. I also have undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Spanish. I have experience with students of various cultural backgrounds, ability levels, and ages (from 3 to over 18 years of age). I truly enjoy seeing students succeed and believe that all students can have success by finding the learning strategies that work best for them. My goal is to help the student find those strategies and utilize them outside of tutoring sessions. I will do as much assessment as allowable from the beginning by talking to the student’s teachers, parents, and others; doing direct assessment of my own in the targeted subject areas; and reviewing any records, scores, or work samples that are provided. The assessment will allow me to truly know which skills the student has and does not have, and I can teach in a style that is most beneficial to the student.

My daughter has learning disabilities and missed almost 4 weeks of school due to a medical situation. Rhiana has been great in both assisting our daughter with catching up on missed work and helping her keep current at the same time. She is tutoring in World History, Biology, Algebra I, and English. She is trying to help our daughter establish and stick to a schedule and we appreciate it very much. She is very patient and always arrives on time.
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.
In my current full-time job as a school psychologist, I often assist teachers and parents with their ADD/ADHD children. I understand the various symptoms and types of ADHD. Symptoms can include inability to focus (especially on things not of interest), poor executive functioning abilities (including poor organization and time management), poor working memory, excessive movement, and impulsivity. I have helped put a variety of interventions into place for ADD/ADHD students including self-monitoring plans, breaking down work into smaller chunks, allowing for frequent breaks, and behavior modification strategies that involve rewards or replacement behaviors.
