About Riley

I had an incredibly generic title so I suppose now is my chance to really sell you. I assure you that I'll include my qualifications below, I have them I promise. First, I want to ensure you that I actually am fun. I recently started my AuD/PhD at Ohio State and am looking to do some tutoring to entertain me in the cold, dark evenings to come. I absolutely love teaching and am currently studying for my PhD so that I will be able to teach at the college level. Tutoring is even more fun than general teaching, though, because it is a one-on-one experience so we can skip all of the boring things that you already know. Obviously, I can't sell you on being anything more than a little bit quirky unless you talk to me, so please message me and let's have a conversation about how my qualifications (listed below as promised) can help me help you help yourself.

Now that I've included enough cheesy one-liners to make every real English teacher on this site cringe (one of whom is my mother; sorry, mom!), please let me dazzle you. I graduated magna cum laude with honors research distinction from The Ohio State University. I finished my double major and double minor in two years with two prior years of Post-Secondary enrollment during high school. If anyone is considering taking advantage of that phenomenal opportunity, I highly recommend it. Just like I highly recommend you contract me, making for two excellent choices. Returning to my qualifications, my degree is in Neuroscience and Speech and Hearing Science with minors in Theatre and Linguistics. I'm currently pursuing an AuD/PhD at Ohio State to become a doctor of audiology who can practice and work in a hospital and a doctor of philosophy so that I can teach. My undergraduate thesis was on a chemotherapy drug which causes deafness, so I have a familiarity with biology and oncology, and my PhD dissertation will involve the study of the neurologic symptoms associated with that hearing loss and pharmacokinetics of the same compound. Apart from wanting to show off, I completed my B.A. in 2 years because I was financing my own education. To do that, I worked as the director of consulting services at a small IT firm in Worthington. This experience was wonderful as it gave me a very real-world involvement with the technology industry, particularly programming as that was my main function; business sales, and business analysis. As such, I'd love to talk with you about any of these disciplines or industries and, obviously, to help you with your studies so that you can accomplish your own goals. I look forward not only to speaking with you, but to working with you one-on-one in any of these subjects!

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.
