Bio

My love to learn about the world around me and meet new people, led me to pursue science as a career at an early age. I was blessed with the best teachers and professors throughout my academic years and put in practice their patience and dedication to help every one of my students succeed.

My love to learn about the world around me and meet new people, led me to pursue science as a career at an early age. I was blessed with the best teachers and professors throughout my academic years and put in practice their patience and dedication to help every one of my students succeed.

Throughout my life, I have always tutored others across various math and science subjects. While working as a research scientist, I became inspired to become a science teacher as I saw the need for competent, caring, and dedicated science educators. Many of the students I worked with were frustrated by the minimal one-on-one interactions they had with their teachers, and a desire for more time to practice what they have learned in class. Many students simply needed a better understanding of foundational concepts which could be easily done by using different methods.

I completed my master's in education at the University of Dayton (2012), and have taught high school Chemistry, Physical Science, Biology, and Physics. I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Cincinnati and worked as a Research Assistant in the Psychology Department during my senior year. In addition, I have an Associate of Applied Science in Chemical Engineering Technology from the University of Cincinnati and worked as Laboratory Assistant in the Organic Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Technology Department during my second year in the program.

I have been a tutor for most of my adult life; I tutored privately and also worked as a tutor while in college. I've tutored a diverse range of learners, elementary through high school, college (young adult), and adults returning to college.

I think of myself as a guide or coach, helping students acquire relevant life skills, such as, learning how to learn, developing a desire to learn, and how to develop diverse ways to think and solve problems. Learning takes time, and spending time with a tutor is an investment that leads to academic success!

I tutor ESL Learners across a diverse range of age and work experience, such as, high school and college students, and business professionals. While working at P&G, I helped co-workers improve their English language skills and increase their confidence when speaking and listening to English. One colleague I tutored was preparing for the U.S. citizenship test and another was beginning a 6-month work assignment in my department. Both students’ native language was Japanese. I recommend specific strategies, such as, watching English speaking movies on television, at the movie theater, or through a streaming service to ESL Learners. I also recommend watching English speaking news and talk shows, and reading novels written in English language. Engaging in conversations using the English language can also increase the ESL Learner's ability to write and speak fluently.

ADHD,

ADHD

Children with ADD/ADHD have a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that is more frequently displayed and severe than what is typically observed in individuals at a comparable level of development. As a general education teacher, I have taught students with ADD/ADHD in my chemistry and physical sciences course with success. I implemented environmental and curriculum modifications and strategies that created an accepting environment for my students. I taught students specific strategies to increase organizational skills and goal setting. In addition, skills to improve listening and attending skills and help in following instructions, mnemonic strategies to aid memory, self-instruction, and self-regulation, monitoring and reinforcement are some of the few strategies I utilized when teaching students with this disorder.
