Study Skills

I have helped two high school student sophomores get organized and showed them both how flash cards can be a great study tool. I have experience being a Teaching Assistant for a laboratory from Westminster College. During this- I walked students through the pre-lab questions, helped them carry out the experiments, and then went over the post-lab questions with them after lab hours. Also- while at The Ohio State University- I helped college junior and senior students with their homework/study skills during their breaks.

College Counseling,

College Counseling

I worked in the Admissions office at Westminster College for 3 years and learned a lot about counseling. Our counselors would go over with students the struggles of everyday college life and how to handle stressful situations. I also got to help students get acclimated to student grounds and was there to answer any additonal questions/concerns they had regarding their first few months starting college.

Genetics

As a Biochemistry major, I took a semester of Genetics at Westminster College. I also tutored a high school Genetics student last year for the entire school year. She ended up with an "A" in the class and said that our tutoring lessons were very helpful. As it was part of my degree- I feel like I can tutor all students in Genetics and help them succeed.

I took one year of Pharmacology classes at The Ohio State University. These classes were done along with a rotation of laboratory experiments, in which I oversaw undergraduate Pharmacology students and was there to answer any questions they had.

ADHD,

ADHD

While at one school district, I worked with a student who had ADHD. I read tests out loud to him and helped him with his homework one-on-one after taking him out of his class. I learned that he just needed someone to keep him on task and focused and was an excellent student. When I worked at another district- I had a student who had ADHD in my class as part of inclusion. I learned that this student was able to focus on more visualizations and class activities. I used more visuals during class and also made sure we always had an activity planned for the day to use some of his energy. It worked fabulously.
Special Needs,

Special Needs

I taught a class of 5th graders in which was an "inclusion" class for three special ed children. I worked with one of the children in 1:1 sessions three times a week in order to give him the special attention he needed in his classes. We went over assignments together, and I helped him understand the questions hhe was being asked on his homework.
