About Doris

Hello,

I am a 46 year old single mom of 2 teenage boys. I have a BS in Geology and Geophysics from UCONN and am looking to do some tutoring to help students who need a little assistance, as well as to make some extra money for my own children as they are now approaching their college years. One of my sons has a learning disorder and has been in an IEP since elementary school so I am aware of the challenges that learning disabled children are faced with. My other son excels in technical skills but not so much in academic ones, and so I understand this type of person as well. We all have our own strengthens and weaknesses, but it doesn't mean we can't pass and be the best we can be in everything we do. I have worked for over 10 years in environmental consulting and engineering and for over 15 years in finance and mortgage lending. I left consulting simply because I could no longer travel for extended periods of time as a single parent as when you clean up hazardous waste sites, you have to be onsite for months at a time. I learned the finance world from the ground up and am capable of approaching learning in a variety of ways to find one that best helps the student. Not everyone learns the same way. I am also aware that sometimes, children also learn better from anyone who is simply not their own parent. Children very often do not feel as criticized by a stranger simply because they are just that, a stranger. I learned this with my own children. I will always have the utmost respect for your child, and do my best to help them attain their goals. Thank you.
