I am a professional social worker who enjoys helping individuals of all ages. I have a great deal of experience with individuals on the Autism spectrum, both personally and professionally, and am able to develop custom plans for helping these individuals succeed. M goals are to teach skills to students so that they will eventually be able to succeed without my assistance. Teaching basic skill building and independence is an important aspect of tutoring to me. I understand that everyone learns differently and am able to adapt my teaching style to individual learning styles to ensure the highest possible level of accomplishment. I offer online and in person tutoring, depending on the subject and needs of the individual.

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.
I interned as a therapist this year and worked with many individuals with ADD/ADHD. I am familiar with how to help them succeed. I have also been a case manager for several years and have worked with families with individuals with this diagnosis so I have familiarity with how to help the parents provide consistency and structure as well.
I will be receiving my MSW in 18 days and have been working in the Disabilities Office creating a program for college students on the Autism spectrum all semester. I have a little brother on the spectrum and was a TSS for a 6 year old on the spectrum as well. I have also attended the National Autism Conference in Penn State the past 2 years.
As a caseworker for many years, I have worked with both adults and children with varying special needs. I am able to accommodate these various needs by changing my method toward one that will work better for them.
Part of my development of the program for Autism at Kutztown was researching various study skills for students and how to help them be successful. I am aware of several different methods and can adapt my style to at student's style; or, help them develop a style if they do not yet have one. Each person learns differently and the tutor must adapt to that. I have resources to reference and many different ways to try.
