My name is LaSeaun and I am currently a graduate student studying psychology with a specialization in Applied Behavior Analysis. I have learned throughout my matriculation through school that having the right study skills is essential to success. I am well versed in public speaking and essay writing. I have competed in several competitions during my k-12 years of school. Of those competitions I have placed 3rd in the Quest Oratorical Competition in (2002), 2nd in a National Competition (2005), and 1st place in 4 out of 5 Regional Competitions for the South Atlantic Conference. I enjoy writing, especially poetry. In 2000, I had a poem published in the National Anthology for Young Poets.
I have 6 plus years of experiencing in mentoring and tutoring children and adolescents with special needs. I conducted research back in 2011-2012, specifically on children diagnosed with Down Syndrome and their ability to learn. The thesis that was composed for my Senior Year of undergrad, received excellent ratings and is now used as a resource for others when constructing their senior thesis. I understand that each child is unique and that they learn differently. I love finding new ways to approach learning. I am confident that I can help your or your child achieve academic success.
English has always been a strength for me, from my essay writings to public speaking. I understand that reading can be difficult for some people and so I have devised a strategy to assist others in the understanding of what is being read.
Flash cards, slide shows, mnemonic devices, and more! Studying is the secret to success. Anything that can be learned has a study strategy paired with it. In grad school to help me prepare for certain assignments or quizzes I create flash cards both with pictures and words. I find that visualizing the material helps.
In middle school I became a peer tutor for children with special needs. I have always had a passion for working with this population because my cousin, whom I am very close to, has Down Syndrome. As a child I used sign language to communicate with her until she was able to progress to speaking. In school I used pictures and games to help the students learn the material assigned to them.
