I have a master's degree in education and a two-year degree in speech-language pathology assisting. I teach to each student's individual educational needs.

I have been working with students one-on-one and in small groups in both the private and public school sectors for more than 10 years. I have a master's degree in education and a two-year degree in speech-language pathology assisting. I teach to each student's individual educational needs. I understand that every student learns and retains information differently. Some students may take a little longer to process information and others may learn more effectively through more visual representations. If a student is not fully grasping a concept; I switch gears and try a different approach.

I have experience in teaching: writing (e.g. vocabulary building, grammar, punctuation, parts of speech, research papers), reading (e.g. comprehension), language(e.g. idioms, social skills), study skills (e.g. memory strategies, note taking, and research skills). I also utilize different approaches when teaching such as: visual (e.g. clay, graphic organizers), targeted games, & worksheets. I strive to make the learning process fun, meaningful, and engaging for the student.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I have a B.S. degree in communications which focused on public speaking. I have worked in broadcasting and as a presenter for training events. I approach teaching public speaking differently with each student since each student comes with varied degrees of experiences. I use memory strategies, preparation skills, and overall voice training to enable the student to be as successful as he or she can.

I worked at a private clinic assisting children and teens with learning disabilities, ADHD, and those with special needs having academic challenges for 8+ years. I presented various study skill techniques such as graphic organizers, the SQRW (survey, question, read, write) method, and other strategies (categorizing, rhyming, acronyms, index cards, etc). I also provided strategies for memory/recall so the student learns how to retain the information and not just hold onto it until test time.
