I am an experienced and patient tutor with high standards.
I am currently a PhD student in Geography at the University of Toronto conducting field work in Seattle - this is also the city where I grew up and that I identify with the most. I am a certified teacher with a Masters in Teaching who taught fifth grade for three years; I also ran a tutoring center for elementary and middle school kids for a year and half while I worked on my Master's degree. Currently I take clients ranging from 2nd through 12th grade. While I work with students with a wide range of needs and abilities, please note that I do have experience and training in working with students on the autism spectrum, and with those who are English Language Learners.
Get in touch so we can discuss how I can work with you to succeed!

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I was trained in ABA therapy and worked as an autism therapy assistant for a total of two years (I do not use ABA therapy techniques in my tutoring). During this time I worked with students ranging all along the spectrum from non-verbal to Asperger's Syndrome. I also worked as a nanny for a boy who was profoundly affected by autism for two summers, including tutoring in reading, math, writing, and speech.
