EducationUniversity of Phoenix-San Diego Campus - BS, Psychology
ExperienceI received a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Phoenix in 2010. I also intend on getting a master's in education, as well as gaining the credentials to teach multiple subjects. I have worked around children in many different settings, from day care, school, community outreach programs, and tutoring. Over the last four years, I worked with students struggling from various educational challenges such as ADHD, dyslexia, autism, and a range of sensory processing disorders.I tutor multiple subjects, such as algebra II and a range of science classes. While I enjoy tutoring in a wide variety of subjects, I especially enjoy teaching history and language arts. I also have a wealth of experience teaching study skills and standardized test preparation.I believe in establishing a connection with my students, which I find myself to be adept in doing, in order to facilitate learning. It is essential for a tutor to have an interest in helping his or her students. To that end, I design lessons that focus on building upon the student's strengths as well as overcoming weaknesses. I also value honesty and direct communication in my tutoring style. I believe a teacher should be honest when offering constructive feedback to students, especially when helping them strengthen their weak points.As a mother of two young children, with another expected shortly, I have the patience and understanding needed to help students navigate through their challenges. My hobbies include spending time with my family, being outdoors, and doing art in my free time.
HobbiesReading, art, playing soccer, and being a mom.
