St. Olaf College - Bachelors, History, Russian Language, Russian Area Studies , Vanderbilt University - Masters, Special Education-High Incidence Disabilities
I earned my graduate degree from Vanderbilt University's Peabody College in education. I then went on to receive my certification in special education for students with behavioral and learning disabilities in grades four through eight. I have had the privilege of working with a large variety of children from diverse backgrounds which has helped build my teaching and tutoring skills as much as anything I learned in a classroom. I currently tutor several subjects, including algebra 1, middle school math, reading, essay writing, literature, phonics, pre-algebra, math, English, college and high school English, and comparative literature. I also work with students who are preparing for a standardized test or entrance examination such as the ACT, PSAT, SAT, ISEE, or SSAT. My teaching style is professional but compassionate. As a teacher, I understand just how important it is to develop a good working relationship with each student. Children are often intimidated by the learning process and this is especially true for those who have struggled with learning in the past. It is necessary for them to feel safe enough to ask questions if they are to thrive and reach their academic potential. I am a proponent of goal setting and positive reinforcement and have found these tactics to be quite effective with my students.
