Psychology undergraduate currently enrolled in Education, can tutor elementary, middle and highschool.

Methodology

I am very organized and reliable, patient, and understanding and demonstrate a commitment to learning with various modes of practice. While differentiating instruction when teaching materials as well as providing formats that will engage all learners in a comfortable and accepting way in order for them to reach their full potential. I believe that with hard work, support and engagement all students can thrive in their environments and reach their potentials.

Background

I have a Bachelor of arts in Psychology, specialization on child development and a Bachelors of Education specializing in Primary/Junior.also have a degree in Bachelors of Psychology and a lot of experience working with children from various ages, 3 months to 24 years old in diverse environments. Currently I am volunteering at an after school program called Jump to Start Reading and Running, as well as Morse Jr. P.S.
