Artistic And Scientific
I have tutored in a high school setting for an 8th grade chemistry class . Students who received tutelage showed drastic improvements in exam score and confidence with the material. During my university experience I would frequently form study groups and help students using sketches, diagrams and schematics to illustrate complex topics.

Clinical Social Worker Loves Humanity
Hello, I'm a 43-year-old woman who grew up all over but returned to my roots in So Cal 15 years ago. I went back to school in my 30s and earned a Master's in Social Work. I've worked with all age ranges but increasingly I've wanted to help elderly clients, as I see how lacking most Gerontology services in LA are. I adore hearing people's personal history and I'm great at drawing quiet people out of their shell. I am not a nurse but I have First Aid & CPR training and I've worked with senior clients before inc. assistance with taking Medication, exercising, socializing, ADL building, etc. I am a very compassionate person who can see the good in everyone. I would love to help you or your family member and get to know who you are! Because we're all somebody and we all deserve the best life possible. I'm responsible, respectful and reliable. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions!
