I love working with families and providing the additional support needed to make life a little easier. I have been a Learning Strategist and Academic Tutor for the past 6 years. Prior to moving to Palo Alto I had my own tutoring business in Los Angeles and continue to work with many of my students online. A little about myself... I majored in Child and Adolescent Development and Psychology. As a Learning Strategist I specialize in working with students who have diverse learning needs. My background in Child Development has resulted in my unique tutoring techniques. My philosophy and curriculum focuses on the person. When children form a bond with their educators, learning is optimized. Children are like sponges and if the learning material is presented appropriately they will soak it all in! In my free time I love to make a mess in my kitchen! Some of my other pastimes include hiking and painting.
