Special Education Clinician And Tutor Interested In Nannying And Pet Sitting
Hello there! I graduated from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA in December 2013 with BA's in Psychology and Studio Art with an emphasis in painting. During my undergraduate studies, I served as a tutor for homeless and inner-city children at McCarver Elementary. I tutored students in a wide variety of subjects including math, science, reading, writing, art and history. In addition, I served as a mentor to the students and helped establish them with both emotional and academic support. I currently work at a learning center where I implement educational therapy services and interventions for students with special needs ranging in ages from Pre-K to middle school. I provide instruction and support to the children and collect data and track the student's progress over time.
I am also conversationally fluent in American Sign Language. I completed four semesters of ASL and greatly enjoy the unique nature of the language. I can teach at various levels and starting points and help educate about deaf culture as well. In addition, I am also deeply passionate about science, history, nature, and animals. In my spare time, I enjoy painting, drawing, photography, playing guitar, hiking and travel.
