Marriage and family therapy graduate student offering lessons in college prep and psychology

Methodology

I enjoy keeping students engaged by making lessons relatable and encouraging students to integrate their new found knowledge into other areas of their lives. I believe that everyone learns differently, and that being adaptable to the needs of each student is critical to providing the best quality instruction. I also like to incorporate exam practice and strategy, as this is an area of considerable anxiety for many students. Building confidence can greatly enhance a student's ability to test well and more accurately showcase their depth of knowledge and command of a subject.

Background

I am currently a second year graduate student in a couple and family therapy master's program at Alliant University in Sacramento. I have a bachelor's degree in biology with an emphasis on human anatomy and physiology and a minor in developmental psychology. I've worked as a substitute teacher and coach for the last 6 years, working with all age groups from kindergarteners to college students.

Olivia was my track and field coach at George Fox University for three years. While at GFU, Olivia displayed numerous skills and a positive attitude which made her a great coach. She was always encouraging, patient, and pleasant to be around. Further, I never saw her lose her patience or show her frustration - even though there were plenty of opportunities for which a person similarly situated would have, myself included. Overall, Olivia was a great coach and would make an excellent teacher or tutor.
