Occupational Therapist with field experience + Master's degree education offering tutoring and coaching

Methodology

I let my students take the lead and set the pace for learning. I, myself, learn best through visual aids, teaching others and doing things "on-hand" so to speak, so I understand that everyone presents with a different learning style. Understanding your learning style is my top priority to set up content and review to best fit your learning style.

Background

I am an occupational therapist who is currently practicing in the field of pediatrics, but who is looking to continue to foster my love for teaching by becoming a tutor part time. I have wonderful academic experience graduating Summa Cum Laude at my undergraduate university and experience supporting my peers academically through my Master's degree. I also love sharing my passion for occupational therapy to the curious individual who is considering pursuing a similar career path. Aside from having to listen to my corny sense of humor, you will love learning with me!
