EducationI have a BA: Psychology, and am currently pursuing my PhD in Special Education.
I have taken numerous focused on how children learn best and done extensive work in instructional design. In addition to these areas of study I have taken coursework and conducted research in the areas of reading, motivation to learn, and specific supports for learners with various disabilities.
I have also taken extensive coursework in research design and analysis including advanced statistics.
ExperienceI have 10+ years experience tutoring. and 5 years' experience teaching General Education and Special Education.
I love getting children excited to learn and helping them achieve more than they previously thought possible. It is exciting to work with people (children and adults) to help them achieve their goals and academic success. I believe that children are best supported when they are treated holistically as people. Each individual needs something a little different to achieve their greatest levels of success. Even so, some things are consistent across people. When someone struggles to learn things within a particular academic domain (or across academic domains), they benefit from explicitly delivered instruction that is both thoughtfully sequenced and engaging. These same children need practice activities that are both aligned with this instruction and engaging in their own way.
Instruction is best designed when it is carefully constructed with the needs of the individual learner in mind. Kids learn best when they are having fun, and when the approach to instruction makes the content relevant to them.
This is what I do, and why I do it.
HobbiesI have a great many interests. I love most everything outdoors (hiking, kayaking, camping, sports, etc.). I also enjoy a good book, art, and music. My favorite genres for reading are historical fiction, sci-fi/fantasy, and nonfiction. I have eclectic taste in music and enjoy playing cello, guitar, and piano. I am married and have two children, a cat, and a dog. We try to get out and be active as much as we can.
