Class Experience

Students will have the opportunity to learn new ways to improve their study habits and note taking skills. 
I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents, and young adults within the educational and mental health systems.   While in graduate school, I was a part time college instructor which ignited my passion for teaching. I then became a mental health therapist, working in residential facilities as well as the community. For the past three years, I have taught English to students abroad.  

Along with being a teacher, I am also a writer. I have had two short stories published, and I continue to regularly submit material. For three years, I had a blog that included my short stories, reviews, and opinions on various issues. Other examples of my writing experience consist of curriculums for an independent living program, program descriptions, numerous website articles, as well as online advertisements. I enjoy sharing my passion for writing with students and hearing about what inspires them. I strive to provide a supportive atmosphere for my students, allowing them to harness and express their creativity in ways unique to them. 

Throughout my educational and professional careers, I have implemented various tools in my own life to create and maintain a system of learning, organization, and balance. After numerous successes and failures, I now believe the knowledge of "how to learn" is a skill that serves us well after we graduate from school. I enjoy sharing these valuable skills with students who may discover a new way to be productive, feel confident as they plan for their future, and apply them to different parts of their lives for the rest of their lives.   
2 hours 40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
