Teaching since:

I love working with college students! I have been doing it in some capacity or another for the past 20 years. I enjoy mentoring my junior academic colleagues (aka students) and approach teaching from a mentorship model. I get really excited when I see my students succeed. I have been told that my warm and empathetic approach makes learning difficult concepts less stressful.Because my studies in psychology have taught me that learning proceeds best when one feels safe and supported, I provide feedback that is constructive and instructive, not demeaning or vague.

I completed my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology in 2014, from Washington State University. During my tenure there, I supported my studies by teaching academic success courses to struggling students. The primary focus of this course was learning how to write stellar academic research papers in APA format. I broke the process down step-by-step, from picking a topic, using library databases, evaluating the quality of resources, arranging a flowing and cohesive argument based on empirical data, using academically-appropriate sentence structures and language (e.g. the active voice), and citing appropriately in APA style.

I am also open to working with younger students, particularly those motivated high school juniors and seniors who want to get a jump start on learning a college-level skill. Instruction can be scaled to meet the student wherever they are in their learning process.
