About this tutor

Hello! My name is Colleen! I received my B.S. in Psychology from Capella University graduating with a 3.94 GPA. I have extensive classroom and tutoring experience, having taught a variety of subjects and worked with students of all levels and abilities. I have been employed by my local high school as an Illinois State Board of Education paraprofessional since 2007. Currently, I work  with higher level special education students (learning disabilities, ADHD, etc.). The subjects I have taught are biology, physical science, geometry, U.S. History and English. Since 2014, I have been employed part time as a teacher for an academic enrichment program which serves students in grades Pre-K through 8th. Here, the subjects I teach are English, reading and elementary level mathematics.  Because I earned my bachelor degree as an adult (over 30), I am especially sensitive to the unique challenges experienced by adult learners, and love tutoring adult students as well!  I am also a certified paralegal, having received my post bachelor certification from Roosevelt University in Chicago. I was employed for 14 years in both the public and private sectors as a paralegal, during which time I developed excellent writing and research skills. Aside from my academic background, this extensive writing experience has enabled me to become an effective writing tutor. I am also available to assist with resumes, college essays, professional writing, study skills and organizational skills.

My experiences in these positions have enabled me to become a patient, knowledgeable, and dedicated educator, who truly enjoys teaching and helping others reach their full potential.    It feels great knowing that I’m making a difference in someone's educational experience.  I believe that each student is different and that everyone learns differently.  With that in mind, I do my best to determine what those learning styles are, and from there, address concepts in a way that is easily understood. To me, there is nothing more rewarding than to be working with a student, and suddenly seeing something "click" for them. I would appreciate the opportunity to assist you with your tutoring needs!  Thank you!
