Speech And Language Fun
I am a Purdue University graduate of the College of Sciences. I have a bachelor's degree in Speech-Language and Hearing Sciences, a minor in Human Developnment and Family Sciences. My passion is working to allow children to improve their speech and language skills. I was a Speech-Language Pathologist Assistant for 2 years at a school. During those years, I had gained experience working with kindergarten all the way to high school seniors. Specifically working with children who had speech and/or language disorders, but not excluding typically developing students. I want to continue to help children with their academic and social goals in a tutoring setting. I look forward to watching my students grow in their self-confidence as well as in their academic abilities.
