I have taught college level and K-12 study skills. I teach students how to figure out their learning style. This will help with organizing notes, study materials, and other learning aids. I help students develop organization and an approach on what areas need the most work and we prioritize that list. I help students learn about concentration and memory and how that helps them with their study routine and test taking. I help students with time management and teach basis strategies on test taking, study time limits, etc. We work together to develop a plan that will work for them which we review in the beginning session and update as they grow and develop.
I have 7 years working within Higher Ed with students as a Counselor. I assisted students with taking Interest and Personality Inventories to help them narrow down a more suitable career path. I worked with them on choosing majors, finding out areas of strengths in regards to academic subjects needed for all majors. I paired them with Mentors in areas of interest to get a behind the scene look at chosen careers. I also prepared them with mock interviews, resume assistance, internship / volunteer opportunities and appropriate work attire workshops, etc.
