Structure of Intellect certification, in progress
ExperienceI work for a company called The Learning Turtle: http://thelearningturtle.com/. We specialize in the Structure of Intellect, a theory of intelligence that evaluates 90 cognitive abilities and has found that they are malleable. It’s pretty amazing! I often use the SOI modules in tandem with content work, according to the student’s needs.
I have seven years of experience in education, in the classroom and one-on-one. I primarily tutor upper grade reading and writing. I also teach multi-subject elementary, and have recently taught french. In college, I assistant taught a religion course for two years; when I was in high school, I tutored math and french; and when I was in 6th grade, I tutored several younger students in the flute!
I also work as a an editor. Over the last five years, I’ve worked on a range of projects from preschool storybooks and urban fantasy to MA dissertations in theology and PhD systems management and economics papers. I’ve published a number of essays and poems online (some under my maiden name, Robinson).
HobbiesI’m a Roman Catholic, practicing at a Melkite Catholic church, where my husband and I got married. Every week we pray in english, greek, and arabic. In college, my concentration allowed me to study children’s literature and fairy tales, two major interests. I lead a creative writing group that has been meeting for five years. I have written half of a young adult novel. It’s currently on hold for another work of fiction.
