As a Strategy Instructor, my #1 priorities are comfortability and transparency. As a student, starting Beyond Access may feel a bit overwhelming. I find building rapport with my students over the course of the school year to be the key to student success. The ability to talk freely and openly about academic stressors and positive directions for change is an acquired skill, and it begins with enhancing Student-SI rapport. Enhanced rapport allows for flexibility and individualized services provided by the Strategy Instructor to the student, ensuring that every meeting is tailored specifically to each student based on their learning profile and individual needs in a safe, comfortable environment. Outside of school/work, I enjoy makeup, spending time with friends, shopping, trying new coffee shops, and getting outside as often as possible.
