I have been an educational therapist for over 10 years with a master's degree in education, and I know how hard learning can be when you don't get it in class. With Common Core now in California, the demands on our children are going to go up drastically, with potential for self-esteem and grades to fall. The only way to be ready is to get experienced, caring support.

It's time for a "Common Core Coach"! We will work in all subject areas, but specifically math and ELA (English Language Arts) to make sure your child does not fall behind as the new standards are implemented. Your child does not have to be one of the "planned failures." We can succeed together, and you should not have to do it alone.

Please note: You come to me. I work out of a classroom in a private school that is open to us year-round. It is safe, secure, fun and I provide effective, creative lessons just for you! Students from anywhere are welcome, but I am very convenient for anyone in the San Gabriel Valley.

I love to figure out how people learn and will teach you how to "know your brain." Common Core requires that every kind of learner be able to evaluate, analyze and explain concepts in math and English language arts in many different ways. Everyone learns differently. By understanding how you learn and where both your strengths and weaknesses are, you get a better chance to use your strengths to help you grow!

We will play games, use technology, laugh and learn a lot. Learning is hard work, and I'm here to help you succeed. -Erin S., MA.Ed.

ADD/ADHD

As an educational therapist for over 10 years, I specialize in working with students with attention deficits, visual and auditory processing difficulties and other cognitive issues.

I'm a certified cognitive therapist in various programs as well as a specialist in "challenging" student profiles.

Aspergers

Asperger's is considered high functioning ASD with a need for social interactions that take into account the student's unique view of the world. I have take classes and studied learning differences and also worked in centers specifically for children with learning disabilities. I relate, engage and teach this population of students with care and kindness. I'm also able to adapt curriculum to meet their specific needs. I have been an educational therapist for over 10 years with a Master's Degree in Education.

Autism

I currently work with high functioning students diagnosed with ASD or suspected to be on the spectrum. I have worked with autistic children in a wide range of subjects and levels. I am not an occupational therapist, so I would generally only take on students who are verbal and high functioning.

Dyslexia

With extensive training in reading and writing remediation, I have a strong background in programs that specifically address the needs of children with language disabilities. I can help you identify specific areas of weakness as well as remediate those areas in the context of school work.

Elementary (K-6th)

Elementary students succeed when concepts are broken down into concrete ideas that they can grasp. With Common Core, students will need help to navigate how to demonstrate their knowledge in several different ways. With a background in learning styles and 15 years of experience developing creative lessons, I find a way for kids to connect with learning so it's real to them. I have been an educational therapist for over 10 years with a Master's Degree in Education.

Elementary Math

I have been teaching math, creating math curriculum and designing ways to help everyone understand math no matter their previous experiences for over 15 years. I love helping students engage in math and finding those "aha" moments that will help them succeed throughout school and life. I teach we all can find the "inner math genius" with the right tools.

ISEE

I have been tutoring ISEE test prep for two years. I work with students on testing strategies, question analysis, time management and of course specific skills- especially in math.

I also have students practiced writing within the given 30 minute time frame to help them learn how to organize and execute a well-written essay in a short time.

Phonics

During educational therapy training, I took courses in linguistics. More importantly, I am able to use LiPs (Lindamood-Bell) and other programs that specifically address phonological processing and decoding skills.

Special Needs

With a background in educational therapy, I've worked almost exclusively with many different types of students who have special needs.

From language processing to physical limitations, we will work together to find a successful program as unique as your child.

Study Skills

I have developed systems of organization, time management, record keeping and different strategies for understanding classwork and tests. When students work with me, they develop usable systems for learning and keeping track of assignments that they can continue to use after I'm gone.I have been an educational therapist for over 10 years with a Master's Degree in Education.
