ADD/ADHD

I have developed skills and training for myself and others in how to provide high quality direct instruction to students who need to consider learning and physical challenges. I have specific experience with students who have ADD/ADHD and need to improve their organizational skills, focus, and completion of tasks and assignments in a timely manner. I have also coached parents and students in ways to handle various situations as they may arise in school, at home and in the community.

Career Development

I provide life/career coaching, personal development, counseling and professional support to a variety of clients. Much of my work includes appropriate assessment, selection of healthy career paths and life/career balance.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a former elementary teacher, and I currently train teachers in best techniques and strategies for all learning needs and styles. I am highly successful in teaching students how to organize themselves for better learning outcomes.

Reading

I have successfully taught English, reading and writing. I am particularly successful in working with adults who need to learn or review skills for advancement.

Social Studies

I have a graduate education in social studies. I have taught social studies and English at the middle and secondary levels. I have a track record of success with students who have difficulty memorizing all the facts, understanding the connections and enjoying historical events.

Sociology

My undergraduate major was sociology and I was one of the highest achieving students. I also have a graduate degree with a psycho/social concentration, have applied the principles in my profession, and taught or conducted trainings based upon the the theories in the field. I am particularly comfortable with adults and others who have gaps in their educational preparation and backgrounds.

Study Skills

I have many years of experience as a learning specialist, academic coach, teacher and teacher trainer. All of my work has involved showing students how to study and prepare for their classes, organizing material to suit their learning style and figuring out what is important to learn. My style helps students build confidence through solid skills development.
