I go beyond tutoring and provide Educational Therapy. I coach children on how to think rather than what to think. Tutoring typically focuses on content while Educational Therapy builds efficient learning processes. I provide children that struggle to learn with tools that will strengthen their memory, increase reading fluency, foster attention and focus, enhance visual and auditory processing, promote timing and coordination, reduce impulsivity and boost self-confidence.

I have a Master's Degree in Special Education and am certified by 3 therapeutic interventions: Interactive Metronome, PACE (Processing and Cognitive Enhancement) by Learning Rx, and NILD Educational Therapy by the National Institute for Learning Development. All of my sessions are individualized and take place in your home.
