To Prospective Clients:

I would like for you to understand that I am a tutor/instructor that can offer you a kind of support that is unparalleled. As a student that grew up with a learning disability and attention deficits, I personally understand how to develop the social skills that are needed in order to sustain in classroom. In addition, I have spent 12 years teaching middle school in all subjects at some point in my career. Also, I was given the students with special needs as well as differently talented or out-of-the-box type of students. Finally, I am a parent of a gifted child that can be viewed as an Apserger's child. My educational background is diverse on many levels. My main goal though is to provide instruction that is centered around him or her. As I connect and engage with your child, we will develop a love for learning that can be sustained throughout life. For your child, I will differentiate by whatever means necessary so that they will feel success. I look forward to working with your child and you.

Educationally yours,
Lisa T.
