Thank you for inquiring about my services. My philosophy is that every student can learn. I have 20 years of experience as a state certified educator in elementary and special education. I have experience with individualizing instruction based on the child's learning styles and academic needs. An initial assessment will be given to determine this information.

My sessions include hands-on learning, Floortime techniques for special needs kids, games, visuals, and tactile/kinesthetic strategies. I make sure that the child is confident so they feel better about learning. Your child is unique and their instruction will be also.

I am very passionate about teaching kids to read! Literacy affects all subject areas. It's my job to help each child feel success. Children learn to read at their own pace and I will honor their development as a learner.

Elementary Education:


I am a Texas state certified special educator. My certification is for grades K-12 in all subject areas and I have 20 years of experience. I have worked with autistic, learning disabled, speech impaired, ADD/ADHD, and mentally retarded students. I have experience with being the lead teacher of a self-contained classroom. On my own, I have consulted with parents and other educators in teaching them how to help ADD/ADHD students in the following areas:
*time management
*study skills
*self-monitoring techniques to stay focused
*subject area mnemonics to retain information
*visual cue reminders for learning content


I completed a 500 hour massage therapy program which included anatomy, physiology and pathology courses. I received A's in all of those courses.


I have had extensive training in working with kids who have high functioning autism/ Asperger's. My training has included ABA training, workshops and college level training on learning and behavioral disabilities. I am a state certified special educator. I also am a certified learning specialist for kids with special needs.


As a Texas certified special educator, I have worked with students who have been identified as autistic; as well as consulted with their parents. I am a parent of an autistic child, so I have professional and personal experience in navigating the autistic spectrum disorder maze. I have had extensive training in working with autistic children in the areas of floor time activities, TEACCH, Montessori methods and the F.A.C.E.S. curriculum. Play is an integral part of getting the autistic child to interact with his or her environment and learn to communicate and I use the aforementioned strategies and resources to help children connect with others.

College Counseling

Education is the key to having a successful future. I have a decade of experience as a college counselor. Allow me to help you or your student navigate the college maze from testing to financial aid info to application essay development.
