Every Child Can Learn, my role is to help them learn how they learn best! I like to focus on the strengths that a student has, and teach strategies that can compensate for the weaknesses they present. I approach teaching from a practical perspective while taking advantage of the natural context in which learning occurs. I believe in teaching to the individual style in which the student learns best. In order to determine this style, I do an assessment for each individual child. I will start from where the student is in the area they require tutoring, and use their strengths to help them develop skills towards becoming a more successful learner.

I have been working in the field of Special Education for the past 22 years; I began my career as a Speech Therapist and developed into an educator with a specialization in the area of Autism Spectrum Disorders. I enjoy working with elementary age students who demonstrate specific learning disabilities and specific language delays in the area of pragmatics and NLD.
