A very caring and patient master teacher of 35 years will motivate and delight your struggling student and help him/her not only work out the answers but also acquire the love of learning that comes from learning!
As an educational therapist I will promote your student’s individual learning style by discovering which techniques work best and help him/her understand and adapt to an appropriate learning style. These coping skills will lead to more productive learning, less frustration, and higher self-esteem. With K-12 students most of our work together may center around actual homework. I am available to communicate with your student's teacher at no extra charge.
As a certified K-8 Reading Specialist, I will assess your child's phonics and reading comprehension skills and create a program for his/her particular needs. I have had years of experience working with students diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, Aspergers, Mild Autism, and Learning Disabilities.
My experience with, and passion for, K-12 Math and beginning college algebra will make math a triumph! I have a "bag of tricks" that always inspire math-challenged students.
