Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADD/ADHD

Over my 13 year bilingual/ESL teaching career, I was faced with many students who were diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and studied and used many different creative approaches in the classroom.

Then I completed my second Masters Degree in Professional Counseling, began Life Coaching children and trained with a Play Therapist, Dr. Joyce Mills, in her method, called StoryPlay. StoryPlay became the foundation of my coaching practice, along with my many other learnings, including; NLP, breathing practices, meditations, visualizations, etc. and I began to focus more on the child's inner resources, sensory strengths and many other experiential and hands on practices for working with children who have ADD/ADHD.

I believe that children who experience ADD/ADHD are highly creative and I work with them to find healthier and more practical outlets for their creative energy, while learning to become more responsible and focused on the task at hand.
