Dear Mrs. Yael, It was a pleasure working with your two kids to help them grow in their English reading, writing, and speaking skills. They definitely seemed to know how to focus and be motivated towards their education. Best wishes, Dr. Lena S. Magardechian, MFT-PSYD

Psychologist with excellent teaching and organizational skills

Dr. Lena, is very organized. This is a great skill! She launched my project with organizing it from the tiniest detail (this set a firm foundation) for us to work from. She’s really knowledgeable and is willing to learn new information- takes the time to learn new things on her own time which enhances our sessions. So far, I am really pleased and thankful for her.

The Cheerleader Our Daughter Needed

Lena has been the reading angel our 7 yr old daughter needed. She was able to connect instantly with her and brought enthusiasm to a subject that felt daunting. Our daughter's attention issues and specific learning styles may always need an individualized path, but in helping her find that excitement for reading and learning despite her struggles, she has given her a gift that will propel her into the school year and be something for her to reflect on for life.
