I notice that many of my students, especially those with ADD/ADHD, are extremely intelligent. The challenge is not in understanding the material, but in performing the work consistently and calmly enough to see results. For this blog post I will describe alternate nostril breathing, a type of pranayama (breath control) practiced in hatha yoga. This is a meditative breath that soothes the central... read more

Well, my move to San Francisco from Los Angeles is officially complete! By that I mean that we finally got it together to get the cable people to hook up our internet connection, and we don't need to go to the library or buy a cup of $2 coffee every time we want to check our email. I thank the WyzAnt people and my clients for their patience during this transition period. Y'all have shown... read more

As a professional aromatherapist, I have been able to put my knowledge to good use during tutoring sessions, since many of my students have either ADD or ADHD. During a tutoring session, certain essential oils can be diffused to help the student focus better, have greater clarity, increase attention span, improve self confidence, soothe emotional upset and anger, and help calm and ground.

They say that millions of American children will lose about 25% of their reading skills and approximately 2.6 months of math computation skills this summer (according to the U.S. Department of Education and the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management).

If you're looking for hands-on ways to build your child's math skills, head to the kitchen. Math skills are important along with text books, manipulatives and games. Even very young children can help in the kitchen. At ages two and three, my niece and son assisted me in making a pumpkin pie. Having all the ingredients and tools ready to use will help when working with youngsters who aren't great... read more
