When I partner with the individual child or adult, I teach each person "how to learn" and the skills needed to close the achievement gap. My students master both the academic and the organizational skills they will need to learn new skills as they progress in school and in life.
Unlike tutoring or group remedial lessons, my educational therapy approach, based upon "tried and true" research-based methods, is uniquely tailored to each student who then learns to turn struggles into successes.
