Tutoring & Coaching

 

I create sessions tailored to students’ needs and learning styles. In particular, I work with students who are neurodiverse, especially those who have ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, reading and writing delays, processing issues, executive function gaps, and other learning disabilities or differences.​

Help your child move from struggling to successful.

 

With 17 years of experience working with students in all grades, I'm an expert tutor who can help your child succeed. I help children move through fear and resistance to feel more confident and comfortable with school.​

I originally trained as an elementary teacher and discovered that

 

my talent is in one-on-one instruction. I have bolstered my training with additional professional development in mindfulness instruction and the Orton-Gillingham approach, which helps students close gaps in reading skills.

I do more than traditional tutoring. Depending on your students’ needs,

 

I also incorporate mindfulness, meditation, energy work, guided imagery, active imagination, art, and dreamwork. I also teach students how to access their inner strength and intuition to help them make better decisions and overcome obstacles. These skills will help them now and throughout their life.

GENERAL SUBJECT, STUDY SKILLS, & HOMEWORK HELP 

Based on my experience, most students need a minimum of once-a-week sessions for three months to show improvement, and twice weekly sessions are preferred. Therefore, I ask for a 12-session commitment to start working together. We will have one trial session to determine if it is a good match before you commit to 12 sessions. For test prep I offer an inital 8-session package, with the option to add lessons if needed.

 

Payment options for 12 sessions (once a week):

 

 Monthly: $320

Upfront: $910 ($50 savings)

Payment options for 24 sessions (twice a week):

 

Monthly: $640

Upfront: $1870 ($50 savings)
