Approach

My approach to working with students, first and foremost, is treating each individual with dignity and respect, within a congenial and user-friendly environment of energy and positivity. I meet each student where they are at academically and emotionally and we build learning skills from there.

The success of educational therapy is based upon a working relationship of trust and support. I pride myself in fostering the development of self- worth, independence and a positive “I CAN DO IT” approach. Each session is built around the emergent needs of the student based upon the priorities of the day or week.

How It Works

  • I teach students how to prioritize, plan, strategize and organize in a systematic way.
  • I remediate and develop reading comprehension skills.
  • I build study skills and test preparation for tests and quizzes.
  • I use current technology and a variety of educational resources to help support learning.
  • I promote the development of research skills through hands-on practice.
  • I use the student’s curriculum to reinforce and teach underlying skills, in the areas of reading comprehension, critical thinking, inferring information, problem solving, expanded written expression, verbal expression, development of vocabulary, self- advocacy skills.
  • I am committed to a light hearted, and fun loving approach with my students.
