One-on-one tutoring especially for learners with spatial strengths. This includes spatial learners, dyslexic learners, ADHD learners (time, materials, and task management), and ASD learners. As a classroom teacher for the highly and profoundly gifted for 10 years, my specialty most recently has become as a cognitive coach.
