Specialties
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. I have worked with students from 1st grade to 12th grade to learn how to manage their brain; to get them back on track in school. I support kids as they learn how to find their internal power.
