Welcome! It doesn’t have to be that way…..There are aspects to learning and academics that are often overlooked in the mainstream, from school systems to tutors. The truth is that there can be challenges regarding academic performance that range from overwhelming stress in the high achieving student, to a deficit in capability in the struggling student. High achieving students, in particular, are often overlooked. Their stress levels, nevousness, and even self-doubt and negative beliefs can be detrimental. The same hold true for students of any level. If these issues are not addressed, no amount of intervention or tutoring in the world will stick long term. THAT is what makes what I do different! I use alternative learning and emotional management trechniques that get results, without the use of medications. Let me say upfront I am NOT a psychologist or therapist.(more about me on another page) I don’t diagnose learning disorders. What I do is to help you deal with the behaviors, with the negative emotions and beliefs, that come with them. For academics, I teach HOW to learn, as opposed to just standard tutoring. I help students with LD’s get over the trauma that school has become. I help parents get over THEIR negative emotions regarding the issue as well. I help students improve grades, behavior, and focus. The tools and techniques I use combine to create complete transformation of the learner at the most fundamental level! Areas I work with include: Overcoming test nervousness and school related stress Eliminating negative beliefs and self-esteem issues Reducing the effects of bullying Motivation issues Academic success skills, such as: Reading Comprehension, Reading Fluency, Memorization, Spelling, Learning Math facts and concepts, anger issues. stress and more. Your child can experience results like these….
“Hey John, got out of the SAT a little while ago and feel really good about how it went. Our 4 sessions helped me a ton. I was really able to feel the difference between the first time I took it, and today. Not once did I go into panic mode. I am hoping to get a good score on this one, but regardless of how I end up doing, it was an honor to work with you and I hope to work with you again in the future. ” This student went on to have a GAIN of 300 points on their SAT!
