PhD
Education & Reading Specialist
Chicago

Welcome! I’m glad you are here.

This is the first step to helping your child learn to love learning.

I generally begin my work with a student with a simple invitation for a hot chocolate. During this initial tête-à-tête, before doing any testing or tutoring, I get to know your child as a human being with interests, fears, strengths, goals, and passions. I learn about them as more than just students and they learn about me as more than just a teacher. They learn that I am there to guide them, to help them be their best self. I make learning fun and approach it in ways they may not have experienced before. The trust that I build with children helps them to be available for learning and excited about it!
