Educational Therapy Solutions

 SERVICES


I provide specialized instruction, using research-based methods and materials, that is designed to remediate deficits in the basic skill areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. I also provide support to students who need assistance with: organization, planning and time management, study skills, and effective usage of learning strategies. My students range in age from those beginning their education in the early elementary grades through those starting college.

 
Areas of Expertise:

  • Mathematics
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Organization, Study Skills, and Time Management
  • Executive Function Issues
  • Academic Assessment
  • Test Preparation


Educational Therapy Solutions is focused on providing high-quality individualized educational services for students with learning challenges in reading, writing, and mathematics, along with executive function difficulties, including organization and study skills.  Students are taught via a 
high quality program that maintains their interest while deficits in basic skills are remediated. Students learn specific strategies which are then applied to carefully planned academic tasks.  This process provides students with the skills needed to become an active participant in the learning process by learning how to learn, rather than what to learn.


  • Mathematics:


My goal is to assist students to learn and apply strategies that will allow them to remediate gaps in their math learning and develop a firm foundation on which to continue growing.



  • Reading:


The reading programs that I use all employ various forms of visual, auditory, and tactile/ kinesthetic methodologies that have shown to be effective with learning disabled and dyslexic students.
