Personalized Academic Coaching

Students receive academic support in identified areas as well as support in general homework completion. Through integrated feedback from the student's learning institutions, parent feedback, and brief academic assessments for the child, I customize lessons to improve identified areas of need. I also provide homework help, study strategy coaching, and support with planning and executing projects.

I also walk students through the meaningful practice of reflecting on their progress in their classes, and real time help completing assignments and projects as well as support studying for tests.

~Literacy Foundations (Orton Gillingham informed approach)

~Reading Comprehension

~Written Language (Step Up to Writing informed approach)

~English through 12th grade
