Could your child use a breakthrough in learning and self-image?
When children have difficulty learning as easily as their peers, they often interpret this to mean they are deficient in some way. As a tutor, I consider it insufficient to give them tools to better understand academic subject matter, although this is an essential part of what I do. In addition, I make sure they know how smart and capable they already are!
I specialize in tutoring 5th thru 8th grade children in math and writing. I use a variety of creative methods to facilitate comprehension and skill development while implicity addressing the emotional side effects of a child's needing extra support.
Most students who work with me undergo a dramatic transformation from feeling overwhelmed and ashamed to feeling competent, confident, and excited to take on new learning challenges. Students I work with have realized they do not need any more sessions with me after a matter of only months or even weeks!
I am also available for consultations with parents regarding all aspects of nurturing their children's awareness of their own unique strengths, intelligence, and greatness.
Your child and I can work together at my Upper West Side location or I can come to your home.

To schedule your free consultation with me, please email me and so we can set up a phone consultation or meeting and figure out how I can be of help.
Upon request, I will be happy to put you in touch with the many former and current clients I've had the privilege of supporting as well as the teachers and school administrators who can attest to the difference my support has made for their students.
I hold degrees from Williams College (B.A. in English), NYU (law degree), and Columbia (Masters in Social Work). I completed two years of post-graduate training and supervised clinical work at the Ackerman Institute for the Family. I have been tutoring on and off,
during or in between other pursuits, for over 20 years. I am a mother of two.
Thank you in advance for considering allowing me to become a positive part of your child's growth, development, and learning!
