I view each student's needs and the corresponding best method to help them as a problem solving exercise.  Oftentimes there are multiple solutions, but I engage the student and their family to identify what has/does work best for them and understand which approach will be most effective going forward.  This approach has resulted in tremendous success with students in the following areas: K-12 subject tutoring, ADD, ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Communication Skills Training, Vocabulary Development, Problem Solving Skills, Asperger's Syndrome, Dyscalculia, and more. I will provide guidance and recommendations for supplemental actions to aide in the student's development between sessions.
