Who I help:

My passion is helping middle school, high school & college students (and parents!) who feel overwhelmed and stressed-out by today’s high-stakes educational environment. I see students, often high-achieving, who have become almost paralyzed by the academic pressures and their inability to successfully identify what they need to do and how to do it. These students are lacking skills. Many students have been high-achievers most of their lives – completing homework in class or on the bus and not really needing to study while still earning high grades. So, what happens? Rigor. Lots of rigor. As students advance through middle school, high school and even college, there comes a time when the rigor starts to outpace their ability to “wing it” and do well.
