Learning Specialist & Founder
I am an Atlanta native and former teacher who worked in both public and private schools in Metro Atlanta beginning in 2003. In 2014, I started my own business to focus my expertise on providing students with one-on-one support that is tailored to their unique needs.
My clients: Fifth grade through college
- Executive function coaching & study skills development
- English language arts, including reading comprehension, writing and grammar
- Social studies, including AP courses
- Science, including biology and chemistry
- Math, including Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2
Regardless of what our focus may be on any given day, I am always assessing the whole child and evaluating how to increase learning and productivity through higher level strategies that can improve performance across the board.
Support for learning differences: Many of my clients have disorders that impact learning, and I enjoy teaching students how to strategize around their learning differences, including ADHD, executive function disorder, dyslexia, neurodevelopmental disorders, slow processing speed, anxiety, OCD, ASD depression and more. In addition, I draw on my experience as a former 504 Coordinator in Fulton County Schools to consult with parents about obtaining accommodations at school and on the SAT, ACT, and AP/IB exams.
Where we meet: All of my appointments are conducted via Zoom. To my surprise, I discovered in 2020 that working one-on-one with students online worked as well as in-person meetings. The kids are digital natives, and meeting across screens is second nature to them. This medium also allows students to connect from a familiar environment, and parents appreciate the convenience of avoiding an extra round trip in Atlanta traffic. It also allows students to connect from out of state.
My hourly rate: $100
My education and experience: I hold a bachelor’s degree in English and a Master of Education from Georgia State University. I also served as the 504 Chair at a large public high school in North Atlanta where I developed accommodation plans for students who required additional support for their learning differences. In addition, I developed schoolwide programs providing targeted academic support for students struggling to succeed.
In my free time, I enjoy cooking, fishing, and always learning something new.
