What I Provide

I have been involved in the educational arena for over 30 years as a teacher, consultant, writer, tutor and academic coach. I have extensive experience working with high school and post-secondary school students who have ADD/ADHD and learning disabilities as well as gifted students who need to improve their executive functioning skills and study strategies. My coaching services are especially helpful for students studying via online courses. I provide a customized program that not only addresses the students’ individual learning needs, but also supports the growth of their self-esteem, confidence and motivation. My services, in particular, help those students making the transition to the next stage of education.

An underlying goal of academic coaching is to help students gain a greater awareness of their competencies in order to achieve their desired learning outcomes. Students are encouraged to take risks and challenge themselves, reflect and conduct ongoing self-evaluation and take responsibility for their goals. My aim is to facilitate the building of these capacities so that students acquire the attitude, skills and knowledge that will better equip them for success in scholastic as well as vocational or personal endeavours.
