Whether is question or issue about you, your kids, friends, other family members in any point of losing a direction of their progress in career, education, some research project or just not getting the right answer. Let us find these directions for you.
Getting to know you
In my one-on-one work with students and families, I specialize in getting to know the student from a personal, child-centered perspective, building the trust necessary to develop a meaningful working relationship.
From there I work to discover the student’s motivators, goals, wishes, and dreams, as well as his or her academic strengths and challenges. Once we have developed rapport and had some direction, we can set tangible goals and work together to achieve them.
Not every personality type is suited for every kind of education and work. With discovering together person’s special skills and characteristics, better productivity will be made. Also, self-fulfillment in activity person will spend maybe the rest of their life is priceless.
I believe that parents are an integral part of every child’s educational progress and success. Parents are greatly valued in my work with students and contribute meaningfully to goal-setting, helping motivate the child, and giving us all direction and focus.
One Size Does Not Fit All
As the infants begin to interact with the world, we see their personality, with which they are born, emerging. Some are more confident, some more assertive and some outgoing and so on. Fact is each type needs a special way of nurturing and directing.
It is typical in my experience for parents and students to be frustrated by the “one size fits all” mentality that they find in their schools – one course of study; one way of teaching; one expected learning style; and one type of student product that is valued and rewarded. One alternative some families choose is to home-school their children – a great decision, but one that is also laden with complexities and challenges. When I work with families and students, it is to create a UNIQUE learning situation that will benefit the individual student best. Once we create that solution, we can work to make that solution fit into the school’s and state’s expectations. I am your educational advocate; I work to help you and your child navigate the waters of whatever school or school system you choose.
