I assist students in developing the academic skills needed to be successful in school. I teach classroom and small group lessons focused on organization, time management, test taking, and study skills. I also schedule student courses.

Career/Post-Secondary prep

I work with students to develop an Educational Development Plan through which they explore careers, colleges, and other post-secondary options.
