About You

When it comes to your child’s education, your child, no matter their age, has the courses and classes, but things aren’t working.

When it comes to schoolwork, your child is miserable–their excitement for learning has faded. There are moments when you just don’t know what to do, and there are other times when you feel completely overwhelmed, wondering how to move forward.

Although you have found some help on websites and in support groups, it’s not enough.

You need someone in your corner, someone who understands and can help you and your child make a plan that will work for you and your family.

I can help you and your child.

About Me

When it comes to education, I understand feeling overwhelmed and not knowing which way to turn.

Years ago, my daughter lost her love of learning and was on the road to becoming clinically depressed. When that happened, my focus shifted to helping her bring back that spark in her eye and the excitement she felt when learning something new.

It is difficult to watch this happen to your child, but so rewarding when that spark returns. Since then, I’ve helped countless children and their families find a joyful, peaceful, and fulfilling educational path.

Together, we can help your child too!
