Who Do I Teach?

Children with diagnosed,  neurologically-based learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia.

I provide screening for all of these learning challenges.

I practice in Phoenix, AZ.


Need a part-time tutor to supplement school-based learning? Are your child's struggles behavioral in origin? I would be happy to refer you to specialists in these areas.
