"For 7 years I have been tutoring students in English Language Arts and mathematics.

Initially I taught children with autism, helping them catch up academically. My interest grew from preparing after-school lessons for tutors to my son with autism over an 8-year period.

My practice has now broadened well beyond autism, cognitive disability and specific learning disabilities such as attention deficit and dyslexia. I can use my talents and methods to help mainstream students who are struggling in a subject to gain mastery of it as well as help interested students in pursuing excellence and/or enrichment.

As a tutor I employ a highly effective multi-sensory, strategic approach. With my students, I customize lessons to their interests and needs and to the expectations of their parents; rely on clear, engaging and memorable PC-generated visuals to supplement any text book or related academic materials; teach underlying concepts and strategic approaches for development of "sense" as well as skills; use the everyday to teach the abstract; and employ various methods to overcome learning hurdles.

For elementary students who need to catch up, my program offers English language arts (strong phonemic awareness, phonetic reading, simple and higher-level comprehension, spelling, vocabulary, grammar and composition) and mathematics (the 5 strands: numeric sense and operation, measurement, geometry, algebra and statistics) as well as logic, commonly termed "thinking skills.". The curriculum corresponds with that taught in Massachusetts public schools. Specific content is drawn from many excellent resources, both on-line and in texts.

Most of my hourly fee reflects my extensive preparation to ensure the customized lesson is the most engaging and effective that it can be.

Tutoring is typically conducted in my home in the western suburbs, just 5 minutes from 128, Rte. 9 and the Pike. I do, however, travel to a student's home, if needed.

I am available at specific times on weekends and after school.
