I have been an educational therapist for many years, tutoring reading, writing, and mathematics to students with learning disabilities, including dyslexia and ADHD. Many of my students are both intellectually gifted and have a learning disability. I have a Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Michigan. I have taught college courses in psychology and organizational behavior, and recently received a Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of Northern Colorado. I enjoy working with students of all ages and backgrounds.

My tutoring style emphasizes identifying and building upon student strengths, adapting my methods and explanations to best meet the needs of individual students. I enjoy helping students develop specific skills and meet their immediate goals, but I love helping students experience joy in learning.
