Contact me for: I help gifted students develop to their true potential through one-on-one instruction and specialized strategies. I work with neurotypical gifted students every day. I also work with twice-exceptional gifted students where I offer educational therapy strategies to develop their executive function deficits. Gifted children can be prone to impulsiveness, disorganization, overexcitability, anxiety and perfectionism. I develop curriculum, program and strategies around the individual needs of each child who comes to see me. My work centers around developing relationships with each of my children to know how to lift them to their full potential.
