When working with students, we utilize a strength-based approach, which considers each student’s unique learning profiles. Lessons are individually planned and built around the strengths, interests, talents, and experiences of learners.
Making a difference in the lives of students drives our work, and we are continually integrating research-based pedagogy into our practice.
We stay current in education research and best practices and this has led to pursuing specialized training using multi-sensory approaches to learning (Orton-Gillingham & Wilson Reading systems), as well as undergoing targeted training in executive functioning and behavior management.
Our students continue to inspire and fuel our own learning.
