Tutoring: Language-Based Learning Disabilities/Autism/ADHD Kids who just need some extra help

I have a masters degree from GWU in Special Education/Language disabilities and over 35 years experience working with children who have difficulty learning. I specialize in language-based learning disabilities and autism, but also work with students who do not have special needs but would benefit from extra help with homework, organization and study skills.
I am also an excellent diagnostician and can figure out why a child has problems learning, and
remediate the underlying causes of a child’s problems.

Skill areas include: auditory memory/discrimination/sequencing,
visual memory/discrimination/sequencing
fine-motor/keyboarding/visual memory-motor skills/handwriting/cursive
reading (phonics, phonics, structural analysis, comprehension, reasoning
written language
elementary math/basic Algebra
Excellent references! (One reference is a parent whose son attends a program at the school.)
Please contact (240) 603-6538 if you’d like to discuss your child with me.
