  What does Mike do?

I help students overcome academic struggles by focusing on ways each student's strengths can be effectively applied to each struggle. Understanding success as the key to motivation, the student and I systematically identify and celebrate each achievement as we break difficult tasks into manageable chunks for learning success.

  What Subjects?

Language Arts — All aspects, all ages. I delight in helping a struggling writer organize ideas and find her/his voice. With reading, we work to break information down into comprehensible chunks, which we then systematically learn to process, analyze, retain, and retrieve. I am trained in multi-sensory language instruction—simultaneously activating visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning to maximize understanding and retention.

Mathematics — All aspects, Kindergarten through 9th grade. I am trained in Making Math Real techniques for multi-sensory mathematics, but I use only what actually works for each individual student.

Study Skills — Note-taking, reading for information, test preparation, organizational skills. I help students explore various organizational and study methods until they find the tools that best suit them.
