Beyond Tutoring

A guide for parents who want REAL answers to their

Child’s Academic Struggles

Understand your child’s educational problems to identify the issues and seek the necessary support to ensure your child’s academic success.

As an educator and writer of the book, “Beyond Tutoring,”  I’ve shared a deeply personal and insightful exploration of the complexities of children facing academic challenges.

This book offers guidance for parents to understand their child’s issues and get the appropriate help to find the right solution. Whether your child has a diagnosed learning disability or faces undiagnosed struggles, this book is written to illuminate the path forward. I have written this book based on my personal experience as well as my many years of expertise. This book discusses the reasons behind academic struggles, explores the emotional impact on your child, and offers guidance on what can be the right help for your child’s needs.

My unique approach challenges the conventional tutoring model. I advocate for understanding the root cause of academic challenges, providing a roadmap for parents to engage actively in their child’s learning journey. It reveals the struggles of dyslexia and cognitive processing challenges, of which there are several. I have shared personal stories, insights, and effective strategies that have evolved over my 29 years of experience.
