Subject Area Tutoring & Enrichment
Lindsey has the experience and skills necessary to help your child with any subject in which they need support or could use an additional challenge. She will develop lessons tailored to your child's individual needs in the areas of mathematics, reading, writing, science, social studies and more. Lindsey is Orton-Gillingham trained and special education certified.
Lindsey will help your child build confidence and prepare for any upcoming tests including NYC Gifted & Talented (OLSAT + NNAT2), ELA & Math NYS tests. She not only reviews practice tests but also helps students develop test-taking skills.
Lindsey specializes in supporting children with their executive functioning skills. These skills are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and multi-task. Children are not born with these skills—they are born with the potential to develop them.
Lindsey helps teach students how to organize, plan, manage time, maintain focus, self-assess, and study efficiently.
