Remediation & Intervention

Michelle provides one to one teaching in a supportive and nurturing environment.

All students are evaluated to access their unique needs and to develop a customized treatment plan. Students are evaluated three times per year to monitor progress. She will prescribe programs to meet the needs of the student to benefit their academic challenges. Michelle‚Äôs comprehensive approach incorporates Research-Based, structured and Multi-Sensory programs. She will collaborate with all members of the team and make referrals to allied professionals as needed. 

Multisensory: Learning that involves the processing of stimuli through two or more senses, such as visual (seeing), auditory (hearing), and/or kinesthetic (touching).

Some examples include writing in a sand tray, using movement to learn math facts, and tapping out sounds.

Testimonial

San Francisco Private School Teacher

I've known Michelle for three years, first meeting her at the elementary school where I worked and where she tutored one of the students. I actually heard about Michelle before meeting her, as the family she worked with could not sing enough of her praises, commenting that she is a "miracle-worker" and "the only one who could teach our son how to read." The family had expressed that they had tried every possible outlet - multiple teachers/specialists - but Michelle was the only one able to successfully teach their son to read and to bring him up to his grade level academically.

It was not until the next year that Michelle started to work directly with one of my students in my class. I cannot quite express adequately in words the level of impact Michelle's work had on my student's growth and ability, but it was like night and day. This student, who is dyslexic, suddenly was showing up to class with confidence, was raising her hand to volunteer to read aloud in class, was writing, was reading. It really was miraculous. That is the most fitting word to describe Michelle's work. Not only was this student now performing in a way that just months earlier seemed impossible, but the great impact it had on her self-esteem - a most important component of learning and academic success - was phenomenal and absolutely invaluable. I have the utmost respect and admiration for Michelle and her work. Every school needs a Michelle working closely with them. I cannot recommend her enough.
