Listen to the MUSTN’TS, child.
Listen to the DON’TS
Listen to the SHOULDN’TS
The IMPOSSIBLES, the WON’TS
Listen to the NEVER HAVES
Then listen close to me-
Anything can happen, child,
ANYTHING can be.
– Shel Silverstein
If a child can’t learn the way we teach,
maybe we should teach the way they learn.
– Ignacio ‘Nacho’ Estrada
All aspects of my teaching incorporate thinking strategies so that children can approach learning in a systematic way and become confident learners. Developing relationships with parents and working as a team to help each child succeed is an important part of my teaching and tutoring.

Individual tutoring in my home for children ages 5-14. Please contact me. I am available to tutor children during the day at private schools.
Thinking Strategies Camp
Thinking Camps are designed for small groups of children in grades pre-school through fifth grade. Thinking Camps give children an opportunity to learn thinking strategies during the summer. We do a variety of fun hands-on science, math, and language arts activities while learning thinking strategies. By learning cognitive building blocks and tools (thinking strategies), your child will learn how to think in an efficient way. For example, your children will learn how to approach a task in an organized way, use selective attention and focus on important information, use self-regulation, and have a feeling of
competence. Please see information sheet and registration form for more details.
Thinking Strategies Tutoring
Individual tutoring for children ages 5-14. This type of tutoring is great for all children, but especially helpful with children who have ADD or ADHD and need to learn thinking strategies to help them be independent and successful learners.
