I love students of all shapes and sizes! I love shepherding students through the process of writing an essay, understanding the Pythagorean Theorem, or studying for a biology test. I love helping students with ADHD and/or executive function disorder to make a homework plan, break their work into manageable chunks, and GET IT DONE with a minimum of stress. I love helping college students with anxiety, ASD, ADHD, or LD figure out how to fit all the many pieces of their lives together - from d...
Deirdre worked well with my son and motivated him to work on his own. She even sent me a detailed message on her time with him and her thoughts. She was great! Thanks

Excellent academic coach and learning support specialist for our college freshman son. Deirdre's patience and encouragement have made immediate changes in our son's lack of commitment to study and study skills. She connected immediately with him and meticulously reviewed his schedule. We are seeing positive changes.

It was the initial meeting with her for my son. Since it was the first meeting, I talked mostly with her discussing about my son?s current issues with his school work/grade and organization skill in general. She was living far from our place, but she was still willing to come to help him. She was very knowledgeable and kind.

We just had our 1st class and hope more to come. Deirdre is very passionate about kids' issues and she has a very positive and workable view on ADHD issues. My daughter was all smiles after Deirdre left. Deirdre had to drive quite a long way to get to our place on a extremely cold morning. We definitely would like to work out more classes with flexible arrangement out of her schedule.

Deirdre helped my son write his college essays, including all of those short answer questions. My son has a lot of trouble putting his thoughts on a page, and somehow Deirdre teased a really good essay out of him. She put a lot of thought into what the schools were looking for. She was really flexible about meeting times and places?she often met my son at a library that was much closer to our house than hers?and they also had a few online sessions. I highly recommend her. She did an outstanding job.

Deirdre was very open to gaining an understanding of my daughter's struggle with time management. Developed a plan to help my high school daughter evaluate and refocus, so she learns to understand how to identify critical information vs. wrapping herself up with non-important tasks and information. Excited to see the longterm outcome!

Deirdre and I sat down and discussed what colleges I am applying to, GPA, and test scores. Deirdre brought in college essays that have worked so that I understand what paths I can take to write a successful paper. She did an amazing job helping me outline my college essay as well as giving me positive feedback. She is very patient and made my first session an enjoyable one so I am looking forward to many more.

Deirdre has been a godsend. She understands my son's learning style, and works patiently with him while he complete his assignments.
