Hello! I'm a patient, persistent teacher and academic coach with lots of experience working with middle and high school students to improve writing skills, executive functioning and organization, homework planning, and more. I'm currently scheduling for the fall semester.

Teenagers are awesome, and I'm here to help them navigate schoolwork and reduce overwhelm and frustration. Lab reports, college essays, French, Spanish, any kind of academic reading and writing - all in my toolbox. I've been a teacher and school administrator for 25+ years and understand the challenges of kids with learning differences (aka superpowers), ADHD, anxiety, school refusal. I can work online or in person where you live in the East Bay area, and 1:1 or small groups - happy to speak with homeschool families about how I can help too.

Visit my website - www.firelighteducation.com to read more about me and my work - and fill out my contact form (or contact me here) if you'd like to schedule a free phone or Zoom consultation to see if my services are what you're looking for. I'm eager to meet you!
