The ultimate goal is to provide the framework for students to be able to manage their learning independently. Using current curriculum and assignments, we work together to develop systems and processes to help students develop stronger skills in organization, planning, and goal settings, as well as task initiation and progress monitoring. In so doing, we are able to make progress with the student’s curriculum and hone their executive functions.
Additionally, Andrew works as a Latin tutor, providing extra-curricular support and enrichment to students currently enrolled in a Latin program at school or who wish to learn Latin on their own. Andrew has a keen interest in health and wellness and is very interested in developing yoga and meditation practices for children.
