Helping Those with a Neurodifference Enjoy Learning Again:Group Tutoring, Parent Courses, & Freebies

Understanding the impact that a negative social environment has on those who have learning differences, or as I prefer to say “neurodifferent”, ELBERT is a program that employs a positive attitude and positive environment towards learning for those who have difficulty with learning. Instead of allowing shame and anger to overwhelm the learner, I focus on bringing in positive emotions and teaching methods that help the learner with their learning difference. 


Common Questions:

Whom do you serve? Children and adults with a variety of learning differences such as dyslexia, auditory processing disorder, dyscalculia, nonverbal learning disabilities, visual processing disorder, sensory processing issues, ADHD, slow-speed processing; basically, anyone who thinks and learns differently!
