Stressed Out Over Homework?

In many families, parents have taken on the role of Homework Police in order to get their kids to do two things – focus and finish. It’s a role neither parents nor kids want. But if you learn who your child is as a learner, you can throw that role aside. Whether you’re the parent of a student who’s bright but disorganized, one who is struggling in certain subjects or is feeling overwhelmed and anxious, you’ll find practical solutions here.

Learn More in Less Time

84% of students study by rereading which is the most inefficient way to learn and retrieve information. There’s a better way. Learn how students can leverage their study time by studying in a multi-sensory way to retain more information and boost test scores.

A Guide to Private Schools

The Washington DC, Northern Virginia, and Maryland Edition

A Guide to Private SchoolsI am thrilled to present my second book, A Guide to Private Schools: The Washington DC, Northern Virginia, and Maryland Edition, focused on helping parents select the right private school in the area for their child. My key goal is to arm parents with information to help them make the right choices for their children, while weighing the critical and timely issues of application processes, competition, and financial commitments.

I hope all parents considering an independent education for their child in the DC metro area will take the time to read this book!
