After working as an educator with children with and without special needs for over seventeen years and watching them struggle to meet state and federal academic standards, I have developed a basic skills academic support program that "tailored" instruction to meet the student's needs. Our academic coaching services and basic skills tutoring instruction is designed to bridge the gap between the deficits of students and the standards they are expected to meet.  I can't count the number of times that I have experienced parents becoming frustrated with the various challenges of public/private/charter schools and desiring to educate their children at home. With parents not having the educational awareness needed to keep up with the changing pace of education and the breakdown in communication between home and school, their frustrations were understandable.  These frustrations and struggles birthed Exceptional Tutoring and Academic Coaching Services where parents can have a peace of mind that their child will be able to keep up academically without the fear of their child possibly being left behind.
