I will be gone for a few days in March and will NOT be tutoring Wednesday, March 11.  Please update your calendar. 

And please let me know if you make plans to travel or take days off for a Winter or Spring Break.  I'll update mine.  📅 😊

Thank you! 

I have updated the calendar on my website with upcoming dates for which there will be no tutoring sessions.  

  • August 28-September 6          End of Summer Break
  • October 16th                             MEA Break
  • November 6-8                           International Dyslexia Conference
