I am a Board Certified special education advocate. I facilitate the identification of unique educational needs & the development of individualized goals, services & programs, for an educational plan, necessary to achieve documented meaningful benefit and progress. This is done by: 1) a formal review of educational and clinical documentation to identify strengths and educationally based needs, 2) meeting with parents to obtain additional information and, if necessary, refer for appropriate evaluations either through the school district or independently, 3) attendance at IEP meetings with parents to facilitate development of an appropriate individualized educational plan (IEP) and to assist parents with procedural issues and navigation through the process, 4) assure that parents have a voice, act as a liaison and assist in ongoing documentation, 5) monitor IEP compliance and student progress, 6) assist in manifestation determination meetings, filing department of education complaints and parent's attorney in due process.

Sherry has been my tutor for the past month. She is a very knowledgeable tutor. She taught me a lot about American culture and history. She is very creative in her teaching program and always uses exciting ideas in teaching English, such as asking me to read a novel and magazines, writing some papers, listening to the radio, shopping together and visiting museum. I really enjoyed having her as my tutor.

I have been working with Sherry since April. We meet each other at a cafe and library. She always motivates me and makes me get confidence with English. And she is sometimes like my mom and sometimes my friend. Everytime I look forward to seeing her and hope this message will be helpful for the students who look for a great tutor.
