A NOTE FROM KRISTEN:
I remember struggling in 8th grade due to the fact that I had no idea how to study! Every time my teacher would say we were going to have a test, anxiety went through the roof. All I knew was I wanted to make As; however, I had no idea how to prepare. Read more about this journey here: BLOG.
Children should not feel overhwelmed, frustrated, and tearful with school. If you are seeing those, they are warning signs that your child is needing some outside help. There are key strategies and skills that can be learned to avoid these feelings. I'm here to help and it would be my pleasure to equip your child(ren) with these necessary skills!
I would love to hear from you, and I am confident that I can help!
