"I'm not quite sure how Deepa works her magic. Her resourceful and creative engagement with my bright and squirrelly son verges on miraculous. She goes out of her way to engage him, from researching books he likes to help him understand character development to becoming expert in the nuances of his various interests. She weaves skill building seamlessly into their time together, whether she is coaching executive functions or building on his ability to express himself through writing, presentations or supporting school assigned work. She brings her experience, kindness and insight to engaging the whole child with compassion, humor and grace. Since working with Deepa, I have noticed an increase in organizational thinking and that has shown up in academic and non-academic settings. He feels less intimidated by school assignments. We are grateful to Deepa for her positive, encouraging voice in our son's world. Her skillful guidance has helped him gain confidence and the ability to express himself and his capabilities with more ease and skill."

"Deepa has been so helpful with my boys. She has a razor sharp eye for my children's unique academic needs, not wasting any time getting to work on teaching skills to help close their academic gaps. Deepa's warm presence allowed my kids to feel really comfortable taking risks in what they are aware is hard for them. One of my children said it best, 'Mom, Mrs. Deepa is helpful, really helpful.' I'm so grateful to have found an academic resource that both my children AND I value!"
