It is her passion to help children build confidence and develop self-esteem along with remediating and solidifying the skills that are most challenging for your child. Whether they be academic, cognitive, social-emotional or self regulation skills, Greta helps each child learn HOW to learn; placing a significant emphasis on teaching each child to be mindful of each successful step taken through the long and often winding journey. Greta helps each child become a champion of learning, even when it is challenging and frustrating.
