Miranda’s professional experience includes work for over twenty-four years, privately and in public schools, with students who face learning challenges. Beginning her tutoring business in 2010, she focused on primary grade learners struggling to acquire the crucial skills of reading writing and math concepts. Students, many older, came to her with an array of learning disabilities—ADHD, high functioning Down syndrome, autism, severe sensory and behavioral problems —-and Miranda realized she needed to undertake more specialized study. In 2016 she completed certification requirements and opened her Educational Therapy Practice while continuing further university preparation in Special Education for Mild to Moderate Disabilities.
Miranda has seven years of experience collaborating with specialists in early childhood development, speech and language, occupational and behavioral therapy throughout the North Bay. She integrates game-based learning, sensory tools and metacognitive techniques with her students. She was especially fortunate to work alongside the expert staff at Full Circle Learning, a private program in Corte Madera. Mentored by these talented specialists, Miranda taught students who struggled with language processing challenges. Today, her work as a Resource Specialist has given her further experience in planning and implementing a K-5 public school resource program, including testing, IEP collaboration and delivery, individualized instruction and teacher in- service.
Miranda helped transform our son with ADHD from dreading to reading and from whining to writing. She has amassed a great collection of mind-body techniques and organizational tools for kids.
Miranda customized an incredible program for our son, keeping him engaged with learning while he took a break from traditional school. We feel so lucky to have found Miranda, and even luckier that our son got to work with her.
We can’t thank Miranda enough for helping our son. Miranda customized a learning program and worked with other specialists to ensure that our son continued to learn while taking a break from traditional school.
