One year ago, when we took our son, a very bright young man, but someone who has struggled with basic time management skills, to see Dr. K for the first time, my husband and I knew that we absolutely made the right choice in helping our son, T, to work on building fundamental skills essential for his future in school and far beyond.
We love Dr. K’s methodical and systematic approach in teaching T in order to gradually build up these time management skills from scratch. Unlike the conventional time management approach for kids described in many such books, Dr. K first built a strong connection, a substantial trust and friendship with T. T has told his parents on many occasions how enjoyable it is to share and discuss everything with his beloved Dr. K. This relationship became the very foundation for Dr. K to effectively teach T time management and for T to begin to internalize what he has learned from Dr. K.
An extremely seasoned educator with knowledge and experience in teaching thousands of students across some 20 years, Dr. K has tailored her methodology in guiding T and parents through the several phases of learning via effective communication. T began his journey with Dr. K through small steps of learning with clearly defined SMART goals for him to aim for. T practices time management skills on a daily basis ranging from daily planning to help tours for the family. Dr. K committed to not only checking T’s daily progress but also discussing the status and her strategy with us to tailor it to our home environment to further motivate and facilitate T’s learning.
The value in Dr. K’s teaching extends far beyond just time management. She, for example, drills down to the root cause for the topic or issue at hand based upon her keen observation, follow by coaching the parents on how handle specific behaviors and frustrations. The strong bond and trust fostered by Dr. K with the parents created synergy for T’s learning both in her class and at home. As a result, T thrived this year both in his academics and his increased maturity. He is now a motivated, happy and academically successful teenager. We would like to highly recommend Dr. K for the kids as well as for the family as a whole. As a great educator equipped with tremendous knowledge, experience, and dedication, as well as great integrity, kindness and a sense of humor, Dr. K brings happiness to our life.
Thank you Dr. K, from the bottom of our hearts!
