I am a certified special education teacher (LBS 1) and have worked with Aspergers students in my classes and private tutoring.
I have recently finished a certificate in health care which required several college level biology courses. I have also successfully tutored several students in high school biology, both regular and Honors.
Do you need help finding a college, applying to college, or taking those entrance exams? I have been working in college admissions for an East Coast college over thirty years and have just completed the process with my own child with ADHD and Learning Disabilities.

I would like to share my expertise with you and/or your college bound student.
