    I have taken Jodi’s course and found it to be exactly the training necessay to help those students who struggle with disorganization, priority setting and distraction issues. As a retired teacher I was tutoring kids with ADHD and learning disabilities in the Toronto area. I could get these students back to grade level but there was nothing in place to hold their improvements. Coaching is the the answer. Since completing Jodi’s coaching training I have been able to support the students in the areas that will sustain their academic gains.
    As a leader Jodi is orgainized, knowledgeable and able to cut through verbal clutter to articulate the core issues. If you are considering taking a course with Jodi your time will be rewarded.
