I formed EdPath to help families customize the services of their public school system in a way that will best serve their children. Without knowledge of their child’s rights or even the options available, parents, and more importantly, their students are often tragically disadvantaged.
The mission of EdPath is to level the playing field for students. Simply stated, we realistically advise families who believe their child’s needs are not being met. This includes understanding, managing, and explaining a child’s IEP; being an impartial liaison between the student and the school; and/or individualized ACT/SAT test preparation.
People don’t work with me to increase their subject matter knowledge, although we do provide tutoring to those who need it. Families come to me for help navigating the business of school. I’ve developed analytics that help me identify where the opportunities are to improve your student’s academic footprint. Most importantly, I only work with students willing to put in serious time.
