Sensory Based Tutoring
Research tell us that each child learns differently, and this is particularly relevant for children with sensory issues, and misophonia. By working with children and families to create learning environments for after-school tutoring that help students stay calm and alert, we can ease the learning process, and the discord that surrounds "homework time." Ideally, this leads children to better enjoy learning, while gaining the knowledge they need to succeed. See below for tutors.
Madeline Brout serves as a sensory-based tutor for JJB Counseling and Consultation. She uses sensory techniques to create the optimal learning environment for each child, and is able to work with kids K-12 in all subject areas. Having grown up with a triplet sister who suffers from misophonia, and spending the last two years working in a school setting, Maddy is uniquely qualified for this work. Maddy is a graduate of New York University, and will begin attending law school in Fall, 2018.
Maddy Appelbaum fills multiple roles at JJB Counseling and Consultation, including serving as a sensory-based tutor. She has extensive experience tutoring one-on-one, as well as working in a classroom setting, with youth from Kindergarten to college. Through her work on misophonia, she has come to understand the importance of integrating self-regulation, through sensory strategies, into the learning process. Maddy is a graduate of Reed College, with a degree in psychology. She wrote her undergraduate thesis on differing types of academic motivation, and learning.
