Courtney Meiers, Ed.S., M.S.
Mindfulness Tutor
Kid Coach
Education Specialist
School Psychologist

Guiding kids to their highest potential through forming and reaching goals, teaching them about their brains and tailoring study skills, and improving grades and self-esteem at the same time.

Services Offered (Via Zoom or In-Person):

-Coaching: Goal-setting, long/short-term. Building Confidence. Building Independence
-Tutoring: Academic subject help. I tutor all academic subjects. It is not whether I am an expert in the subject, it's my ability to teach the concepts and how to store the information in each child's unique brain using their unique learning style.
-Academic Tracking: Shared document that tracks goals, grades, work completion, and upcoming tests/quizzes
-Executive Functioning Practice: Creating specialized systems for organization skills, punctuality, and social skills.
-Study Skills: Explicit instruction on how to prepare for tests and quizzes (standard and non-standardized test; i.e. State tests, ACT/SAT, etc.)
-Test Prep with individualized learning techniques: using your child’s unique learning, I teach them how to put information in their brain and store it from their short-term memory to their long-term memory and how to combat and curb test anxiety!
-College-bound Prep: Does your child want to go to college but just doesn’t have a clue where, how to prepare, or what they would even want to study when they get there? I can help…I have guided students all the way through graduate school PAID FOR via scholarships. Everything from resumes, personal statements, to ACT/SAT test prep, I get your kid into college with all the possible financial assistance out there.

*All strategies look at the whole picture of the child, exploring all areas of the child including their friendships, self-esteem, and their individuality.

About me:
I am a passionate and intuitive educator and psychologist with 10 years of experience teaching, tutoring, and guiding children to their highest potential. After I obtained my B.S. in Psychology from the University of Arizona, I began teaching high school English and obtained my Post-Baccalaureate in secondary English education. I saw the individual needs of students that were falling through the cracks, and I went on to study at San Diego State University in the School Psychology program. In this complex and thorough dual master's degree program, I obtained my Master’s in Counseling as well as an Education Specialist degree. I currently work as a school psychologist full-time in Redwood City, CA and coach and tutor children after school hours. I use a variety of methods to assess your child's learning style, goals and dreams, personalities, and I design and tailor unique tutoring/coaching sessions to guide them to the best they can be. Through goal-setting, grade tracking, tutoring, a prospective shifting, cognitive exercises, creating systems, and more, I am able to access your child's highest potential, improve their grades, motivate them, and ultimately leave them with study skills and sense of self-reliance and self-adequacy that will stay with them the rest of their life.
