THERE IS NO NEED FOR SHAME

The problem is not laziness.

School standardization leads many to believe that everyone learns the same way, but we don’t.

Nonstandard learners work hard, yet their effort rarely pays off.

The frustration is real.

You’ve done what you thought would work and it hasn’t.

All the struggle and tears have not given you the outcomes you need.

I CAN HELP

I know there is hope because I am a nonstandard learner myself. Being labeled with dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, and ADHD set me on a quest to understand how the brain learns.

What I discovered transformed me and provided strategies that have proven effective for those I’ve taught and coached.

I put my BS in Elementary Education and MA in Counseling to use in both school and homeschool settings. For decades I’ve trained teachers and homeschooling parents.

In 2015, I began Learning Lifeguard, an educational ministry that provides trauma-informed tailored solutions to help nonstandard learners thrive.

Testimonials

Testimonials

"My son was falling behind after months of e-learning. I was not equipped with the skills or patience to teach. We have seen a huge improvement in his writing and reading, and maybe more importantly, his confidence. We are so pleased with his progress. We couldn’t be more grateful for Esther." ~L.H.

"As an adult, I had been told my whole life that I was nothing more than a “cut-up” in the classroom; a waste of potential.  In my thirties that changed when God used Esther to help me understand that I am a lifelong learner and had a relevant place in life… even academic life.  As an atypical learner, I have processing struggles.  Esther showed me how to learn.  Then, she convinced me that I am a reader and a writer.  These are two words that my teachers would have agreed that I would never become. Now I am an educator, trainer, and learning coach who teaches teachers how to better teach." ~C.C.

“My husband and I contracted with Esther as a learning coach for our children, (then 4th and 5th grade) after pulling them out of our local public school after the first quarter. It had become clear over a period of testing and evaluation, that one of our children was a “nonstandard learner,” processing and learning differently from the “norm.” . . . After a little less than a school year’s time, both children were well into their grade levels in both reading and math. Esther was a Godsend to our family at a time of great frustration and uncertainty. Not only did our children greatly benefit from her services, but I came away with greater confidence and knowledge in how to be a better homeschool parent. I would strongly recommend Esther as an excellent coach, role model, tutor, and advisor in the homeschool arena.” ~K.R. 

“Esther was able to pinpoint some key areas where my son needed help such as balance, coordination, pencil grip, and visual focus. She provided exercises that strengthened his skills. My son was able to learn over time how to relax the muscles in his arms and hands. Now he seems so much more comfortable and confident holding a pencil, and he has way more endurance to draw a picture or write letters than he did before. My son has learned how to catch a ball without closing his eyes because he has learned to focus on it. It is truly incredible to see how far he has come! I can tell Miss Esther truly loves the children she works with and gives 100% to provide kids with the tools they need to succeed.” ~L.R.
