Why select Dr. Lopez?

 

Dr. Christine Lopez is excited to welcome you and your family to her practice!  There are many educators who support students.  Why should you select Dr. Lopez?

Simply, she will put your child first.  Her focus-on-the-student approach guarantees that each student will make progress.  Dr. Lopez will meet with you to listen to your needs.  She will identify your child’s strengths and challenges.  Then, she will design a personalized program to meet your student’s needs.  No gimmicks.  No fixed sequence.  Just success.

In her over 20 years as an educator, Dr. Lopez has never used the one-size-fits-all approach. She excels at developing personalized programs to meet the needs of each and every student.  Her personalized pathways for reading and math mastery allow all students to succeed, often when they have not been successful in the past.

Having served as a Principal, District Supervisor, educator, librarian, child advocate and program developer, Dr. Lopez is well-versed in many areas of education.  She will not only know how to assist your child, but also what to recommend in your journey.

Beyond this private practice, Dr. Lopez also serves as an educational consultant with CH Lopez Educational Consulting and as the Director of Project Exceed.
