  1. My 15 year old son had struggled with public school as well as a local alternative school. We felt like we were out of options…until he met Kristine from Symbiosis. He is now part of a dual enrollment program at Mass Bay working on his Associate Degree as well as Symbiosis where he will be working on his HS transcript. Symbiosis has given my son hope and self confidence after years of feeling like a failure.


  2. I am so grateful for finding you for my middle schooler! You need to let people know that you support all grade levels!!! When my daughter entered middle school, so many things changed. All of a sudden, she had a lot of different teachers, a lot more homework, plus dealing with the drama of being a teenager. She is a bright and intelligent young girl, so I was surprised and disappointed to see her struggling with so many aspects of her school work! She suddenly wasn’t doing her homework and she wasn’t getting good grades on her tests. This made her frustrated and upset. I reached out to her teachers, and tried to help her with her school work, but it always ended up being that she didn’t want my help, and promises that she would do better. Well, this was always short lived. Her grades would go up, but then they would start to slide. Her teachers told me that it wasn’t a problem with understanding the subject matter and that she didn’t need help with that. What she needed help with was discipline, focusing, and organization. I heard about Symbiosis Learning Center from a friend of mine whose son is a senior in college who has received support from them for time management and organization and I called them and asked if they could help. I spoke with the director who set my mind at ease right away. She took the time to really understand my frustration and needs and scheduled a learning coach to facetime with my daughter the next day. (She didn’t charge me for the first two sessions to be sure it was the right fit.) I am not exaggerating when I say that the turnaround was dramatic. This is someone who meets with her once a week for an hour, who knows in advance how all of her classes are going by looking at her grades on line, and who helps her plan out all of her work for the week. In addition to planning, she is also there for her and assists while she does her homework. We bought a simple planner and a calendar. Since then my daughter’s outlook on school has improved and her grades have literally gone up two levels. Her sessions with SLC have such a calming and reassuring effect on her because I think she really feels cared about. She now has a solid handle on her expectations for school. Thank you Symbiosis Learning Center!


  3. I had the great privilege to work closely with Kristine and Nancy for one year (from 2017-18) as a learning specialist in the Student Achievement Program (SAP) at Mount Ida College. As the director of SAP, Kristine was my supervisor. In my short time at Mount Ida, I was struck by and grateful for Kristine’s strong leadership, mentorship, and modeling of evidence-based interventions with students with learning challenges. Nancy, for her part, was a senior member of the SAP team, a wise, trusted mentor to me during my adjustment to Mount Ida, and an exceptional learning coach and advocate for her students.

    What sets Kristine apart are her leadership style, her compassion for her students, and her conviction to improve accessibility for students with learning challenges. Kristine’s wide-ranging experience in higher education accessibility services gives her the competencies and vision needed to work impactfully with students as they gain self-efficacy and develop confidence in themselves as strategic, self-sufficient learners. Under Kristine’s leadership, I routinely tapped into her skills and resourcefulness to strategize the most effective student-centered steps for improving students’ short- and long-term success. Kristine has a unique ability to simultaneously challenge and support her students, and to encourage them to find laughter and wisdom in every aspect of their education, even the most challenging ones.

    One of Nancy’s most resounding professional traits is the depth and breadth of her knowledge as a holistic academic learning coach. Nancy is extremely knowledgeable about learning disabilities, mental health conditions and how they impede learning, and effective interventions that foster both students’ short-term success and their long-term growth as intellectuals and self-advocates. In my work at Mount Ida, I aspired to match Nancy’s ability to systematically monitor and build her students’ academic capacities in a broad range of academic areas, including ones outside of Nancy’s own academic background.

    Nancy is a scholar who does exhaustive research to inform herself about learning differences and best-practice interventions. She treats her work as both a science and an art: she’s well-versed in the literature on learning and student development, but she’s also an expert at bringing her empathic personality to her work with students, relying on rapport to build students’ confidence and capacities. Armed with such a formidable blend of professional preparation and personal investment in her students, Nancy’s work is both highly effective and deeply meaningful for her students.

  5. If not for Kristine’s guidance and expertise my last years of school, it would have been difficult for me to get through my classes. She knows how to help students the right way and wants nothing but the most success for the people she works with.

  6. Nancy and Kristine were a huge help to my son when he started college. He is more confident and feels like a successful college student. Nancy eased his anxiety and helped with organization skills, study skills, and writing. Nancy is a great Learning and Life Coach and wonderful friend. My son is very fortunate to have met two caring, honest, and amazing women who care about young adults that need a little extra help or push to achieve their dreams. Thanks again for all you do!!!!!
