First lesson. Awesome to work with. Very patient and understands his subject of expertise thoroughly. I had previously tried to start on my own without knowing anything and every time he ran into something that surprised him he was able to quickly diagnose, explain, and lead me to the solution. And I had done some weird stuff apparently. Very impressed so far. Cool guy.

These Psychology lessons are mostly focused on how to communicate, build confidence, and reduce anxiety.
Many of the principles taught will focus on how to engage in healthy conversations and read social cues.
Psychology will back up principles taught.
Elementary and middle school psychology focuses on developmental stages of school- aged children, and what their patterns of behavior could indicate. Please send specific goals to the instructor before signing up for this course to make sure this is the right fit for you.
*Disclaimer*
Lessons and insight are based on studies conducted and reported, but please realize that there are many variables that contribute to a person’s psyche, and if conclusions of student’s goals are not reached, psychologist, counseling, or even psychiatric services are recommended.

I was a little hesitant in my first class as I am trying to learn it at older age but Panagiota was very friendly and made sure that the environment is comfortable for both of us. I had the first lesson and I would say it was good but too early to conclude the overall experience. I would prefer to provide meaningful feedback at the end of my sessions so that it will be informative and helpful for others. Thanks
