For over 30 years, Dr. Odey Raviv, an Academic Coach, has helped students struggling with academic challenges….particularly those who learn differently.
With individualized skills, tools and strategies, students feel empowered to deal with with their Learning Differences, ADHD, Executive Functioning Deficits, Low Academic Self Esteem, Test Anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and even Poor Motivation. He is able to address a wide array of subjects including Reading Comprehension and Fluency, Written Expression, Problem Solving, Study Skills, Time Management, and Standardized Test Preparation. He is patient, supportive and inspiring. He has even been referred to as the “SAT Whisperer.” He is particularly adept at helping high school students transition to college and succeed with the heightened coursework and organizational demands that come when they are in college. He is available to work nationwide via Skype and FaceTime.
I hired Dr. Raviv to work with my son who needed re-focusing to achieve his goals, both academically and in terms of his college’s Division 1 football program. He was a freshman at a top school and fractured his ankle just prior to football season. Due to surgery and months on crutches, he was not able to play football or pursue other activities he planned. His academics were suffering, and we thought assistance from an individual experienced in dealing with collegiate academic issues could make a difference. Dr. Raviv provided the extra jumpstart he needed, allowing him to thrive academically and as a starter on his league-championship team. Now several years post graduation, he is well-employed and leads an enjoyable, productive life. Dr. Raviv helped steer him toward that path.

Dr. Raviv is wonderful with our son. He's patient and wise and understands that some kids learn differently. Keeping in mind what works for specific students, given their unique challenges, he comes up with strategies they can put into action, whether as study guides, prepping for long term assignments, getting homework done in a timely, organized fashion, etc. He has a comfortable rapport with our son, and is great at keeping us in the loop with regard to their progress and any concerns. He truly cares, and he feels like a welcome family friend..

My son has worked with Dr. Raviv for over 6 years, and I am so grateful for his services. Beginning in high school and throughout his challenging college experience, Dr. Raviv has remained patient, positive and kind regardless of how noncompliant my son can be. Dr. Raviv offered invaluable support when others gave up and always remained hopeful. Assisting with writing and study skills has led to lifelong support with organizational and executive functioning. Dr. Raviv helped my son thrive as a student and person who now has greater self-esteem.
