Philosophy

Ms. Tingle believes in the importance of incorporating families, friends, significant others, teachers and others in the community in her approach to assessment. She provides a friendly and encouraging atmosphere that promotes individuals' ability to do their best during testing and assessment sessions.  Ms. Tingle is fascinated by the ways in which different assessment measures reveal the elements of an individual's learning style and inform educational and life strategies to help children, adolescents and adults attain success and improve their self-esteem and outlook on life. With a background assisting special education students in the public schools, Ms. Tingle recognizes the importance of comprehensive assessment of learning styles.  In addition to assessment, Ms. Tingle believes strongly in the connection between mental and physical health and the importance each play in creating a balanced and productive life. Ms. Tingle strives to provide quality and customized assessment services under the direction of Dr. Samantha Scott.
