About Just Mirjam

A distinguished name in educational assessment and perceptual testing, Just Mirjam reaches out to those who need to assess how their child is doing compared to their peers.  Testing takes place in Anne Arundel and Frederick Counties, or areas within 30 miles of Severna Park.  For a slightly lower price, you may choose to come to the home office in Severna Park.

  Mission Statement

Your child is my client and I am committed to using the experience and expertise to help in understanding the abilities and learning styles of each individual client.  I love working with children and am passionate about my work.


Before you enroll your child in a tutoring program, consider special services, or begin home schooling, first let me help you answer the following questions.  Where is your child academically?  Does your child have perceptual problems that can be solved by compensatory techniques?  Which goals are most important at this time? Let me help you decide where to begin your next step.
