A supportive approach to math success

You can learn from your mistakes.

The pressure is off! I'll help your child to relax and accept mistakes as a natural part of the learning process.

Math is creative!

Many students believe that solving a math problem is about using the one and only correct method. I'll teach your child that most problems have many possible paths to the solution.

imagination and intuition are part of problem solving.

Most math teaching in schools is focused on the hard facts of math. I’ll explore together with your child how they think about math: Do they use their visual imagination? Do they use words? I’ll help them develop “math sense”—using intuition to seek answers.
