Math Learning Specialist Teaches Strategies for "learning how to learn" math in Rochester, NY

Methodology

We teach kids how to learn soccer, baseball, etc. but we don't teach them how to learn math. As a professional math educator, I focus on having students verbalize their math thinking, using their strengths on which to build new understanding, and developing individualized strategies for being more effective math learners.

Experience

I created and facilitated a psychologically based math support program for college students over 20 years ago. I have also worked with middle school, high school and adult math students in both urban and suburban schools.
