Why Before How
With 30 years of tutoring and teaching experience, I have helped learners understand and begin to appreciate mathematics.
As a Montessori Teacher Trainer and K-12 Math Instructional Specialist (2007-2017), I helped teachers, students, and parents wrap their head around the WHY of a mathematical concept so that the HOW became easier and made more sense.
As a PK-12 ESE Coordinator, Graduation Coach, and Employment Specialist I helped teachers, students, and parents better understand accommodations, self-advocacy, and the importance of building a solid foundation of math fluency & a strong vocabulary.
Now I plan to focus my energy on helping families and learners either individually or in small group/homeschool settings.
