FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First I find out when the student started finding math difficult so I can anticipate where they may need the most help. Then we will complete a short diagnostic just to see where their understanding falls short. We will then work on the most basic skill necessary for them to be at their math grade level.
