I love helping students feel more confident with their school work by teaching strategies to learn new material and concepts more efficiently. It is essential for students to understand their learning style, and find personalized ways to break down the meaning of math word problems or new information.

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

I begin a tutoring session by discussing the student’s current lesson at school, to determine strengths, weaknesses and or concerns. Once we’ve established a content goal, I review the necessary vocabulary, teach a mini lesson on the math topic, do a sample problem together with the student, then allow them time to practice independently. If needed, we can take a “brain break” and work on a fun, math related game or skill builder, then go back to reviewing useful, preferred strategies for breaking down a word problem into a diagram, chart or list of steps that lead to an accurate solution.
