FAQs


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

For students with a stronger foundation in math, I typically identify miunderstandings of material being covered in class, modeling solutions and re-teaching lessons when necessary to reinforce student understanding. When working with students experiencing greater difficulty or with a history of difficulty learning Math, I  like to determine the skills and concepts that are most troubling for the student,  and target those weaknesses to increase understanding and student performance  in addition to reviewing and addressing questions regarding content taught in class each week.
