Math Is Manageable
***With the recent covid challenges, I have successfully established one-on-one internet sessions to help a college student finish both programming and web development classes, receiving an A in both classes
Math taught in your language. I focus on the language and directions given, helping students understand by allowing them to read directions.
I enjoy helping. I enjoy the beauty of mathematics. I enjoy geometry in the world. I see both everyday. I enjoy seeing students develop their understanding.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?
The first step is to discuss the goals of the student. Next is to discover all the things the student knows. Then build a house of knowledge starting from what a student knows

What types of students have you worked with?
My students range from 7th grade to college.
