We first start off with math concepts that students are familiar with, and we slowly add concepts and skills. The review establishes and reinforces confidence both in what the student knows and what he or she is willing to tackle.
I have a master's degree in elementary education and love teaching math skills in out of the box ways. I have been teaching math to students for over ten years both in a teaching and tutoring capacity. I have also been trained in teaching multi-sensory math for students with processing issues and dyscalculia.
