Professional Development For teachers

PD workshops help teachers transform their math classroom into a supportive and rigorous learning space. Content-focused workshops increase knowledge of math and strengthen teaching skills. All workshops emphasize how to foster an inclusive and compassionate math learning community.

Working with parents

What subtle or not-so-subtle messages are you sending to your children about studying math? How can you help make the best of your time at home (not just with homework). I can work with you privately or at your PTA meeting to provide tips on how to help your child achieve while not hating math.

One-on-one tutoring

I work one-on-one to help you overcome challenges with learning math and increase your grades. Meetings can occur remotely. I can work on a sliding scale based on your income. Emphasis is placed on deep understanding in a supportive environment.

in the workplace

In business numbers tell a story. Make sure you can play your part in it. After graduation and once in the workforce, you may now see that stronger math skills could help advance your career. I can work one-on-one or in a group to help strengthen the quantitative skills needed at work.
