All students can learn math
Math is creative and open
There is no one way to solve a problem
I offer math tutoring and homework help to students in Oakton, Vienna, South Riding, and the surrounding areas. Spending the last 6 years teaching math in a variety of environments has allowed me to see the big picture of math education. It is crucial to have a solid math foundation to build upon and number sense as a guide.
If your child is struggling in math – I can help. I teach math in a way that makes sense. Developing number sense and confidence are primary goals when I work with students.
Math is sequential, building on prior knowledge. Connections between concepts allow students to be creative when approaching new problems. Math becomes a web of tools with multiple access points to get started. Without these connections math is like climbing a ladder, students have missing rungs and cannot move on past their gaps in knowledge. Personalized instruction will fill in the gaps and foster the missing connections.
