Often people think they are “just bad at math” or that math is too hard when they run into difficulties with Algebra, Trigonometry, or Calculus. But these problems actually began way back in elementary school. In order to be successful in higher level math students must have mastered the basics: fractions, decimals, percents, negative numbers, etc. I take the mystery out of math by helping students understand HOW numbers work and WHY they work that way. For four decades I have been teaching the skills students need to excel – working with them to develop their abilities and build their confidence. From establishing a solid foundation during elementary school, going back to the basics, or getting support to understand the more complex theories in higher level math I can help you achieve your goals, whether you’re a math whiz or math phobic.
Based in Davis, California, I welcome students from across the Yolo, Solano, and Sacramento county areas. I work with students in person, over the internet, and am an approved vendor with Inspire Charter Schools. I coordinate with classroom teachers and IEP teams to ensure a comprehensive learning plan.
