Creative math-lover infuses love of logic and math into her diverse and creative students

Methodology

I base my classes on my students. First I assess their learning styles (typically a mixture of visual and kinetic), and then we have fun! I use humor, logic, and lots of color to guide students into understanding. A lot of the time, the individual student has a simple disconnect between the teacher's methods and the student's learning style. I bridge that gap.

Background

I am a creative arts major (communications) and accounting graduate who found her love of math later in life. Because of my oddball background, I am able to help students who otherwise hate or just "don't get" math. I have been tutoring multiple subjects on a nearly full-time basis for the last five years. I am also a professional speaker/trainer who writes and facilitates webinars and live seminars in critical thinking, decision making, and professional communications.

Rates
