There are several reasons your student may need math support.  Your child may not be at the top of his/her game in math and you don’t have time to provide the extra support.  Or, your child has progress beyond the math their school is teaching and races through assignments without learning something new or being challenged. Maybe your child has a unique learning style that could be fostered by one-on-one learning.  A personalized learning program may be just what your child needs to excel in math.

 

I have taught math to students from early elementary to middle school and have developed an online curriculum aligned to both Common Core Standards and State Standards.  I will work with your child to discover which concepts need improvement, provide visual engagement that motivates your child to find solving math problems exciting.

 

I have more than 20 years of experience in the classroom from elementary to college and university.  I earned my BEd. in Canada at the University of Lethbridge and my MEd. from American Intercontinental University.  I also have additional certification in Intellectually & Academically Gifted Education.
