Read these first two paragraphs, and see what you think:

“Within the current academic paradigm, students are expected to absorb and demonstrate knowledge in a very specific fashion. Our dominant pedagogic model is that of lecture: an expert in a field presents information verbally to a group of students and then, by way of a written exam, assesses the students on their retention of the material. This model is not universally successful for all learners.”

In plain English: “We can’t all learn by just sitting and listening, plus tests are hard – and unfair!”

If the plain English version of what I just said makes sense to you, we will enjoy working together.

I’ve been helping people learn things all my life, as a professional tutor, a volunteer tutor, a site supervisor, a mother and a classroom volunteer. Now, I want to help you learn math. This is one of the ways we describe our world, so all over the world there are chances to practice it. Oranges are perfect for learning fractions; spare change can easily show statistical sampling methods, and a deck of cards works great for practicing multiplication. It’s fun!

Sometimes math is hard, and sometimes it’s scary. Just like life! Once you find a path through it, the next challenge isn’t quite as frightening. Everyone’s route is different. Let’s find your path.
