High School MATH TUTOR : Fun, Compassionate, Mental Health Support, Homework Help, Test Prep

Methodology

I love to teach math for a few reasons. First of all, there is such a need for support in mathematics. I hear from parents all the time that they struggle with one of two problems: they do not remember how to do the math, or they remember but it's a strain on the relationship with their child to try to teach them. This is something I completely understand as a mother to an 8 year old. Secondly, math is a strong subject for me, I love puzzles and problem solving, and I love showing students that math can be fun and satisfying. If they're not convinced, that's okay with me! My goal is to help students make it through their semester with the lowest stress and anxiety as possible.

Math-phobia, performance and test anxiety, and a student's beliefs around math greatly impact their ability to do well in this subject. For many students, this started early in elementary school. There is a pervasive societal belief that there are people who can do math, and people who can't. While there are some students who have an aptitude for this type of logical thinking and problem solving, it is simply not true that some people are math deficient and not able to perform well. I help students to overcome their false beliefs about their own potential. We work together to overcome mental roadblocks and to push through the invisible wall.

I have lots of experience working with all kinds of disabilities and mental health issues. I foster a welcoming and safe space. I believe that students perform best in an environment where they feel relaxed and comfortable. Math feels so vulnerable and students are afraid to make mistakes. The truth is, the ONLY way to get good at math is to make a lot of mistakes! I encourage students to make those mistakes, observe where they went wrong, and trouble-shoot together. In this way, we build resilience, problem-solving, critical thinking, strategy, and independence. It's not helpful to students to be told repeatedly what to do. They need to work through it with a little guidance so that the methods can be internalized and understood in a fundamental way.

I primarily teach grades 9, 10, and 11. Currently, I'm introducing grade 12 math to my repertoire and have a promotional price on these lessons for a limited time. There is some variation in math topics between curriculums in different places, so please inquire if you have specific questions. Aside from high-school math, I have helped college level students, students preparing for entry exams, and middle school or elementary students as well. Don't hesitate to inquire, as I have a lot of experience teaching people from all walks of life.
