Yes, you can conquer math, and it won't be necessary to suffer while doing so.

My approach to math very is simple: everyone can understand it, and everyone can succeed at it, whether the goal is to make class time more effective during school hours or to ace a standardized test. I have ten years' experience working with some of the most challenging students in Los Angeles County. I have a great sense of humor, I know my math and I love working with kids. I deliver rigorous Algebra and Geometry content and encourage young people to welcome math as an enjoyable part of daily life.

It's important that I know my content, and I do. But perhaps most importantly, what I bring to my work with kids is a sense of humor. Not the kind of "humor" in which I find math jokes funny, because they're usually not. Instead, I approach math as something other than lifeless, humorless drudgery. Math can be a key to continued success in school, but for most students, it's not a life-or-death issue: so let's keep everything in perspective. We can relax, learn the math, and find some enjoyment in the time we spend in front of a math book.

I have an undergraduate degree from Amherst College, a master's degree in architecture from the University of California at Berkeley, and a master's degree in Secondary Education from Loyola Marymount University. The examples I talk about in my math classes include architecture, art, art history, engineering, literature, philosophy and history.

Math is beautiful, fascinating and weird. It's also a human construct that anyone can learn.
