There is a general belief that math is a subject that you just "get." Some people have the brains for it, and some people don't. I believe that this is fundamentally untrue, and that anyone can master math skills as long as they are willing to put in the time and effort.
I had the worst time with math until algebra. After that, math made sense.
I've been a substitute teacher for the last decade. I enjoy the days I get to spend in math classes, and I love to see when a student finally "gets it." It's that one concept that the student has been struggling to understand. When the student finally understands it, math seems possible.
My goal is to help students “get it”. If that means explaining the same concept a few times, so be it. Many times, a student just wants someone around to tell them that they are doing the problems correctly.
I am available for extra help with math classes. I can also help a student get ahead.
