Along with teaching him his math skills she has worked with him on organization of his thoughts, executive functioning, and different ways of approaching the problem. Her talents go beyond just teaching the math she is good at understanding of teaching "whole student."
She struggles especially with writing papers, particularly when asked to analyze something that, for example, they've read in class. All the stuff is up there in her head, but she has trouble getting it out in an organized way. Lisa has so far been able to teach her ways to help with that, given her some structure to work with, executive functioning. And so patient, and a sense of humor! We highly recommend Lisa!
But Tammy stepped up to help with some executive functioning skills and any holes he had in math as well! She keeps him on task, engaged, and having fun. She has helped him improve his academic self-esteem. Tammy comes with a tool belt of skills from her education, extra training, and her experience teaching special education students at the high school and tutoring a wide range of students. We are so blessed to have found her this year. Contact her to see how she can help you or your student.
