Through all my years of teaching math at middle school, high school, and college levels, and tutoring all three groups I found one single common denominator. It is math-phobia. Most students lacked the confidence, not the ability to learn math, or even to shine in math.
After a few sessions, and a test or two where they achieved an improved score and went on to higher scores, they realized their potential and no longer feared math.

Through all my years of teaching math at middle school, high school, and college levels, and tutoring all three groups I found one single common denominator. It is math-phobia. Most students lacked the confidence, not the ability to learn math, or even to shine in math.
After a few sessions, and a test or two where they achieved an improved score and went on to higher scores, they realized their potential and no longer feared math.
Once the fear disappeared, math aptitude appeared and the rest is history. I am happy to sit with your student for one free 30 minute session and assess where he or she is in the spectrum.

As a former classroom teacher I have extensive experience with students who struggle with focusing and self motivating. I have had great results with helping students realize the resources that are available to them and utilizing them properly. My specialty is in math topics, though the skill can easily be applied to all subjects. Many students never look at the actual text book for anything other than homework assignments. However, most text books have ample instructions and information to clearly explain the subject matter. I have helped many students learn how to utilize this valuable tool and how to decode the information in easy to understand material.

Martial Arts

I am not sure what the criteria would be to certify one in martial arts, as there are many styles of such arts. I have a 2nd degree brown belt in Kenpo Karate and have practiced a variety of other arts with varying degrees. I have been a practitioner of Kenpo Karate for over 20 years. I also designed and taught an integrated unit of martial arts & math to middle school students during a summer program, while I was a teacher. My qualification and certification would depend on the student's level and goals.
