About Lindsay

I've been teaching math in Brooklyn for eleven years now. Most of that time has been teaching 8th, 9th and 10th grade pre-algebra and algebra but I've also taught some trigonometry, pre-calculus and statistics.

I believe in the idea that anyone can learn anything with the right amount of tenacity, grit and encouragement. Toward that end, I like to implement an investigative approach to understanding that is paired with repeated practice. This allows you to move from being cognitively aware of each step of problem solving, into someone whose skills are automatic. When basic skills stop being the barrier to understanding, it enables higher level thinking and connections to form. I also believe fear is at the heart of many people's feelings toward math and if we can address the fear by accepting and investigating errors. There is a lot of value in an incorrect answer. We just have to examine it more closely.

I have a very calming presence. I can alleviate your anxiety toward learning new things in general and math in particular.
