Math Learning Success = Strategies for How To Learn Mathematics
Hi,
For over 30 years, I have been a Math Tutor & Coach for students taking: Common Core Math, High School, Middle School, College, SAT, GRE, Prealgebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Probability & Statistics, Calculus and Diff Eq
I am NY Certified in 7-12 Math and retired from RIT last year as a Math Instructor/Coordinator of a psychologically based TRiO SSS Math Support Program. I am also a Graduate of Carnegie-Mellon University & University of Rochester.
Does your son or daughter want to understand math better...struggle with homework...do poorly on tests...memorize formulas... aspire for higher math grades...feel discouraged? If you answered "yes" to any of the above, your son or daughter is most likely very capable of learning math if given the right tools for effective learning.
In our education system, students are generally not taught "how to learn" mathematics. It is up to them to create their own, often survival, learning strategies. In sports, there is tremendous time spent on individualized coaching, practice and learning. It is very different in academic settings. Your son or daughter usually has only their class experiences to support their learning. Then, they are on their own to figure out their homework. Many teachers are available for after school help. Sometimes there are too many students there for individual attention to happen.
As a math instructor at RIT for 30 years, I created a psychologically based math support program that focused on the individual math learner. Students were encouraged to communicate their math thinking as the basis for connecting math support to their strengths and needs in math learning. Through this collaboration, we could also develop more effective strategies for "how to learn" mathematics.
ALL students can be more successful when they have tools for math learning that tap into their natural strengths and abilities.
