Encouraging Persistence in Math
I have been crafting personalized math lessons for learners of all ages for over 15 years. My teaching career started when I founded a learning center which allowed me to work one-on-one with students and get to know their learning styles. I decided to transition to teaching in a school when the tutoring hours started interfering with my family life. As a strong believer that content is often not the root cause of student struggle, I work to address the core beliefs of learners and develop their growth mindsets and problem solving skills.
I currently work as the math department head and tech director at a small alternative boarding school in Burlington, Vermont.
