A Chat with MATH!
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I am a high school math teacher with 12 years of experience teaching working with diverse populations of students such as special education, college preparation, honors, and ESL. I also have a degree in physics education.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
I will supply all content material but students should bring something to write with, (preferably pencils with erasers), a notebook, a calculator and most importantly an open mind!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
In my experience many students who are transitioning from middle school to high school are not entirely prepared for what will be expected of them in a high school math class. I believe that if they could get a head start in the material it would ease this transition.
What do you love most about your job?
I like that moment when a student “gets it”. I like being able to help a student through the process of not knowing a concept and having them grapple with it and then seeing that light bulb moment when they finally “get it”.
