COVID-19 Announcement

Due to precautions regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) all tutoring has been moved online  to support everyone's health.  I am also reducing my rates as many families are experiencing financial challenges and uncertainty in this difficult time.

What is math & mindset Coaching?

Supporting and strengthening the whole student.

A strong SAT score or a high grade in a Math class are achieved through having the required skills, knowledge, and testing techniques combined with a growth mindset around learning, hard work, and challenge.  At Math and Mindset Coaching, I will support your child to develop strength in each of these areas through a comprehensive and proven program that will help your child to be successful in all areas of their life.

Every experience we have has an emotional impact and learning is no exception.  With over two decades experience as a Math teacher and Dean of Students, I have honed my skills to address both the emotional and intellectual needs of students.  I will  help your child develop the mindset that will allow them to take intellectual risks, embrace challenges, and see mistakes as a necessary and beneficial part of the learning process.

My personalized tutoring approach will support your child to excel in Mathematics, strengthen skills and conceptual knowledge, and address the underlying mindset that your child has regarding school, math, success, and failure.  

Whether your child has deep-seated challenges with mathematical learning, loves to learn Math, or somewhere in between, I will devise a program to support your child's needs.

Much of my research and practice using "Growth Mindset" has been informed by the work of Carol Dweck, Professor of Psychology at Stanford University.  Use this link to learn more about the power of a growth mindset on learning.
