Often people think they are “bad at math” or that “math is just too hard” when they run into difficulties with Algebra, Trigonometry, or Calculus. But these problems actually began way back in elementary school. Don’t let your child’s early education fall through the cracks, where the seeds of confusion grow into a frail foundation set to collapse under logarithms and integrals. Set your child up for success by mastering the basics: fractions, decimals, percents, negative numbers, etc.
I take the mystery out of math by helping students understand HOW numbers work and WHY they work that way. For four decades I have been teaching the skills students need to excel – working with them to develop their abilities and build their confidence. From establishing a solid foundation during elementary school, going back to the basics, or getting support to understand the more complex theories in higher level math I can help you achieve your goals, whether you’re a math whiz or math phobic.

Based on the CDPH guidelines Ken and I were both able to receive our full vaccination regimen. We are still following health precautions including a medical quality HEPA filter cycling the air 4-5 times per hour; surfaces, pencils, etc. are sanitized after each use; students must wash/sanitize hands when they arrive and before they leave. Do not come to class if you are not feeling well.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
