About

historically, i tutored mathematics and english, but while i am now professionally otherwise occupied, i am quite dedicated to battling mathphobia and boosting mathematical confidence as recreation whenever the opportunity presents. i primarily worked with students with dyscalculia and other learning disorders.

my philosophy of education is that no one is inherently bad at math. Identifying and addressing the specific obstacles students encounter creates an environment where they can safely gain confidence, recognize and appreciate their existing accomplishments, and shift their perspective on what it even means to be "good" at math. classrooms and teachers are often ill-prepared to handle the ways current mathematical pedagogy fails many students, which tends to reinforce existing mathphobia. access to one-on-one learning to address these shortcomings should be a student right, not a privilege.
