I am a middle school math and special education teacher in NYC. I have experience working with struggling and gifted students. I am very familiar with the 6th, 7th and 8th grade common core exams. I enjoy math and I also understand how difficult it is for so many people. If you are struggling with math I want to encourage you to think that you CAN do math and that it is okay if you don't understand something YET. I suggest checking out Jo Boaler's videos on believing in yourself and having a growth mindset in math. https://www.youcubed.org/resources/believe-in-yourself-video/
One of the most common issues I see my students face is they don't recognize when they are already thinking mathematically. I can help you find your strengths in math. Another common issue is students don't know what to ask when they get stuck. I can give the tools needed for when you struggle in class. I have over 5 years experience teaching middle school math and I have decades of experience working with youth. Regardless of who you choose as a tutor, I hope you begin or continue to have positive experiences in math class.
