parents and students to my page! Whether your child loves math or is
really nervous about learning math, I'm here to help. I have all kinds
of resources that will stretch the students who are looking for a
challenge. I also have support for those that get frustrated. Either
way, struggling or wrestling with concepts is how we get smarter- all of
us. If something comes super easy to you, it may not be making you

believe in my students. I'm going to do whatever it takes to help you
prepare for post secondary education, pass the AP Computer Science test, or any other math assessment coming your way.
We are going to do math every day. On day one, we will look at a real world example from a recent project.
I believe through hard work, all students can be successful in math. Through hard work, you can make it look easy.
