Math Coaching is similar to tutoring. You are tutored on specific math skills, learn and practice math concepts, helped with homework and test preparation. But coaching involves the whole student, and provides positive feedback. Math Coaching also includes life strategies to help you succeed such as helping with organization and prioritizing, developing study skills, and whenever possible using real life examples to help increase understanding and relevance. These skills are not drilled into the student. They are taught on an organic basis – as they uniquely arise for each individual student.

WHO IS MY MONDAY MATH COACH?
Hi! I'm Beth. I'm bit of a math geek, and also a tech theatre geek (as you can see by the rest of this website). I have had many students in my life who say they 'hate' math, or they were 'never any good at' math. I realize that in any given class only a handful of students will go on to directly create a career utilizing a lot of math, but it’s my philosophy that you don’t have to give up because you are not the class-expert. One of my favorite sayings I have seen is “Use the talents you possess…for the woods would be silent if no birds sang except the best.” Putting this into perspective for the students helps them realize that just because they’re not the ‘class wiz’ in that given subject doesn’t mean they should ‘hate’ math and give up altogether. And so it is my intention to provide them with a foundation that will serve them in their own lives. I want to impart upon my students that the skills they do learn are transferable to a wide variety of jobs, and I try to use as many as possible real life examples and situations to create meaning and understanding. When I am working with students, as well as increasing their proficiency in the curriculum content, I want to help them further develop a broad range of skills that will benefit them throughout their lives, such as: creative thinking, decision making, problem solving, perseverance, analytical thinking, and self-motivated responsibility. It’s always been my philosophy that if one provides perspectives of real life meaning, and confidence in learning, then a student is most likely to apply themselves. Give the student a real life purpose, and then interest and understanding - and therefore enjoyment - can be enhanced. I hope my students will enjoy (yes, enjoy!) math as much as I do!
MATH ISN’T JUST FOR KIDS...
