All students learn in different ways and at different speeds. Every effort will be made in class to accommodate each student’s learning style. However, if classroom instruction is not enough I am more than willing to provide help outside of class. Please encourage your child to talk to me in class and we can arrange a time to meet. I understand that most students are very active in sports, music, jobs, etc. but I will not hesitate to remind them that academics are the most important part of school. I will go out of my way to help students to succeed in class and they must be willing to devote the necessary time to studying. If you are considering hiring a private tutor, please contact me first. I certainly understand that sometimes this is necessary, but I would like to let you know how your child is doing and if s/he is coming in for extra help. My goal is for your child to have a successful year studying mathematics that will open doors of opportunity for him/her in their future.
