Award-Winning Middle School Math Tutors in Washington, DC
Sara "...My teaching style is very different to that of a typical classroom because I use concepts from science and math every day and understand how they are most easily applied and explained.

This intricate balance can be achieved through increasing the availability and visibility of positive role models, advocating for participation in extracurricular activities, and educating students about goal setting and having high expectations for themselves.."
