Scott ...don’t “hate” math; they hate not being able to DO math. Understanding math requires foundational skills, and if that is established, anyone can learn to understand algebra and beyond.

During this time, I have taught Algebra 1 to Statistics to pre-calculus/trigonometry, including ACT math prep. I have had great success with all of my students including students with learning disabilities.... My philosophy is to really get to understand how a student's brain processes information, and then find ways to break down math content into smaller parts to make it more accessible for everyone.
