In my free time, I love to rock climb, run,...

This opportunity allowed me to expand my skills by serving as a therapeutic counselor providing guidance,...
Lisa A life-long mathematics educator and learner who thrives in an atmosphere of academic collaboration, investigation, discovery and enlightenment. I believe that all students can learn and grow intellectually. I firmly believe in the wonderful and hopeful word "yet"...as in, "I can't do this 'yet', but if I keep working and trying, I will be able to do it eventually!"... I would introduce myself and try to find some commonality between myself and the student. I would ask about learning style, strengths, and weaknesses regarding retention of new material. I would ask about fears and experiences that might be roadblocks to learning and discuss how we might allay these.
