You can do this!
Maybe it looks like gibberish right now. Or you're completely stressed out every time you open your math book.
It's totally normal. I know, because I was like you.
When I was 12 years old, nothing was clicking. Math was ok, but nothing I was really good at. Just...ok, you know?
But my 7th grade geometry teacher, Mrs. Baum, didn't let that fly. She saw something in me that I didn't see.
She saw someone who, with the right tools, could actually excel at her class. And could be confident...and feel good while I was doing it.
And I see that in YOU. This stuff may not make sense now, but I know you've got what it takes to make sense of it.
You just need some new tools. And some new ways of thinking. And I want to be the one to give those to you.
This isn't about memorizing endless pages of formulas. It's about understanding WHY things work, so that you can walk into your exams with more confidence, and walk out feeling great.
You have the ability, and you deserve to feel good in your own skin when you're in class.
Mrs. Baum gave me that gift, and now I want to give it to you. Come with me and let's give you the confidence you deserve.

I love playing and writing music on the guitar, drums, or computer...though I don't claim to be good at any of it. I grew up on video games, and still have a little time to sneak in Rocket League these days. (When my son isn't whooping me on Fortnite).
