I tutor children from pre-K to grade 6 and work with parents to help create the educational experience they have always wanted for their children.

Summer 2015 Math Enrichment Camps for 7-11 year olds

I’m offering two exciting camps this summer. Please email me if you have any questions or want to register! Tuition for a camp is $75, which includes take-home materials for activities and games to play as a family. All four sessions take place at my home teaching studio in Lake Forest Park, and all you need to bring is a water bottle, your courage, and curiosity!

Math, Art & More!

Spend two hours each day integrating mathematical concepts and art. Students will be painting, drawing, and constructing with a variety of materials. We will also stretch our mental math muscles as we play games together in a supportive community. Students will also bring home a folder of math resources to support them in their math learning.

  • Monday, July 11th & Tuesday, July 12th, 10:30-12:30

Secret Code Writing

Students will write and decipher secret codes all while learning about their place in history. They will experiment with a variety of complex codes as they write and solve.

  • Monday, July 27th & Tuesday, July 28th, 10:30-12:30

Tricky Math Puzzles & Games

Join us for two hours each day full of fun, hands-on, collaborative mathematical problem solving and mental gymnastics! Students will be exposed to algebra, strategy games, and complex problems that require multiple steps and a variety of operations.

  • Session #1: Monday, August 3rd & Tuesday, August 4th, 10:30-12:30
  • Session #2: Monday, August 10th & Tuesday, August 11th, 10:00-12:00

Summer Math Picnics

Math Picnics are scheduled as requested. These small groups of 2 or 3 friends meet me on a picnic blanket with good snacks, shade, a sharp pencil, and a clipboard. We will play fun games, solve tricky puzzles, and enjoy our time of learning.

Please call or email me to schedule these special Math Picnics. The $40 fee includes fun, take-home games, and puzzles.
