This week, I have a fun talk with Audrey Codner-Gibson, a positive, confidence-building, super-effective Algebra tutor, about what to look for (and look out for) when finding a math tutor for your child. Spoiler: A great math tutor does waaaay more than explain math concepts.

Audrey has also taught Secondary Mathematics for 19 years in Baltimore, Maryland. She was a Professional Basketball player in Europe, a Big Five Hall of Fame inductee, and is the co-author of the upcoming book, Athlete to Entrepreneur.
Audrey and I share: 
  • Why tutoring is awesome and can make a huge difference in your child's grades and attitude towards math
  • What qualities to look for when hiring a math tutor (and what to watch out for)
  • Why some students have severe aversions to tutoring and math (and what we did as tutors in these scenarios)
  • Frequently overlooked reasons why Algebra is so confusing for some students
  • The difference between having a growth versus fixed mindset about math
