Did you know that math can be fun? With play, movement and teambuilding, your student can learn to love math. Supplemental to your curriculum at home, no matter what math program you use, this class will help review the fundamentals of math with your tired, struggling or confused student. In class we will help students build the foundation to understand multiplication, factoring, division and take some mystery out of math. Using games and old fashioned, time-tested methods, Mrs. Small helps students review, drill and finally learn those multiplication facts.

The mystery is solved and X can be found with Michele Small. Using Saxon Algebra 1 we will learn in small steps to simplify, evaluate, add, subtract, multiply, and divide polynomial, rational, and radical expressions. Second semester we will factor polynomials; solve linear equations, linear systems, quadratic, rational, and radical equations and linear inequalities of one and two variables. Using Saxon’s spiral method, old concepts are reviewed and new concepts taught gradually to provide your student confidence as they move forward in math.

Michele loves to see the light bulb moment when a student “gets it”. She loves removing any fear of math by bringing fun into mathlearning. She found her passion for math as a teenager, but more importantly in high school she found her passion for Jesus and has been grateful to follow him for many years. Michele helps students understand math by breaking down concepts into small manageable pieces. Graduating from Texas A&M University with a degree in Civil Engineering, she worked in her field for 6 years earning her Professional Engineering License before she chose to become a stay-at-home mom. Married to her best friend Scott for 30 years, she homeschooled their 3 kids kindergarten to graduation. Her son Justin (23) graduated from college with a degree in Mathematics and works as a Data Engineer, Nathan (21) is a Civil Engineering major at California Baptist University (CBU) and her daughter Catherine (17) will enter CBU as a nursing major Fall 2018. She has taught classes in many different homeschooling venues through the years and has worked as a math tutor/teacher the last 5 years. **To register for math classes, contact Michele Small at mathmichelesmall@gmail.com**
