"Getting one of [my students] to practice times tables was a like pushing cooked spaghetti across a linoleum floor...After I found this game on your website (and some 12-sided dice on Amazon), his attitude toward tutoring improved drastically. He seemed somewhat excited to come, even during last period on Friday."

Hi, I'm Maria. I have over 15 years experience in education, including over 8 years providing intensive math intervention, enrichment and everything in-between. Along the way, I discovered that there is nothing I enjoy more than to turn math haters into math lovers through fun games, meaty number talks, and a positive math community.
Something really clicked for me when I discovered how to go deeper with math assessments. Suddenly, I knew exactly what step to take next to help my students⏤of all levels and learning styles⏤move forward with math (whatever that looked like for them).
In addition to working directly with students each week, I also present on topics related to math education to California Bay Area schools and parent groups.

"During her time working with my daughter, Maria has been able to identify my daughter's challenge areas, structure a plan to overcome those challenges and provided my daughter with a roadmap for improvement.
