My name is Jessica and I’m the founder of The Mindfull Mentor! My mission is to teach math in a mindful way that helps students understand the WHY behind what they are learning, and allows them to see how fun and interesting math can really be!
I have a bachelors in Math and a Masters in Education. I taught middle and high school math for the last 10 years, and absolutely LOVE working with students to help them look at math in a new way that they haven’t thought of before to improve their math skills and confidence. After being in the classroom for so long, I realized that the public education system doesn’t really allow students the creativity and freedom they need to be able to really understand what they’re learning, or to motivate them to want to keep learning. It over tests students, stresses them out, and takes away their ability to think critically and explore and learn in exciting ways. So many students get discouraged and put off by math, and that breaks my heart.
Which is why I wanted to find ways to teach math to students that allow them to be creative and explore and learn important problem solving skills that will help them see that math is so interesting and so much fun!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out! And check out my in person homeschool math classes, math tutorials on YouTube, and private online tutoring services if you are interested in having me work with your student to help them feel empowered and confident in their math skills!
