The Math Unicorn is on vacation until Jan 11th, 2021

Saturday, December 19th, 2020

Just a heads up, I’m on holiday break until Monday Jan 11th, 2021.

I am pacing myself for the marathon of COVID and 2021, and want to make sure that I am replenished so I can fully serve my clients in the new year. 

So if you’re submitting an application for your child to tutor with me, or you’ve purchased an intro session, you’ll hear back from me on Mon Jan 11th.

I’m excited to connect with you in a re-energized state!

Sending you love,

The Math Unicorn is back! FREE Math Tea Parties – Sept 1 & 2, 2020

Tuesday, August 25th, 2020

The other day, a rising 4th grader who came to our first math tea party wanted to know, “When is the next one?” 

Well, good news! Our next math tea party is next week!

And you’re invited!

Do you feel overwhelmed by suddenly having to teach your kid math?

Wondering how you’ll make it through another school year full of unknowns? 

Filled with dread trying to explain math homework? 

Would you rather eat razor blades than face another year of trying to do this alone?

Do you wish you could actually make math…magical? 

Then come join us this coming Tues 9/1 and Wed 9/2 at 4 pm eastern,
as I join forces with beloved tea party legend, Mrs. B of Tea With Mrs B

We will unveil the secrets of making math magical that I’ve discovered over my career as a Professional Math Unicorn, helping creative, passionate, unique kids achieve true math mastery.

You will learn simple, effective, fun tools that can be used on any problem and at any grade level.

Then we will practice applying these tools together, 
choosing from problems you bring to class, 
with participants taking turns in the spotlight getting help directly from me.

Wear your favorite tea party hat, and bring your favorite tea!

This event is designed for:
– parents, 
– or parents and kids *together*,
– but is NOT for kids to attend solo.   
(This is NOT a “drop-off” event.)

Testimonial: I’m officially a unicorn

Friday, February 21st, 2020

I was very touched to receive this testimonial from a current client whose daughter I’m tutoring in 10th grade Geometry:

Ok, my kid is a quirky, intuitive, kind, and wonderful person. She just did not get math. At all. As she progressed through elementary and middle schools, tutored all the way, doing math camps over the summer, and stints at Mathnasium, she kept falling further behind. I couldn’t help her because I didn’t know how. My husband’s approach hurt more than helped, adding to her anxiety and worsening her self esteem.

I was pretty desperate by the time I connected with Rebecca. Our first couple of phone calls, learning about her and her approach, were like taking a step back, a deep breath, and looking at my child anew. I felt hopeful because I knew Rebecca’s work would never hurt my daughter and may even help her.

Fast forward 4 months. My daughter is on a steady trajectory forward, enjoys geometry, loves Rebecca, and is looking forward to higher level math. She is getting it. Rebecca is patient and explores why she doesn’t understand something, helps her fill in the foundational gaps, and build up her knowledge. She participates more in class, isn’t hiding from math, and seems to actually enjoy learning geometry. An added plus is that she loves being smarter than me!

I call Rebecca my daughter’s unicorn – a rare and wondrous thing – a teacher worth her weight in gold. — mother of 10th grade geometry student at Yorktown High School

If you’re looking for a math unicorn — someone who will actually connect with your child and explain in a way they can deeply understand and remember, so they actually look forward to tutoring and get great grades — call me at 617-888-0160.

We’ll have a brief conversation about what’s not working, what you want instead, and how I can specifically help your child. And if it makes sense, we’ll go ahead and set up their first session.

I’d love to connect with you about how your child can go through this same transformation for themselves!
