Learn from my Mistakes
Mistake #1: Understanding a math concept the wrong way! (Who taught me that???)
Consequence for Mistake #1: ...👀 (I'll tell you in my workshop. Crying was involved.)
Oh by the way,
Do you need a little "math class motivation"? Ok how about A LOT?!
Do you need some advice to make you feel like, "Yeah, I can do this. All I have to do is Thing A, Thing B and Thing C, and I'll be set up for success in this math class"?
That's how I want you to feel, confident in your own ability to succeed in math!
Part of that confidence comes from avoiding mistakes made by an experienced math trial and error-er (like me).
Nope, being a math coach does not mean it all came easy to me. I had to work and make mistakes to understand. Then repeat. And you will do the same, because that's part of the journey of coming to an understanding of math. You'll be saying, "OH! Oh ok. I see!" No baby walks after their first step.
But I want to help you avoid the mistakes I made that had my brain in a whirlwind. Nobody taught me these things. I had to slip down into a state of deep confusion, despair and nearly drop out of college before I forced myself to "see" if something else would work.
Want to know what stuck out as absolutely essential?
I will teach you what I learned when you come on Sunday to my workshop called
"Your 5 Essentials for Algebra Success"
And no this isn't just a whole bunch of "You can do it"s and "Believe in yourself"s. You've already heard that and it hasn't gotten you to the point you want to be right now in your math journey.
This workshop is a class full of practical steps you can start to implement now, like today. And your math mindset directly influences whether you'll take action. So we're talking about that too. Because if you don't think you can do it, guess what... YOU'RE NOT DOING IT.
I don't hold back in this workshop. I get real about my journey to where I am now (a little embarrassing) and about how you can use my lessons to propel yourself forward. Learn from my mistakes!
I've actually done some research in preparation for this workshop to make sure the information I'm presenting to you is accurate and something you can apply right now.
Wouldn't it feel good to go into your Algebra class next semester with a game plan to keep you focused on and moving towards the prize, PASSING?
What makes you nervous about taking Algebra?
Getting confused on new concepts?
An instructor who teaches too fast?
A weak math foundation that doesn't support new info?
Not knowing where to go for help when you're struggling on homework?
Fear no longer, because you get to hang out with me for about an hour in this workshop while WE address these issues and more together! If you've seen any of my other live math trainings then you know I'm super relaxed, chill and randomly humorous. My in-person students see me as a big sis. So no worries at all.
… And There’s a Chat Box
I've embedded a chat box on the workshop page so that you can interact with me. Type up any questions and I'll be in the chat box answering them. I also have a few questions for you in the training so that I can get to know you more while you share your thoughts, preferences and needs. You can also interact with others in attendance and possibly find a math study buddy. Be sure to keep it clean :)
By the end of the workshop, you'll:
Have the confidence to talk to your instructor about your concerns.
Know the most important tasks when studying math.
Understand what an unbreakable math foundation looks like.
Know the quickest way to get math help when you need it.
Just bring your:
Listening ears 👂, for my stories and the 5 essentials.
Attentive eyes 👀, for the cool pics and graphics I've curated for you.
A notebook 📓 and pencil ✏, because something's going to stand out for sure.
And last but not least, your undistracted opened mind 🧠 ready to learn something new.
Oh yea, and a snack. 🍿
I can't wait to see you live to share with you these 5 essentials to help you finally pass Algebra and move on with your life!
