I teach college level mathematics. However what it should really be called is ‘positive self belief coach.’
The first reaction I often get after revealing my career option, is suprise followed by fear. People retreat stating they ‘don’t do maths’, or quickly confess ‘I’m terrible at maths’ as if to ward off a quick fire math question i was about to give.This happens time and time again.
I teach maths because I know anyone can do it…if they believe they can. That is seriously half the battle!!
The moment my students taste success and see it’s not that hard when it is broken into steps is what sustains me in moments of immense frustration when I see students give up before they have begun!!!
Maths is beautiful, symmetrical,perfection. complex,logical, and empowering.
