COVID-19 Update: MFK is online! If you have a computer and high speed internet, you can do this program. 

Math For Keeps is a one-on-one math school. It works as a stand-alone program, or as a supplement to your math class at school (kinda like tutoring, only better). I offer two main courses: Practicing Math to Fluency and Practicing Algebra to Fluency. Each is customized to the student based on an initial assessment (which I offer a few times a month, for anyone- no strings). While many types of students can have a transformative experience here (public schoolers, private schoolers, homeschoolers, un-schoolers, any other variety of alt-edders, A students, failing students, adults going back to school, adults seeking brain health, basic math students, calculus students,…), my specialty is taking students who, if they hadn’t stumbled upon me and my practice approach, would probably never really learn math, and would have a terrible time trying–an unfair and unnecessary and far too common situation. If you are having a terrible time learning math, let’s talk. We can change that.

Why are YOU struggling in math? Find out where your gaps are in this interactive, powerful, and dare I say- fun- assessment!

The MFK Assessment is the Bomb
