Philomathy is a real word! It means a Love of Learning, and instilling philomathy is central to what I want to do for kids and people. My specialty is in math education, dance, and skills of self-management, and my approach is philomathic and informed by studies of occupational therapy and neuroplasticity. When I work with students on any skills, students getting satisfaction out of the learning, while finding some easiness in it, is paramount to my goals.
So, is this a school or a tutoring service? ...It's both. And both have a modest home on Monona Drive or can be traveling services at this stage in the School's development. I offer a schedule of classes for homeschoolers and contract with local charters and organizations for onsite sessions. This model lends itself to some desirable flexibility, and we'll see where it takes us. Whether its branches always proliferate under a canopy of freelance teaching and learning or it becomes rooted in something more permanent is yet to be realized.
Body-based mixed-age math, rhythm, and movement class for grades 1-6! Class limit of 6-8 students, depending on grade level.
Materials/activities are customized to the group. Grades 1-6 courses typically includes math concepts: base-10 system, subitizing to 20, 100, or 1000, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, mental math, order of operations, fractions, decimals, percents, integers.
Students may enroll in multiple classes per week if desired.
The classes are adapted from prior experiences as a math teacher, a dance teacher, and a trained Montessori assistant. They are also inspired by the growing evidence that movement, rhythm, and sensory integration are inexorably linked to learning, development, and interventions.
Classes use sensory materials, music, clapping rhythms, simple dance moves, martial arts, yoga, balances, OT exercises, and fine-motor activities as warms-ups, brain-builders, and brain breaks for a dynamic math learning experience.
