Math Skills & Confidence


Instructor: Emperess Hall

For mathematician, Emperess Hall, math is truly a calling. Mrs. Hall began teaching math to her peers while a sophomore in high school. She was encouraged by her middle school Algebra teacher, who observed her gift of teaching others difficult math concepts through hands on, one on one instruction. Mrs. Hall’s approach to teaching math is that every student learns math differently and a strong foundation in basic math concepts through repetition is essential for the success of every student. Over the past 12 years she has successfully instructed both middle school and high school students to improve test scores, grades, and over all confidence in math.


Building students’ self-esteem in math is critical, with every lesson completed, students will be challenged to go beyond their comfort zone, hone their skills and expand their expectations of their own math capabilities and success. You will see improvement in accuracy of math facts, less time exhausted on homework, and better grades. These personalized math workshops are designed to target the students’ individual needs and deliver results.



Through the use of technology, students will use our software component ALEKS, which allows students to strengthen and improve math skills on the computer as well as allow parents to track their student’s success.
