|Schuyler Dunphy, math tutor|
“Recent research indicates that it is not helpful to categorize people as inherently good or bad at math,” he says.
“Unfortunately, parents often call their kids ‘smart’, thinking that this encourages them and boosts their self-confidence. However, challenges in the academic and professional world are inevitable, and encouraging students’ perseverance in the face of obstacles is a more helpful in fostering long term success.”
As a tutor, he wants to foster his students’ ability to learn independently and appreciate that getting stuck on a math problem is unavoidable and an opportunity for growth.
