"Hello, my name is Sebastien Kelso, and I am interested in helping your child with prealgebra.

I majored in music at Sarah Lawrence College, where I also studied Intermediate Linear Algebra. I also have the equivalent of a micromaster's degree in Research and Statistics from Walden University. I have three years of teaching experience in various subjects, including Prealgebra, Algebra, Chemistry, Music, French, and English ESL. My highest level of mathematical attainment is AP Calculus.

My specialty in tutoring math is alleviating math anxiety using Mindfulness skills from Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I have been studying DBT for seven years, which includes intensive workshops and diploma studies. I have advanced mastery of applications of Mindfulness. I also have a goal of increasing my students' independence in their math skills, which is informed by the diploma I earned in Occupational Therapy Aide from Penn Foster.

I encourage and help my students to master prealgebra, because mastering prealgebra is essential for success in high school, and success in high school is essential for success in life. But prealgebra does not need to be difficult. My approach to making prealgebra easier is informed by research that I have done on the nature of challenges and how to address them.

In addition, I hold a Certification in Corporate Training, a Green Belt in Lean Six Sigma for Education, as well as a Master Black Belt in Lean Six Sigma, all of which I earned from Management and Strategy Institute. I have completed extensive studies beyond the level of bachelor's degree, with a focus on the philosophy of mathematics.

I have developed a number of methods designed to help your child succeed in prealgebra." less...
