About the course

Multiplying fractions are so important especially in real-life situations such as cooking and baking. It is important for us to be able to express our understanding of why fraction multiplications get us our results. In this class, we will be utilizing the area model to help us visualize and back up our understanding of how fractions work and how to multiply them. In this class, we will be going over the area model, how to use it to solve for fraction multiplications. We will also have a worksheet to complete as well as a fun activity!

I have tutored hundreds of students in various subjects, formats, and locations. I have taught students both online and in-person subjects ranging from chess, SAT, ACT, computer science, SHSAT, and personal finance. I have hosted large classes as well as one-on-one sessions. In high school, I have taught SHSAT at a tutoring school, chess at a non-profit organization and for an after school program. As a college student, I host online chess workshops as well as private lessons. I cater my lessons to the needs of the class and individual and strive to make the topic engaging, interactive, and fun!
