Solving factors can get pretty difficult when we get to larger numbers. However, it doesn't have to be! With the rainbow method, students can discover factors and factor pairs easily! In this class, we will go over how the rainbow method works, when to use it, and how to create one yourself. Students will complete this lesson with a great understanding of how to find factors for larger and more complex numbers.

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!
