Meet Our Multisensory Math Coaches
ADRIANNE is the owner of MFM and a certified teacher with over a decade of experience tutoring middle and high school students in math.
She has seen up close how using multisensory math techniques with her students leads to more confidence, higher grades, but also a rooted understanding of how math works.
Her mission is to find the perfect math coach for your child to ensure the student can reach their highest potential.
KARA is a certified educational therapist and works with students using multisensory math approaches. She specializes in helping students with special needs such as dyslexia, autism, ADD, and poor working memory.
You can get to know Kara a little bit more by reading her articles here on MFM.
How does multisensory math work with online tutoring?
I LOVE this question. Often we'll choose objects that a student has readily available at home to use such as cereal or M & M's. But we also send some students a package of items to use during class. Most of our group classes have a box of materials and a workbook that is mailed to their home.
During the session, most students know how to adjust their camera so that the coach can see the items they are touching during the session. The students can also see the math coaches materials through their screen.
While touch is a big part of multisensory math, it also involves language and speed of which we speak. You'll notice that we speak at a slower rate and there often is quiet as we wait for our students to process the information they are learning.

How much does it cost us to work with one of math coaches?
As a parent myself, I get annoyed when websites hide pricing on their website. I refuse to do that with you!
Kara and I are trained in multisensory math techniques which are very different from what mainstream tutoring centers use. We don't believe in doing drill n' kill math but instead work within a framework called CRA.
C: Concrete (think of touching things with your hands/real-world math)
R: Representational (think of drawing pictures)
A: Abstract (think of using just numbers)
We work rapidly through these levels with students as they understand at a concrete level what we are doing. This method is used with all levels of math, not just elementary students.

We'll help you identify if your child is a good fit for multisensory math coaching.
Group Coaching - Price Varies
Our small group coaching is a very popular choice. We focus on specific topics and do an intensive four-week class using a blended approach of videos + group coaching once a week.
DIY Coaching - Price Varies
We use multisensory math techniques in the videos we create to support our students in small groups and solo coaching. One of the big benefits of having videos at your disposal is that your child can watch them again and again until they understand.
Families also use them as a quick reference to jog their memories of how to use certain methods.
We can't afford tutoring at this price point. What options do we have?
We recognize that this doesn't fit within all family budgets. Our desire is to help students regardless of ability to pay. We do have some scholarships available.
