My favorite class in high school was… Spanish because I loved studying the language, but I also had a great teacher that helped us understand the reason Spanish grammar functions the way it does.
I wish when I was in high school I had known… that math really functions as its own language. As a tutor, one of my favorite things is helping students learn to understand this and become less intimidated by math because of it.
