Does the mere thought of teaching algebra cause you to rethink your life...
Can you feel the horrors of high school math reaching back through the years to torment you...
Do you have one of those precious students who have you inches from dialing 911 over math lessons...
Hi! I'm Ruth Cooper!
I'm not only a homeschool graduate and MBA, but I'm also one of those Saxon math "survivors." It's okay; you can laugh.
Honestly, my own math journey wasn't the smoothest... even went back and repeated a year at one point!
But wouldn't you know that very process of repeating a year unlocked the world of math and transformed my outlook on math.
Once I had the secrets, I couldn't keep them to myself. It's been over 20 years since then - 20+ years of tutoring and teaching experience that has been a guide for all ages of hundreds of students: algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and beyond.
MathMedics+ is a natural extension of who I am and my love of helping students (and their parents) discover math can be fun.
No matter what your mathematical situation is, MathMedics+ takes the emergency out of math through high-quality instruction offered via weekly live, self paced, or subscription format classes.
Math. Can. Be. Fun.
Founder and Teacher
Ruth Cooper loves math and math-related topics and thoroughly enjoys the mystery and beauty inherent to the mathematical and engineering worlds... and works to share that delight with others.
Ruth has taught and tutored math and math-related subjects from kindergarten level through Calculus I - children, teens, adults, and special-needs students since she was in high school. She believes each student learns in his or her own way and her ultimate goal is to find what it will take for each student to be successful in his or her studies.
Ruth is a homeschool graduate and holds a Master's in Business Administration from Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh, Scotland) and has a degree in progress from Virginia Commonwealth University in PreMedical Biomedical Engineering.
She has varied interests and accomplishments ranging from lifeguard, EMT, and Uber driver to bookkeeper, test scorer, and webcomic creator (myxnor.com). Ruth loves CrossFit and running and has completed several marathons, as well as a half Ironman and countless shorter races... this is contrasted by a desire to chill at Starbucks, drink coffee, and do Sudoku while pondering ancient mysteries.
The Coopers live in Virginia Beach, Virginia and have three boys and a fish.
