Teaching algebra can cause you to rethink your life...
The horrors of high school math reach through the years to torment you...
One of your precious students has you seconds from dialing 911 over math lessons...
Hi! I'm Ruth Cooper!
Homeschool graduate. MBA. Educational Therapist. CrossFit trainer. Bookkeeper. Saxon math "survivor." It's okay; you can laugh.
I am not a math genius. Math was hard work - I even had to repeat pre-algebra at one point!
Great - why should you trust me with your student's math journey? Because that process of repeating pre-algebra unlocked the world of math and transformed my outlook on math.
Once I got those secrets, I couldn't keep them to myself. To this day, I continue to use those 20+ years of tutoring and teaching experience as a guide for hundreds of students of all ages: algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and beyond.
I can't not teach and MathMedics+ is a natural extension of who I am - and I love helping students (and their parents) discover that math can be fun.
No matter what your 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, math teacher, and educational therapist. She holds a Master's in Business Administration from Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh, Scotland), a partial degree in Pre-Med Biomedical Engineering from Virginia Commonwealth University, a second Master's degree in Mathematics Instruction, Professional Certificate in Educational Therapy (PCET) in NILD Educational Therapy, and working towards a certification in Autistic Studies and Ph.D. in Advanced Leadership from Regent University.
She has varied interests and accomplishments ranging from lifeguard, EMT, and Uber driver to bookkeeper, test scorer, end-of-year evaluator, and webcomic creator (myxnor.com). Ruth loves CrossFit and is a Level 1 CrossFit trainer and glutton for punishment, having run several marathons, 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 with thier three boys and the distant memory of a fish.
