Hi, I’m Dr. Steele.

Educator, mathematician and self-proclaimed bougie numbers nerd.

Hi, I’m Dr. Steele.

Educator, mathematician and self-proclaimed bougie numbers nerd.

Math and inspiring young people fights for the top spot in my heart. I’ve got over 18 years of experience in education, including professional development facilitation, internship coordination, project consultation, STEM program direction, research, and curriculum writer. I’ve built programs to not only educate young ladies on the basics of math, but how to fall in love with it. I’ve been a speaker at national conferences and coached t​​eachers and administration on implementation of evidence-based math. Basically, I teach the teachers!

I’m all about destroying basic methods to rebuild new paths to numbers. With my signature program, B.O.S.S.E.S. (Brilliant Outcome of STEM Sistas in Education and Society), I cover the personal development and STEM curriculum that come with being a young girl or teen. I’ve tutored, mentored and taught thousands of students, and I’m so excited to usher your family into the world of STEM.

All I ask is that you do your best, and forget the rest.

“I got through the course! I really thought it was awesome! I especially liked that I was better able to visualize why the math was working, rather than depending on memorizing facts and hoping that they worked. I like the idea of breaking math down into pieces that I can visualize and comprehend.”

“The way Dr. Steele taught her classroom and conducted things was amazing. I learned a lot from her and I would take her for every single math class if I could.”

Your daughter says, “I’m just not good at math.”

But what she really means is….

  • No matter how excited she gets, society has snatched her confidence and enjoyment in math tasks you know she can do. You watch in frustration as her hopelessness bleeds into the next lesson.
  • No matter how you try to reverse their lessons at home, it doesn’t seem to be working. The letters that spell “G-O-O-G-L-E” on your keyboards are faded because you’re all search-engined out!
  • Your words of encouragement fall on deaf ears. She interprets everything you say as, “Well, they love me, so of course that’s what they say.”
  • She’s floated through school grasping the basics and not much else. She’s hit a point where she truly needs to understand beyond the basics, but doesn’t feel comfortable with in-school support.
  • It feels like she’s expected to “just be smart.” It’s not always that easy for her. It’s hard for her to raise her hand out of fear of embarrassment from classmates.

The fun of math has been stomped to death. It’s time to fall in love with the essence of math.

“I hope you know your algebra like you know those rap lyrics,” won’t pass your lips anymore.

 

I won’t even focus solely on the grades, because you know there’s so much more to your child. Finally getting the guidance and real-time teaching could mean:

  • She’s excited to complete her homework every day, because she finally has the tools to complete assignments. She can hop on TikTok and use her time freely, because she knocks out her homework an hour after returning home.
  • Your teacher conferences don’t end with her head down in the car any longer. You beam with pride as her teachers tell you how well she’s improved.

  • She can let go of the curriculum piling up in her backpack. She no longer juggles a course load she can’t comprehend, and is even helping her friends on FaceTime coworking sessions.

Unlearn what you’ve learned and reverse the one-trick-teaching methods.

You can do that with an educator that knows the ins and outs, and can explain them in clear and simple terms.

The families I work with have all sorts of experiences, similar to yours:

With parents and guardians I

provide…

 

  • A chance to lower stress, and have a healthy outlet to express frustrations with super traditional teaching methods.
  • A chance to encourage your child to enter STEM, with a community of fellow girls who face similar struggles. Now, it’s not just you that tells her she’s smart and wonderful.
  • A seamless transition from exhaustion, discomfort and hopelessness to excitement and joy surrounding schoolwork.

With students and mentees, I

know…
  • You’re stuck in a cycle of procrastination, and want to prepare for state exams, SAT and ACT, but don’t have a lot of hope that you can pull it off yourself.
  • The transition from homeschool to private or public school has been rough. What used to be fun and comforting has turned into exhaustion.
  • You want to get a truly custom experience, because you know you and all your classmates learn differently.
  • You’ve been on the honor roll with straight A’s all of your life. You’re disappointed in your grades because you’re used to being the best.
  • You nerd out over everything math and science, but finish your work early and feel like you could learn so much more. You want to take your first steps into a STEM career after high school. People raise their eyebrows when you say you’re a future doctor, mathematician, biologist or professor.

Whether a guardian or student, pick a story. Any story. We cover them all.

“She was very helpful when she would notice we did not understand certain things just by our discussion post, or if it was something small she would comment or email us. Math has never been hard for me so I did not struggle much but when some of the harder topics came up those did become a bit confusing for everyone and she provided all the help she could for us.”

Previous Student

“I didn’t like math myself until my Junior year when a classmate helped me and I was finally able to “see” why the math was working, and I feel that this course helped me see the math as well. I think learning math as an elementary school kiddo this way would have been better for my education and self-confidence. I feel like I was better able to understand Common Core math, and I also feel that this would have been a better way for me to learn math as a kid. I am a visual learner, and this course appealed to my learning style.”
