Maths is a subject inherently fraught with fear and anxiety based failure. Most students who struggle with math incorrectly believe that it is a reflection of their ability. The truth is that success in Math requires students to normalise mistakes. Sera creates space to reframe failures as teaching moments. Correcting one's own mistakes is invaluable to developing a deeper and long lasting understanding in mathematics.

When it comes to any difficult subject, Sera has noticed that students are strongly influenced and discouraged by personal and social experiences around the subject, leading to various self limiting beliefs. Sera works to build confidence around the subject using the Socratic Method and attempts to spark interest through surprise tasks and concepts, to instil a sense of pride and achievement through small surmountable successes. This helps to increase enthusiasm for the subject and learning in general.

It can often be hard for students to see value in their educational pursuits. Like motivation, this sense of value ebbs and flows with time. Sera tries to help students to draw long term value from their immediate learning experiences and help them to connect their strengths to their personal passions and interests, by encouraging a vision of their ultimate big picture, in order to get them excited for the future.
