Customer Care and Convention Reps

 Ann

Customer Care and Conventions

She has homeschooled for 12 years, youngest started RS from the beginning with her older child (high school- er) joining in for the games and also learning strategies and mental math. She loves ALL the levels of RS but her ultimate favorite is Geometric Approach that gives such a fantastic foundation for upper level mathematics and that much needed explanation of why. She enjoys helping people along their journey of homeschooling. Ann and her family go biking, running, and camping and she enjoys gardening and reading. You can reach her at Ann@RightStartMath.com.

Kathleen M.

Customer Care and Conventions

Kathleen began using RightStart™ Mathematics at home with her 3rd and 7th grade sons several years ago. The abacus and manipulatives gave mathematical understanding and ease in a way never before experienced even by Kathleen. Geometry was a fun integration for the boys to experience as they learned about equilateral triangles, rhombuses, vertexes, and more. Her very visual, musical 7th grader was terribly behind in math when they began to homeschool and took Level E that year. It was an excellent decision and the areas in which he was deficient were quickly understood. He completed Honors Algebra 2 in his junior year of high school and was recommended to Pre-Calculus for his senior year. RSM gave him the encouragement he needed. Kathleen is eager to share with others the RightStart™ Mathematics philosophy and principals that have governed this excellent curriculum. She graduated with a BSN from Florida State University in 1986. She and her husband have 4 boys ranging in ages from 27-14 years, a daughter-in-law and 2 grandsons. You can reach her at Kathleen.M@RightStartMath.com.

The youngest will begin Level G this coming school year. She can be reached at Eve@RightStartMath.com.

Rachel

Customer Care and Conventions

Rachel Anderson has been homeschooling for eleven years. She has been married to Steve for 20 years and has been blessed with four children: Brady – 16, Logan -14, Parker -12, and Makenna – 8. Prior to homeschooling she graduated from Cincinnati Christian University (formerly known as Cincinnati Bible College) with degrees in Music and Business. She worked in Human Resources, Information Technology Department and as a Music Minister at her local church. Once she had children and started to homeschool, she realized that one of her children has significant learning struggles. As a result, she has done considerable research learning how to teach the ‘Struggling Learner’ in her family and loves to pass on her knowledge and experience to other parents looking for help.

Rachel has used RightStart Math from Kindergarten on. In fact she has “graduated” two children from RightStart Math and had been thrilled with her kids’ understanding of math concepts. She currently responds to emails sent to RightStart Math regarding questions about the curriculum or simply parents needing some guidance in their homeschool situations. She also enjoys working at homeschool conventions and sharing information about RightStart Math at the booth or in workshops. You can reach her at Rachel@RightStartMath.com.

Debbie

Customer Care and Conventions

Debbie, who started teaching her children at home in 1993, has six children and currently three grandchildren.  In school Debbie did well in math so thought teaching it would be easy. Wrong!  What she realized is that while she could do math, she didn’t understand it enough to help her children when they didn’t understand.  She tried multiple math curriculum in her search for understanding.  After attending a RightStart presentation at a local home school book fair, Debbie made one of the best decisions in her homeschool journey and transitioned 3 of her children into Level E and started her two youngest in Level B.

As she taught her children with RightStart, she too found herself understanding and being able to apply concepts which opened up a love for math that she didn’t know she had.  She has taught all the Levels, including The Geometric Approach and currently attends conferences so she can share her love for RightStart with others looking for a math curriculum.  She recently stepped in to assist RightStart with their Facebook page.  Debbie also teaches American History and Civics to Jr. High students at a homeschooling outsource school in Texas, works with the youth at her church as well as mentoring some of the ladies too.  In her free time she loves photography, reading, researching and doing puzzles. She can be reached at Debbie@RightStartMath.com.

Teresa

Conventions

Teresa has a B.A. in English Literature and an M.S. in Student Affairs in Higher Education. Previously the Director of Student Activities at an American university in Germany, she is now a homeschooling mom of 5 and has been using RightStart™ since 2005. She is interested in adoption, travel, horses, gardening and reading.

BRADY

Conventions

Brady is a graduate of RightStart Math. He started using RightStart Math when he was 5 years old. Once he completed Levels A through G, he worked through VideoText Algebra and Geometry. As a Junior in high school, he is now taking college math courses at a local college.

He loves to talk with families at conventions about RightStart Math. He has a unique perspective, as a student, to help parents understand how RightStart Math is effective and thorough in its teaching. He loves to demonstrate how fun learning math can be and how important it is to enjoy the learning process.

leana

Conventions

Leana and her husband started homeschooling 9 years ago. When they first decided to homeschool, they attended a local Homeschool Conference with a goal of finding a math curriculum that they liked. After much research they settled on RightStart and haven’t gone back. One of the greatest parts of teaching with RightStart for Leana was that, even though she did fairly well in math herself, she was learning things with her kids and is really understanding math. She has also been able to watch how each of her 4 daughters has benefited from RightStart even with their different personalities and learning styles. With her oldest just finishing level G, she loves watching the critical thinking that has come from RightStart show itself in higher level maths and even other subjects.

Leana and her family live in Calgary, Alberta Canada. When she’s not teaching her girls she can be found outside somewhere shooting archery, camping, gardening, snowshoeing… whatever the weather allows.

Catherine

Conventions

Catherine has been homeschooling her five children since 2001 and has used RightStart Mathematics almost from the beginning. She was drawn to RightStart because of its research-based foundation for teaching math and its easy incorporation with children of all abilities. She also loved its use of smart manipulatives and mastering math facts by playing games. RightStart has helped her develop a love for math which was absent in her own education and has allowed her to better understand and enjoy it. She has especially appreciated how RightStart allows all of her children to feel successful in math, whether they are quick to learn a new concept or need additional practice. Math is everyone’s favorite subject!

Catherine represents RightStart Mathematics at conventions where she is often a featured speaker, sharing math tips and tricks and demonstrating some of her favorite games. She also hosts workshops where she features RightStart Mathematics and shows other families how they can incorporate RightStart whether they educate their children at home or send them to public or private schools. Additionally, Catherine volunteers her time as a math tutor. She loves sharing RightStart with other families and helping them develop a love of math in their homes.
