Meet Miss Math


Welcome! Could your child benefit from some extra support in math?  I tailor each session to best help meet the student where they are at and build upon their knowledge.

My name is Sarah Hanson and I am Miss Math.  As a multiple subject credentialed teacher, I have taught middle school math for 4 years in San Francisco (6th, 7th and 8th grades).  I have a two young daughters and I have decided to take some time off from full-time classroom teaching to spend more time with them.  I absolutely love teaching math, and that's why I started Miss Math.   I am background checked and I sometimes substitute teach in Pacifica as well. I know what it takes for kids to be successful in math, and I tailor individual lesson plans for my students to insure they are getting what they need. I can help them be successful with the "new math" they are learning in school.

In 2010, 2011, and 2013 I attended the following Making Math Real courses at the University of California Berkeley:  4 Operations, 9 Lines,  Time & Money, Fractions/Decimals/Advanced Place-Value, Pre-Algebra & Games, and Algebra and I often infuse multi sensory instruction into my sessions. I utilize Making Math Real strategies in most of my math remediation sessions.  To learn more about these Making Math Real classes, including their focus and philosophy,  visit their site at
