Searching for an adult math anxiety course 2008-05-13
From Helen:
Hello I am a professional female in my 30's with an continued fear of maths, particularly mental arithmetic. I've been able to keep my 'secret' hidden until now but I dread that one day I'll be found out. More importantly, it is preventing me for applying for promotion where I know maths will be required. I've tried many times on my own to overcome this but soon get frustrated. Therefore, I've been searching the internet to find short (up to one month) courses specifically adressed to alleviating my fears and hopefully teach me maths again in a way that I can remember and not get flustered. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find anything at least not for adults. I would be wiling to take a long vacation to attend this type of course, or tutoring, in any country. I'd much appreciate any pointers.
