### “Math Cafe” Gives Students Options for Math Success

Sometimes when I tutor I tell students that they are “hanging the in Math Cafe.”

I explain that when I tutor, I like to offer students a “menu of math options.”

Instead of showing students just one way to work a math problem, I try to present a “menu” of approaches, and I tell students that they need to listen so they can decide which approach works best for them.
