Passionate About Students and Math, Kabila Williams, RISE-DC Instructor

“My involvement with RISE-DC’s Saturday Academy affords me the opportunity to work directly with two of my passions: inner city student achievement and mathematics. The atmosphere at the Saturday Academy fosters concept acquisition and retention through one-on-one interaction and computer-based software application. I enjoy exploring alternate problem-solving strategies with students and witnessing the many ‘A ha!’ moments that occur when a once-difficult concept is understood.”

Math Top Struggle

“When I first came to Chavez, math was one of my top struggles. I wasn’t quite sure if I’d ever make it to the next grade level when it came to math. However, RISE-DC tutors helped me to understand math on a broader level, and I will be graduating in June and attending my dream college.”
