September 22, 2017

Gyda Gudjonsdottir is a teacher who created a 5-week math course in Icelandic that serves as training for the standardized tests in math. Her courses are designed to help students as young as 11 excel in Math. She started her online course in 2013, and is now working on creating other courses and looking forward to launching her membership site.
