Adrian Cox - Settles

Owner/ Math Specialist/ Teacher/ Tutor/ Schooling Consultant/ The Parent-Teacher Mediator


My name is Adrian Cox-Settles and I am the owner of Diverse Interactive Learning (Math Does Matter LLC). I specialize in Mathematics Education and have been teaching, leading departments, and tutoring for over 20 years. In 2014, I was even named the Teacher of the Year by the National Technical Association for my accomplishments. Outside of teaching as a profession, I have also been a virtual learning coach and a homeschool mom for years.

I grew up in the Lexington Terrace Housing Projects of Baltimore, Maryland, and I am a product of the Baltimore City Public School System. I have spent much of my teaching career educating youth in Baltimore City Public, Charter, Private, and Community College. I know how it feels to struggle academically, and I also know what it takes to be successful. Most of my grit and my tenacity is the byproduct of wanting better for myself, wanting to live a life where I need not worry about food or money. That’s part of the reason I value education so much and I try to help others with theirs. A good education can open the door to so many opportunities and if I can help others with that, then I can potentially be a bright light in their lives helping them in their pursuit of success. My strong passion and love for mathematics given to me by God opened doors for academic advancements. In short, it saved my life!
I offer free tutoring consultations, educational consultations, parent/teacher mediations, and adult math tutoring sessions.

Veronica Johnson

When my son was in the 8th grade, he was struggling with Algebra 1. I contacted Diverse Interactive Learning/Math Does Matter for help. The tutor was very helpful and patient with my son. My son learned new math skills to help him be successful in math. My son passed Algebra 1. He was able to take those skills he learned at Diverse Interactive Learning/Math Does Matter to help him with math in high school. I would highly recommend Diverse Interactive Learning/Math Does Matter to all parents looking for help for their children.

Thank you.

Sr. Pari

Sr. Adrian is a fantastic math tutor. My daughter always struggled in math and since Sr. Adrian has helped her with some of the key foundational concepts it seems like this year she is doing so much better in this subject. I really think Sr. Adrian helped her with the foundation and made her appreciate and begin to enjoy math. Now she is doing so much better that she hardly needs to be tutored thanks to this service.

Thank you so much for this incredible service!


Math is his strongest subject right now. He said he has not started the Pythagorean theory in class yet but I believe that sustaining his “math Mind” with you over the summer has improved his math at school. 

Shanae – Jayla’s Mom

Thank you so much Adrian for all of your hard work and attentiveness with Jayla, and helping her to be a strong confident student. Math was her struggle and now she is one of the top students in her class and knows math from several grade levels. My fear was that she would fall behind, but with your summer session and then individual sessions she is ahead and focused. I thank you often and I will continue to support you.


Wa laikum Salaam Sis Adrian,

Najla has been mantaining an “A”in Honors Algebra 1, Al Hamdulillah! Your tutoring sessions helped build her confidence. Shukran for all your help.

She actually made math painless for me. I highly recommend her. She is absolutely amazing!

Wahaj Kashif

During my days in high school, I was struggling with my classes. I had a hard time understanding the topics that were discussed in my class. But ever since I found a tutor through Diverse Interactive Learning, I was not only able to understand my classes but pass them with good grades as well. I was definitely satisfied with the tutors that Diverse Interactive Learning provided to me and greatly appreciated it. So, if you need any type of assistance or need a tutor, this is the right place to look at!

Yolanda Londie Eppes

Sr Adrian is a great mathematician and tutor. She makes math easy. Cube roots were explained in a very easy manner. Thank you!

Abrar Kashif

Starting college, I was really struggling with Pre-Calculus. After a couple of sessions with a tutor from Diverse Interactive Learning, I was able to understand the topic and subject much better. Because of this, I ended up getting an A!


After 25 years of not being in a classroom, I found myself taking the enrolling in an Intermediate Algebra course, not remembering anything from high school, and trying to stay afloat in a fast paced class. Had it not been for the tutoring received from Adrian, I would not have been able to pass the course. I had tried different online resources, none of which met my needs. I needed one-on-one tutoring with someone I could connect with that could meet me where I was, and Adrian was it. Adrian definitely has a dedication and passion for mathematics, and a gifted teaching style. As an adult learner, Adrian found a unique way of tutoring me as she broke down the problems in a way I was able to understand and make sense out of them. Through God’s good graces, Adrian’s patience, dedication, love of math and tutoring, and in my application, collectively, I was able to pass my Intermediate Algebra course with an A. WOOHOO!!!! THANK YOU, ADRIAN!!!!!


The session was AWESOME!!!! I’m looking forward to learning and growing more.
