Why does Honor Harrington struggle with math?

Her empathic link to Nimitz enables him to gain some insight into mathamatics but also enables his confusion to inhibit Honor's ability.

My theory is that she is actually brilliant at maths. How else could she seemingly intuitively sense the perfect action to take in fleet combat? However having to spell it out step by step is a problem. Fifty odd years ago I ended up topping my state in maths, but got into trouble for just writing out the answer, without going through the steps.
