TEACHING EXPERIENCE

5 years of teaching math in high school, and then 20 years of teaching math in college (College Algebra, Trigonometry, PreCalculus, and Business Calculus, as well as some high school review)

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style reflects my philosopy that students should understand what they do and not just do it mechanically or without thought. As much as possible, they should see a use for what they are learning. This has been the motivation behind a lot of the work I have created through the years

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Shining moments are the times that students have stopped me in a parking lot or shopping center several years later to tell me I was responsible for them graduating from college with their chosen degree (when I only had them in one math class). Or the surprised open-mouth look on the face of a student who suddenly figures out just what to do after thinking for a considerable time.
