I have been teaching 7th and 8th graders mathematics in a public school setting since 1999. I also take part teaching incoming 8th graders in a "math institute" each summer.
My teaching style is a mixture of direct instruction and discovery learning with an emphasis on writing & using open-ended questioning strategies.
