TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught math to students of wildly different grades, skills and comfort levels, from middle school to adult education. I understand the students who don't "get" math. Often students struggle because math is a foreign language, using a different vocabulary, different symbols, different grammar, and largely abstract ideas. We as teachers need to create ways for students to learn the language of math. As a second-carer math teacher, I have fallen in love with problem solving, and strive to help my students to develop better problem solving skills and practices.

MY TEACHING STYLE

When people ask what I do, I frequently say that I teach math as a foreign language. After a chuckle or a "what was that" look, I explain that math IS a foreign language. Some people learn second and third languages better than others do. My approach to teaching is very visual, and I always incorporate a drawing or visual component to my lessons. If math is completely abstract, there aren't enough handholds on the learning scaffold for students to hang on. I try to use art in my classes as often as possible.
