MY TEACHING STYLE

Our passion is helping mathematics students answer the question, "When am I ever going to use this?" By bringing interesting and engaging real world contexts into the classroom, we help students look at the world through a mathematical lens. When learners begin to see that mathematics is not an isolated subject in school but rather a powerful tool that can help them make smart decisions, they become motivated and empowered. The learning activities I create engage and empower students.
