MY TEACHING STYLE

Math should be fun. It can be a game, a puzzle or a way of finding out something useful. But there is no reason it can't be fun. The only good way to learn math is to do it. We all know how to count and how to draw pictures using basic shapes. Those are a great starting point.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I was not a great math student in high school or college. When I finished school and had the change to learn math in my own way, I found I liked it. When I became and engineer and needed math to solve pressing problems, I had a reason to practice and got a lot better at it. Teaching math to my own children when they were little was just a hoot. We started with numbers and shapes and just took it from there.
