Ginger ...me, there is no better feeling than seeing the light come on when a concept that was "too hard" becomes understandable to a student. I also love that students from past years will approach me in public and share their successes and thank me for the help I was able to give them.... I believe that everyone can have a deeper understanding of mathematical principles. I also believe that there is more than one way to solve any given problem. I do not believe that rote memorization of facts or processes is true learning. To that end, I talk with each student and ask questions to find out how each person thinks and how they best learn. I am then able to show them different techniques using their strengths to guide the lesson. I continue to check for understanding throughout the lesson to ensure that the process is working, and if not, I change direction. In this way, my instruction is personalized for each student.

Leo Nothing gives me greater satisfaction than seeing the look on a student's face when he/she has just grasped a difficult concept.... My teaching philosophy is difficult concepts are merely combinations of simple concepts. If you show a student that all the pieces are straightforward, they broaden their horizons and reach great heights.... In a first session with a new student, I would find out what interests them so I can draw analogies from that area. I would also assess what they know already on the topic we will be studying so I know more clearly what I should assist them with.
