I studied mathematics at Purdue University and obtained a PhD there. I have over ten years experience teaching Algebra, Calculus 1-3, Differential Equations, and similar math courses in a research university setting. This has always entailed conducting office hours with interested students on a one-on-one basis, and these types of sessions are typically most productive.
Learning mathematics is a lot like picking up a musical instrument. If you absorb the ideas of a learning unit, and then practice the material, you can expect to be able to play that instrument, and play it relatively well, over time. It is just that simple!
Right now my biggest non-academic interest is programming, mostly AI and machine learning. Which still sounds academic, I know, but it can really be fun.
