- Teaches students:
- Ages 11+
- Teaching since:
Many years at work applying the principles of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry in engineering have given me a deep understanding of these concepts. I have gained the ability to communicate mathematical concepts to students, as shown by their success.
Instead of just giving finished solutions to the student, my approach is to ask increasingly specific questions to help the student focus on the concept and figure out the answer. In this way, the student practices and learns successful methods for solving problems. Showing a student how to compute the height of a tree without having to directly measure it, for example, increases the students' interest and success in math.
I enjoy helping students perform challenging, detailed, and valuable work exceeding their expectations.
