Teaching since:
1976

I love to teach and especially love to teach math and writing. I like to focus on mathematics, which to me is like writing, because students sometimes think that if they are good at one (for example, writing) then they cannot be good at the other. I am here to tell you that you can understand and be good at both. I teach both. My writing (as well as literature and speech communication students) learn from me and get to think mathematically while my math students get to think like writers (everything is planned and is a process). It may sound complicated or strange, but it really is not. Math is pure fun! Math is about patterns, and colours, and music, and shapes, and just about everything that makes ideas come to life! Like my writing students embark upon a journey toward being successful in an area in which you may not have had much success in the past. Hold your breath. Exhale with a smile. Dive into the world of math and math sense!
