PhD in mathematics, University of Pennsylvania.

Helped numerous kids in math over my time.

Have a clearer take on math than just solving equations or doing word problems. Most people just try to get students to acclimate to the standard math pedagogy. Personally, I think the standard math pedagogy is outdated and useless. There is a simpler and clearer way to view mathematics, at least as it pertains to what is being taught at the high school and college level.

I also try to introduce more real-life examples, even though I understand there is a need to "solve the problems" to get the good grades to get into colleges. (That route to getting into college is also outdated, by the way.)
