What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I have 24 years of experience in math education, the majority of it devoted to being the classroom teacher in grades 3-12 teaching math. Over the years, math education has been through many changes in terms of curriculum, classroom technologies and more. However, that one question we ask ourselves has always been the same: "How do we improve the quality of our teaching and our students' learning? How do we make our children more motivated? And how do we get our students to value and ‘own’ their education?" The only consistent factor we can identify is the role of our teachers, whose passion, enthusiasm and knowledge are the vitally important phenomenon in deciding whether our students will be successful and motivated. No other factor in education can make the same impact on student learning than the teachers who are effective, talented and passionate!

I do not believe learning should be a process where students passively absorb information as a result of repeated practice. Genuine learning takes place when the teacher and students are actively involved in the learning process. Therefore, mathematics instruction should vary; including a discussion between teacher and students and among students, exposition by the teacher, and practice of mathematical methods.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I taught Math all grades 4-12 for 15 years.
