Hi there. I have four sons, all of whom I have extended in Math. My youngest (7) asked me how it is I make Math so exciting, I pondered how it is many teachers fail to share just how wonderful the study of numbers really is. And I lament that so many young boys are tuning out to Math around Year 9/10.
My approach to sparking interest is simply to share conversational snippets of our rich history of number theory and discoveries, and to use examples to experiment with pencil and paper to recreate what has been learnt and to "discover" afresh how we know certain Mathematical proofs and come to particular formulas. For example, I don't believe it helps a lad to know the area of a circle is pi * r^2, without first understanding how to calculate pi, how to remember pi, and maybe then we'll get to slicing up some pizza!
I have had experience as a teacher aide at a local intermediate / high school, where I would often take groups of children aside for either remedial or advanced math, depending on the students.
I'm a dad with lot's of rubbish dad-jokes, an amateur magician and playful learner, who wants to meet with young lads who are open to learning. I'm also a keen surfer who has spent too much time in Hawai‘i to still be as bad as I am at it. But my favourite thing to do is watch my boys grow and learn, be that in sports, academically, or emotionally.
I have a BSc in Psychology and a Diploma in Multimedia. I have 20 years experience in digital design and web. I also have experience teaching Rubik‘s Cube and Maths to groups. But my heart is in seeing young lads develop confidence in their ability to learn.
