Why I Work with Children

I love helping each student to find their own individual way and program of learning mathematics. This year, personal and individual differentiation helped 12 students to complete not only an advanced algebra 1 course, but also an Honors-level Geometry course.

A Favorite Book

Weaponized Lies: How to Think Critically in the Post-Truth Era by Daniel J. Levitin. It made me really understand the media information that bombards us every day, especially how to not be fooled and misled by numbers and logic which is based on misinformation in everyday life.

Quick Fact
