Here are some of my series:

Fractions –
I have a series of eleven articles that follow a cyclical learning approach.  Each article is a complete lesson on fractions that takes children step-by-step through the process of learning fractions.  By creating mathematical models, your child will gain a deeper and more concrete understanding of dividing fractions.  This deeper understanding will help to ensure a successful educational career.

Geometry –
I have a series of four articles that follow a cyclical learning approach.  Each article is a complete lesson on geometry that takes children step-by-step through the process of learning area, surface area, volume, and how to graph on a coordinate grid.  While working through these articles, your child will gain a deeper and more concrete understanding of geometry.

Division –
After years of watching children struggle with the standard algorithm for long division, I set out to develop an easier method.  I created Area Division, which is close enough to long division, that children can switch back once they understand the concepts.
Area Division is structure in such a way that absolutely anyone can successfully divide large numbers.  I developed Area Division by incorporating skip counting, (I refer to it as “counting by the numbers” in my videos), and an area box for the division.  By incorporating counting by the numbers, even students who do not know their multiplication facts can successfully divide large numbers.

Multiplication –
I have a series of five articles that follow a cyclical learning approach.

I developed Area Multiplication specifically for my students who did NOT know their multiplication facts and could not multiply large numbers.  I have had incredible results!  These strategies work with children who have ADHD, Dyslexia, and other learning disabilities.  Virtually every one of my students who has learned this strategy has passed the standards based assessment for multiplying large numbers.

###### More to come… I am currently working on the follow series:
• Ratios & Proportions
• Algebra
• Assorted Stumper Problems
###### Thanks again for your patronage.

I have been working to give back to the profession that I love so dearly.  I have created this site for families who need help in math, but cannot afford an in person tutor.  When used properly, these articles are the next best thing to having a personal tutor for math.
